When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Branchville 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 covered thanks to Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc..
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are a couple 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 means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. 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 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, generating an even bigger headache.
- Look at the filter. One of the most common 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 undone, potentially causing damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
