When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Wyandotte 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 handled thanks to Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending 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 means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, producing 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 affected by dirty filters as well.
- Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come loose, potentially causing damage 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 using a programmable thermostat
