When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Menomonie and western Wisconsin 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 Halverson Brothers Inc.
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog covering this, but here are four of the things that the experts do during the air conditioner service process:
- Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the right amount of refrigerant makes sure 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 needs 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 may collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing 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 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 affected 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
