When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Alliance have already and not one that many have the desire to acquire the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be handled thanks to Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces.
But what makes it so important to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are four of the things that the professionals do during the air conditioner service process:
- Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the proper amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
- Check the filter. One of the most common causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it tougher for your system to pull air through it before being sent throughout your home. Your home’s indoor air quality can also be affected by dirty filters as well.
- Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come unfastened, potentially causing damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
