When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we typically search for 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 in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Logan have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to Western Mechanical, Inc..
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog about 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 correct amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing 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, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 harder 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 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat
