When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Paxinos 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 LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc..
But what makes it so crucial 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 a never ending blog about 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 operate longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 tougher 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 deterioration 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
