When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally look to 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 fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Perry 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 taken care of thanks to Gillman Heating and Air.
But what makes it so important to have a professional complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are four 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 working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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 may 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, producing 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 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 things that you can do yourself, like buying and utilizing a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the professionals. If you’re wanting to know what the experts at Gillman Heating and Air can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a call at 478-202-3076 to set up an appointment.
