When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Airmen HVAC Service, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Montoursville do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Airmen HVAC Service are here to assist with any service needs you may have.
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 couple of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and perfecting, demonstrating why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no walk in the park and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working 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 productivity and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the pros.
