The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in West Palm Beach09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the slogan that we use at Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc., especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in West Palm Beach do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. are here to help with any service needs you may have. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and perfecting, proving why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor 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 possibility to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search 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 familiar causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to bring 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 proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
