When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Middle Georgia do not have the skills or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia 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 number of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and sharpening, proving why having an expert handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects 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 internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major problems 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 conventional causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier 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 tested frequently.
- 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 running more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the efficiency and maybe even impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
