When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Plano 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 Air Today A/C & Heating.
But what makes it so critical to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are just a few of the things that the pros do during the air conditioner service process:
- Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the correct amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils may collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
- View the filter. One of the most frequent causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it harder 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 harm to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are things that you can do yourself, like buying and utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the experts.
