The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Stuart09/16/2015 When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we normally look to 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 be in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that many homeowners in Stuart 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 Nisair Air Conditioning. But what makes it so important to have a specialist handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying 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 right amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has 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 can collect dust and dirt over time, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might 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 affected 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 jobs that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the pros.
