The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Hickory

When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Hickory 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 covered thanks to Climate Control Systems.

But what makes it so crucial to have a pro take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are a couple of the things that the pros 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, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can harm 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 might potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
  • View the filter. One of the most common 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 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 experts.
