When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in West Jefferson have already and not one that many have the desire to gain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc..
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are just a few of the things that the experts 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 working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can hurt 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, creating an even bigger headache.
- Look at the filter. One of the most routine causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it more difficult for your system to pull air through it before being sent throughout your home. Your home’s indoor air quality can also be diminished 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.
