The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Dallas09/16/2015 When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. 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 Dallas 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 Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas. But what makes it so important to have a professional complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are just a few 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 proper amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. 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, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache. View the filter. One of the most common 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 hurt 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 deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels. While there are tasks 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.
