When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Mechanicsburg 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 covered thanks to H & H Service Company.
But what makes it so crucial to have a specialist handle 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 just a few 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 correct amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can damage 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 may potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
- View the filter. One of the most routine causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it harder 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 harm 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
