The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Racine

September 16, 2015

When we run into uncharted territory in life, we typically look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Racine have already and not one that many have the desire to attain the skills in. Luckily for you, your air conditioner service needs can be handled thanks to Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc.

But what makes it so critical to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write an endless blog about this, but here are four 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 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 should. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
  • Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can collect dust and dirt over time, hurting 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 routine 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.
