The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Rocky Mount09/16/2015 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 fall in to that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Rocky Mount 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 taken care of thanks to Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. But what makes it so critical to have a specialist complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog covering 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 means you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means reduced 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, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil may potentially cause it to freeze over, generating an even bigger headache. Check 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 undone, 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 pros.
