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 few of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and perfecting, proving why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up as time goes on on both your interior and outdoor coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal 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 possibility to come loose and cause some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will search 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 obstructed 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 tested consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more frequently than it needs to, lowering the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
