The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Lake Worth

September 16, 2015

When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we typically search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that most 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 handled thanks to Smyth Air Conditioning Inc.

But what makes it so important to have a professional complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an endless blog covering 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 means 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 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 may collect dust and dirt over time, decreasing your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may 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 hurt by dirty filters as well.
  • Inspect the electrical connections. As is the case with a lot of appliances, connectors and screws can come undone, potentially causing deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels.
While there are things 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.
