AC Service in Kingston, Brockville, Belleville, ON and Surrounding Areas
The AC unit in your home represents one of the largest appliance investments you will ever make. There are several ways that you can go about protecting that investment. Sooner or later, your AC will need to be serviced, aside from the monthly maintenance regimen.
Here are some key issues that should be addressed when it comes time for your AC service.
Cleaning the Coils
The coils of your AC system are where all the ‘magic’ takes place. The outdoor condenser coils and the indoor evaporator coils are responsible for transferring the unwanted heat and replacing that heat with cool, comfortable, conditioned air.
The coils can operate more efficiently if they are kept sparkling clean. Dirt, dust, and foreign debris can cause your unit to work harder and this only drives your energy bills higher. A good AC service will definitely include the cleaning of both sets of coils.
Refrigerant Level and Pressure Check
The manufacturer of your AC system has attached a data plate somewhere near the compressor of your unit. This data plate gives your service technician valuable information on the proper amount of refrigerant that is required for your AC to operate at peak performance.
During your AC service, your technician will ensure that your refrigerant levels are within specs, and there are no refrigerant leaks in your system.
