The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Bountiful09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Bountiful 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 handled thanks to Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling. But what makes it so important to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog about 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 right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can harm your system in the long run. Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might 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 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 diminished by dirty filters as well. Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come loose, potentially causing harm 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.
