The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Port Saint Lucie09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally look to 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 fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Port Saint Lucie have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be covered thanks to Custom Air Systems Inc. But what makes it so crucial to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are four 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 correct 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 reduced 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 can 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 affected 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 harm 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
