When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Rocky Mount have already and not one that many have the desire to gain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be handled thanks to Davis Heating & Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are a couple 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 right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can hurt 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 might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 loose, potentially causing harm 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
