From energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the environment. Check for efficient airflow through the system. Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Inspect the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority.
