The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Genoa

When we encounter 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 included in that category. It’s certainly not a trait that many homeowners in Genoa 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 Assured Appliance and Heating & Air.

But what makes it so critical to have a pro complete your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write a never ending blog covering this, but here are four 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 operate longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means decreased efficiency and can damage your system in the long run.
  • Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils can 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, producing an even bigger headache.
  • Check 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 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 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
