Inc. are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years learning and perfecting, showing why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your interior and outdoor 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 need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our experts 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 conventional causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult 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 looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more often than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
