Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years learning and sharpening, proving why having an expert 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 harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior 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 potential to come loose and produce some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians 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 conventional causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder 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 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 operating harder than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
