How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done?


Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Olathe summertime, have the specialists at Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
