When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Macon 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 Air Temperature Control.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting 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 correct amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can hurt 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 might potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
- View 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 affected by dirty filters as well.
- Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come unfastened, 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 using a programmable thermostat
