The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Buellton

September 16, 2015

When we find ourselves uncharted territory in life, we usually look to the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Buellton 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 taken care of thanks to Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning.

But what makes it so critical to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a couple YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write a never ending blog about this, but here are a couple 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 ensures you have a system that is operating efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will work longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can damage 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 can potentially cause it to freeze over, producing an even bigger headache.
  • Look at the filter. One of the most frequent 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 loose, potentially causing harm 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 using a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the experts.
