The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Locust09/16/2015 When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically seek 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 something that many homeowners in Locust 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 taken care of thanks to Dynamic Comfort Solutions. But what makes it so critical to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog on this, but here are just a few 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can damage your system in the long run. Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils may collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache. Check the filter. One of the most common 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 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 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 taking advantage of a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the pros.
