As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the atmosphere. Look for proper airflow through the system. Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Look for the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority.
