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 few of the things that our pros have spent years learning and refining, showing why having a professional 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 internal 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will search for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly.
- 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 operating harder than it needs to, lowering the effectiveness and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.
