When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Albuquerque 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 covered thanks to I-Deal HVAC.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog on this, but here are just a few 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 correct amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can hurt 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.
- Check the filter. One of the most frequent 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 hurt 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 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 pros. If you’re curious as to what the pros at I-Deal HVAC can offer you when you arrange air conditioner service, give us a call at 505-445-1250 to set up an appointment.
