Folks who enjoy doing do it yourself (DIY) projects have the ability to
save a great deal of money over the years by reducing home repair and
maintenance costs. But, too often, an air conditioning repair in Orlando
goes awry because a DIY enthusiast attempted it.
Filter changes and other minor maintenance and repair functions are fine
for a DIY person. But dealing with the refrigerant in your system or the
wiring are repairs that a professional like a service technician from
Del-Air, Florida’s number one air conditioning company, should handle.
Air Conditioning Repair Orlando
The only time a home air conditioning system needs a charge of refrigerant
is if there is a leak in the system. Refrigerant does not just disappear
or evaporate. Even a tiny leak can cause the system to lose enough refrigerant
to make it operate improperly. Recharging the system without fixing the
leak is like putting air in a car tire with a slow leak. You will have
to do it repeatedly. Finding a leak often requires special tools and expertise
that your Del-Air technician has.
Also, overfilling your system with refrigerant will make it operate just
as if there is not enough refrigerant. Continuous operation with improper
levels of refrigerant can cause great harm to your AC compressor. This
is why hiring a professional to repair your AC is better than DIY.
Electrical connections to your air conditioning system often use high voltage
electric currents. Many governments with jurisdiction over construction
require that a licensed electrician makes these connections. Usually,
this is to protect your home from a fire caused by an incorrectly wired
air conditioning unit. Not only is a DIY person subject to a fine for
doing the job on his own, he will have to have it done by a licensed individual
after the fact. Also, in the event of a fire from the incorrectly wired
system, insurance companies may balk at making payment.
