Heating and air conditioning service

An air conditioner is a system used to provide cool and warm conditions depending on the outside temperature and the settings that have been made.AC Quick Check includes a visual inspection of air conditioner components by a professional technician. An outlet temperature analysis designed to determine cooling performance of the AC. Then the technician checks the system pressure readings. Then the technician made recommendations of correct diagnostic service to troubleshoot areas of concern. Refrigerant is the medium of transport in an AC. Its primary purpose is to remove heat from an enclosed area. If your refrigerant is low but not empty, you may just need a top off.

There are many types of air conditioners, the car air conditioner, the wall air conditioner, the central air conditioner, the portable system and the split system air conditioner. Most air conditioners have the following similar parts, the compressor, the condenser, the evaporator, the expansion valve and the drier or accumulator. These parts are interconnected using pipes and valves. Refrigerant is the fluid which is also highly volatile that transports heat from one component to another. The air conditioner basically starts working when you turn on the AC and the refrigerant goes to the compressor where it is compressed and absorbs heat and changes from liquid to gas. Then it goes to the condenser where it is cooled sometimes in some systems the condenser may be fitted with an electric fan. After being cooled and changing back to liquid the refrigerant moves to the evaporator where it is cooled further and then air is blown across it for it to become cool and this cool air is then blown into your environment. The refrigerant then absorbs the heat from the air blown and it reverts to a gas. The drier removes any impurities on the refrigerant using filters and desiccant to absorb any moisture. The expansion valve controls how cool the air you receive will be. Then the process takes place over and over until the room is cooled. This is also referred to as the refrigerative cycle. Before acquiring a unit you should check how energy efficient it is and for some of the appliances industries they offer free installation of your unit.

At some point the air conditioner may start having problems and you should get it repaired by a certified technician from a quality service company near you. They will first do an initial diagnosis before establishing what the problem is and then make recommendations. If you do regular maintenance then they will only be small repairs to do. However, without maintenance you may find yourself having to replace components of the AC system which are quite costly. Most companies have the components there and will easily replace any parts that need to be repaired. They also offer to retrofit your old refrigerant with the newer environmentally safe refrigerant.

The regular maintenance will prevent any future unexpected repairs especially in the middle of a hot or cold season.
