Here are a number 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 accumulates and piles up as time goes on on both your indoor 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, reducing the productivity and maybe even impeding the lifetime of your system.
