When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally look to 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Marshalltown 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 Kapaun & Brown Inc..
But what makes it so important to have a pro take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending 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 correct amount of refrigerant makes sure 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 has 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 might collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
- View 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 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.
While there are things that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat
