Modern climate control has completely revolutionized the way homeowners think about comfort and convenience. Most families now think of air conditioning as a necessity rather than a luxury. Unless they have extensive HVAC experience, homeowners really can’t do much work on air conditioning units themselves, though.
That’s where air conditioning technicians come in. Read on to find out about what to expect when working with Air Conditioning Services in Boise, Idaho to learn more about the valuable role that expert technicians play in installing, maintaining, and repairing modern A/C systems.
Some homeowners assume that the most affordable and effective way to cool their homes is to visit the nearest hardware store to pick up a window unit. In reality, window units are only designed to cool small spaces. They’re not as efficient as central air conditioning systems, they don’t last as long, and they’re difficult to repair, so any savings homeowners expect to see from taking this short-cut are typically outweighed by higher energy bills and more frequent replacements.
The best way for homeowners to cool their houses efficiently and affordably is to hire a professional to install a central air conditioning system. Not only are these systems designed and built to a higher standard, but they also come with advanced features like smart shift, sealed contacts, scroll compressors, compressor sound blankets, and crankcase heaters.
When installing a new air conditioning system or replacing an old one, make sure to work with licensed contractors. This will ensure that the system is installed according to its manufacturer’s specifications, maximizing efficiency and airflow. Homeowners can also expect to get all the help they need with sizing their units and making cost-efficient choices when they work with a professional technician.
Handy homeowners may be able to perform some of their own A/C maintenance tasks such as changing the air filters and cleaning up debris around the outdoor unit. These definitely do not replace a professional tune-up, though.
Most experts recommend that homeowners have their A/C systems professionally inspected and maintained at least once a year, ideally well before summer rolls around. Here’s what to expect during a professional tune-up:
If any problems arise during the maintenance visit, the technician should be able to suggest appropriate repairs. Working with a company that supplies common parts to its technicians means that some repairs can even be performed at the same visit.
The best way to avoid expensive repairs is to stick to a preventative maintenance schedule and catch them early. Not all homeowners are as conscientious about scheduling annual inspections and preventative maintenance visits, though.
Don’t wait until something goes catastrophically wrong. A professional technician should be able to get the unit back into working order. Here are a few of the most common signs that an A/C system needs repairs:
Homeowners who notice any of these common problems should schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Depending on the system’s age, its maintenance history, and the extent of the problem, it may be more cost-efficient to have it replaced. Either way, it’s best to get a professional opinion before investing in a new A/C system.
Central air conditioning systems are designed to provide maximum comfort throughout the whole home, even during the hottest days of summer. They can’t work efficiently if homeowners don’t have them regularly inspected, maintained, and repaired as needed, though.
