When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically seek 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 be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Lincoln 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 AW Heating & Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about 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 proper amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can damage 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, creating 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 tougher 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 unfastened, potentially causing damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wanting to know what the experts at AW Heating & Air Conditioning can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a shout at 402-438-7992 to set up an appointment.
