When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Port St. Lucie 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 Custom Air Systems Inc.
But what makes it so important to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog on 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 right amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can hurt 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 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 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
