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 many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Bloomfield 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 covered thanks to Stanford Heating & Cooling.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are a couple 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 ensures 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 should. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can hurt 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 may potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
- View the filter. One of the most frequent causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it harder 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 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat
