The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Lexington09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the motto that we use at James Heating & A/C, Inc, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Lexington do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at James Heating & A/C, Inc are here to support with any service needs you may have. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years learning and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your internal and outdoor coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect for these connections and stay clear from blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels. Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most conventional causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, reducing the productivity and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the experts.
