When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that the majority homeowners in Front Royal have already and not one that many have the desire to acquire the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to Dave's Diversified Services.
But what makes it so critical to have a specialist handle 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 correct amount of refrigerant makes sure 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 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, decreasing 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 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 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 using a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the professionals. If you’re wanting to know what the pros at Dave's Diversified Services can offer you when you arrange air conditioner service, give us a shout at 540-369-3971 to set up an appointment.
