When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically search for 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most homeowners in Naples 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 covered thanks to Speedy Air Conditioning.
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 endless blog about this, but here are just a few 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 correct amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means lower 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, decreasing 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 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 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat
, there are some things that should be left to the professionals. If you’re wondering what the experts at Speedy Air Conditioning can offer you when you set up air conditioner service, give us a ring at 239-244-3439 to set up an appointment.
