When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually 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 the majority homeowners in Thedford 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 Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so important to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog about 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 makes sure 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 has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can 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, generating an even bigger headache.
- View the filter. One of the most routine causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it harder 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 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wondering what the experts at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning can offer you when you arrange air conditioner service, give us a ring at 519-296-4437 to set up an appointment.
