When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in New Castle 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 Central Heating & Plumbing.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. 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 can collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
- Check the filter. One of the most frequent 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 hurt 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 harm 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
