The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Kearney

When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Kearney 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 Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning.

But what makes it so important to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog about this, but here are just a few 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 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 may collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache.
  • Look at 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 hurt 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 deterioration 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 pros.
