The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio09/16/2015 When we run into uncharted territory in life, we usually search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a seasoned veteran. 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 Napoleon and Northwest Ohio 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 taken care of thanks to Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc.. But what makes it so crucial to have a professional complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and trying to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog on 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 right amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can hurt 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, generating 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 tougher 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 loose, potentially causing damage 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 pros.
