The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Waterloo

When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Waterloo 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 handled thanks to Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd.

But what makes it so crucial to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog on this, but here are a couple of the things that the professionals do during the air conditioner service process:

  • Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the correct amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can hurt 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 may potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
  • Check 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 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 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the pros.
