There are definitely many reasons to having air conditioning service regularly and adequately, depending on your particular situation. You need to talk with your service provider and have them understand the particularities of your situation prior to deciding just how often you should have air conditioning service.
Some important factors determine how often your AC gets serviced such as:
- How much refrigerant the AC unit can hold:
5 TCO2 of refrigerant: the unit requires a service check once a year.
50 TCO2 refrigerants: the unit requires a service check every six months.
500 TCO2 refrigerants: the unit requires a service check.
- How much the AC unit used:
Usage of air conditioner is high (Often, Daily): the unit requires a service every three months.
Usage of air conditioner is low (Not Often, Summer Months Only): the unit requires a service once a year.
New AC unit requires one visit per year from the AC service team.
Old AC unit requires two or even three visits every year for regular inspection from the AC service team.
- Pollution and Dust Accumulation:
Monthly or bi-monthly service is recommended in dusty areas and polluted cities.
