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 the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Tucson 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 Ambient Air.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering 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 makes sure you have a system that is operating 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 hurt your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, creating 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 harder 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 things that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the professionals. If you’re wondering what the pros at Ambient Air can offer you when you schedule air conditioner service, give us a call at 520-201-3871 to set up an appointment.
