The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Macon09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Macon 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 covered thanks to Air Temperature Control. But what makes it so important to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are just a few 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 proper amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. 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 might 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 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 loose, potentially causing damage 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 experts.
