When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. 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 McMurray have already and not one that many have the desire to gain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be handled thanks to Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing.
But what makes it so important to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog about this, but here are a couple 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 has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might 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 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 undone, potentially causing damage 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 using a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wondering what the pros at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a call at 724-370-0141 to set up an appointment.
