When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in Kutztown and Breinigsville 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 Moyer Total Indoor Comfort.
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog covering this, but here are just a few 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 right amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced 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, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
- Look at 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 undone, potentially causing deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are jobs that you can do yourself, like buying and taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
