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 be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in Hudsonville have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services.
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are four 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 right amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
- Look at the filter. One of the most routine 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 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat
