The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Englewood09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Englewood have already and not one that many have the desire to acquire the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be taken care of thanks to TemperaturePro®. But what makes it so important to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog on this, but here are four 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 right amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache. Look at 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 undone, potentially causing deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels. While there are jobs that you can do yourself, like buying and taking advantage of a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
