When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Tucker 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 handled thanks to ACS Heating and Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are a couple of the things that the pros 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 run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs 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 can collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can 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 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 undone, 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re curious as to what the team at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning can offer you when you arrange air conditioner service, give us a call at 770-450-1539 to set up an appointment.
