When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Cambridge 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 taken care of thanks to Pliescott HVAC Services LLC .
But what makes it so critical to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are a couple 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 correct amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm 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.
- Look at 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 diminished 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 harm 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 using a programmable thermostat
