When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we typically look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Haines City 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 covered thanks to Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co..
But what makes it so critical to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are a couple 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 proper amount of refrigerant ensures 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 reduced 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 tougher 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 loose, 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
