When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Huntsville 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 handled thanks to All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.
But what makes it so critical to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are a couple 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 proper amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might 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, producing 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 tougher 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 unfastened, 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
, there are some things that should be left to the professionals. If you’re wanting to know what the pros at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a call at 256-801-4701 to set up an appointment.
