The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Crestview09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Crestview 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 Gordon Air Conditioning. But what makes it so crucial to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are four 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 right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run. Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can 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 diminished 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 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.
