I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years studying and refining, showing why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on on both your interior and outdoor coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will search for these connections and sidestep blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most conventional causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system.
