The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in East Hanover09/16/2015 When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we typically search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in East Hanover have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be covered thanks to Effective Service Group, LLC. But what makes it so important to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on this, but here are a couple 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 proper amount of refrigerant makes sure 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 reduced 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, 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 harder 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 unfastened, potentially causing damage to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels. While there are tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the experts.
