The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Lake Worth

When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually seek 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 Lake Worth 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 covered thanks to Smyth Air Conditioning Inc.

But what makes it so crucial to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it 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 proper amount of refrigerant ensures you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it needs to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run.
  • Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, creating 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 unfastened, potentially causing harm 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 professionals.
