When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that most homeowners in Omaha 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 Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning.
But what makes it so crucial to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog covering this, but here are just a few 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 working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
- Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might 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, producing an even bigger headache.
- View 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 harm 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 wondering what the pros at Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning can offer you when you arrange air conditioner service, give us a ring at 402-509-5940 to set up an appointment.
