When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Stuart 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 handled thanks to Breathe Healthier Air.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog covering 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 correct amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means reduced 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, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can 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 affected 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
