The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Plover

September 16, 2015

When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we typically 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 fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Plover 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 handled thanks to Point Heating & Cooling.

But what makes it so important to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are just a few 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 correct amount of refrigerant means 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, 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.
  • Check 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 affected by dirty filters as well.
  • Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come loose, potentially causing deterioration 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.
