When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Troy 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 Edington Heating & Cooling Inc.
But what makes it so important to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog about this, but here are four 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils may collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may 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 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 loose, potentially causing damage 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 using a programmable thermostat
