The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Manassas Park09/16/2015 When we encounter uncharted territory in life, we usually seek the advice of someone who has been there and done that – an expert. For the majority of us, heating and cooling equipment or air conditioner service would be included in that category. It’s certainly not knowledge that the majority homeowners in Manassas Park 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 handled thanks to Woody's Sudden Service Inc. But what makes it so important to have a professional handle your air conditioner service over watching a handful of YouTube videos and attempting to do it yourself? We could write an unending blog on 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 ensures you have a system that is running efficiently. Too little refrigerant means your system will run longer, lowering efficiency and making your system work more than it should. Too much refrigerant also means reduced efficiency and can hurt your system in the long run. Clean the coils. Both the indoor and outdoor coils may collect dust and dirt over time, hurting your system’s efficiency in the process. Plus, a dirty indoor coil can potentially cause it to freeze over, creating an even bigger headache. View 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 unfastened, potentially causing deterioration to your system’s electrical components, including blower motors, compressors and control panels. While there are tasks that you can do yourself, like buying and using a programmable thermostat, there are some things that should be left to the professionals.
