The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Dallas09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that the majority homeowners in Dallas 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 Tri County Air Care LLC. But what makes it so critical to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending 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 proper amount of refrigerant means you have a system that is operating 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 damage 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, creating an even bigger headache. View the filter. One of the most frequent causes for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty filter. Dirty filters make it harder 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 loose, potentially causing deterioration 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
