The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Lexington

When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we typically seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – a pro. For most of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be in that category. It’s certainly not something that many homeowners in Lexington 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 covered thanks to James Heating & A/C, Inc.

But what makes it so critical to have a pro handle your air conditioner service over watching a few YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending 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 correct amount of refrigerant makes sure you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, reducing efficiency and making your system work more than it should. 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, harming your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil might 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 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 deterioration 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 experts.
