When we find ourselves in uncharted territory in life, we normally 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 into that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Huffman 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 Houston Mechanical LLC.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are just a few of the things that the experts 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 working 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 decreased efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
- View the filter. One of the most common causes of 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 undone, 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the pros.
