The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Columbus

When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually 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 be included in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Columbus 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 covered thanks to Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling.

But what makes it so critical to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending 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 makes sure you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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 can collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
  • Check the filter. One of the most frequent 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 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 pros.
