The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Bossier City09/16/2015 When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we normally 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 fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that most homeowners in Bossier City 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc. But what makes it so crucial to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are a couple 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 correct amount of refrigerant means 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 needs to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm your system in the long run. Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils may 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. Check 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 unfastened, 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 experts.
