When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in Franklin Lakes 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 covered thanks to Total Comfort.
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog about this, but here are a couple 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 correct amount of refrigerant means 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 lower efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
- Look at the filter. One of the most routine 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 hurt 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 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
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wondering what the team at Total Comfort can offer you when you schedule air conditioner service, give us a shout at 201-268-5663 to set up an appointment.
