When we encounter 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 be in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Abilene have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be covered thanks to Abilene Air-Tech Inc.
But what makes it so important to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are four of the things that the professionals 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 working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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 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, 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 tougher for your system to pull air through it before being sent throughout your home. Your home’s indoor air quality can also be hurt 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 damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are tasks 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 Abilene Air-Tech Inc can offer you when you schedule air conditioner service, give us a call at 325-200-4667 to set up an appointment.
