When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Mechanicsville 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 handled thanks to M & S Heating & Air LLC.
But what makes it so critical to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog covering this, but here are four 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 proper amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased 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, 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 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 unfastened, potentially causing damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
