When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For the majority 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 Brookfield 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 Central Air LLC.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are just a few 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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, 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 more difficult for your system to pull air through it before being sent throughout your home. Your home’s indoor air quality can also be diminished 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 using a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the experts. If you’re curious as to what the team at Central Air LLC can offer you when you schedule air conditioner service, give us a ring at 203-357-5913 to set up an appointment.
