The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Long Beach

September 16, 2015

When we run into uncharted territory in life, we normally search for the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For many of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would fall in to that category. It’s certainly not a trait that the majority homeowners in Long Beach 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 covered thanks to YES R&M Inc..

But what makes it so crucial to have a professional take care of your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and giving it a go yourself? We could write an unending blog on 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 working efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will operate longer, decreasing efficiency and making your system work more than it has to. Too much refrigerant also means lower efficiency and can harm your system in the long run.
  • Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils might 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, 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 harder 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 undone, 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 professionals.
