When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually 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 a trait that most homeowners in Rock Hill 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 covered thanks to US Air Heating and Cooling.
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are a couple 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 correct amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing 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, 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.
- View 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 diminished 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 deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are jobs that you can do yourself, like buying and taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wanting to know what the experts at US Air Heating and Cooling can offer you when you schedule air conditioner service, give us a ring at 803-220-0761 to set up an appointment.
