When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Wisconsin Rapids 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 Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc.
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 an unending blog covering 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 ensures you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can harm 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, creating 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 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
