When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Delray 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 covered thanks to Kilbourne Heating & AC.
But what makes it so crucial to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a couple 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 pros do during the air conditioner service process:
- Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Having a system that has the right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased 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, generating an even bigger headache.
- Look at the filter. One of the most routine 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 unfastened, potentially causing damage 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 using a programmable thermostat
