I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a few of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and refining, proving why having an expert take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up with time on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect for these connections and stay clear from blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
