When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at H&C Heating and Cooling, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Laurel do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at H&C Heating and Cooling 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 a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our pros have spent years studying and sharpening, proving why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your interior and outdoor 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 simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and produce some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will look for these connections and sidestep 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 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 looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
