The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Plainfield

When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Plainfield 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 PWA Heating & Cooling Inc.

But what makes it so important to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog about 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 means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
  • Look at the filter. One of the most routine 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 affected 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 tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and taking advantage of a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
