When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Norton 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 taken care of thanks to HCE Systems Inc.
But what makes it so critical to have a professional complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless 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 ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
- Check 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 deterioration 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 using a programmable thermostat
