The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in West Palm Beach09/16/2015 When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in West Palm Beach have already and not one that many have the desire to gain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be handled thanks to Summit Air Conditioning Inc. But what makes it so important to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog covering this, but here are just a few of the things that the professionals do during the air conditioner service process: Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the proper amount of refrigerant means 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 should. 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 might potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache. Check 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 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 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 professionals.
