When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically seek 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 a trait that most homeowners in Moline 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 J.L. Brady Company LLC.
But what makes it so critical to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog about this, but here are four 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 ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. 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 can collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 more difficult 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 undone, 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 professionals. If you’re curious as to what the team at J.L. Brady Company LLC can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a ring at 309-517-7511 to set up an appointment.
