I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years learning and refining, demonstrating why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your indoor and outdoor coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will look 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 pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be tested 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 frequently than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
