When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically search for 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 knowledge that most homeowners in McHenry 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 taken care of thanks to Jett's Heating & Air Inc..
But what makes it so critical to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog on 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. 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 may 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.
- Look at the filter. One of the most frequent 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 damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
