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 many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Suffolk/Nassau County have already and not one that many have the desire to acquire the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to Airmax Long Island Inc.
But what makes it so important to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on 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 right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. 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 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.
- 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 harm to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
