The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Tuscaloosa09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at KDM Service Corporation, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Tuscaloosa do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at KDM Service Corporation are here to assist 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 some money. Here are a number of the things that our professionals have spent years studying and refining, proving why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your interior 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 simple procedure and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and cause some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will inspect for these connections and avoid 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 harder for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
