When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we normally search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. 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 Neptune City 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 Aggressive Mechanical.
But what makes it so critical to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are four 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 right amount of refrigerant means 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 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 might 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, creating an even bigger headache.
- View 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 deterioration 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the pros. If you’re wanting to know what the pros at Aggressive Mechanical can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a call at 732-806-5536 to set up an appointment.
