The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Crestview

September 16, 2015

When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Crestview 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 taken care of thanks to Gordon Air Conditioning.

But what makes it so important to have a specialist take care of your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending 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 work longer, decreasing 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, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache.
  • View 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 loose, potentially causing harm 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
