The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Abilene09/16/2015 When we encounter 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Abilene 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 Abilene Air-Tech Inc. But what makes it so critical to have a pro take care of your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog about this, but here are a couple 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 right amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can damage 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, creating an even bigger headache. View the filter. One of the most routine 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 unfastened, potentially causing deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels. While there are jobs that you can do yourself, like buying and utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
