When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Genoa do not have the skills or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air are here to support with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and refining, showing why having a specialist take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your indoor and exterior 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 easy task and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier 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 regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
