When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in South Beloit and Belvidere 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.
But what makes it so important to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog about 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 run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can harm 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 can 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 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 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 deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and utilizing a programmable thermostat
