Before we get to the warmest days of the Topeka summertime, have the specialists at Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. perform your annual air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always: Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the atmosphere. Look for correct airflow through the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
