The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in West Palm Beach09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Summit Air Conditioning Inc, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in West Palm Beach do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Summit Air Conditioning Inc are here to support with any service needs you may have. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our professionals have spent years learning and sharpening, showing why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your interior and outdoor coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and cause some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels. Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more often than it needs to, lowering the productivity and maybe even impeding the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
