When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Air Houston Mechanical LLC, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Huffman do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Air Houston Mechanical LLC are here to help 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 dollars. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and sharpening, demonstrating why having an expert 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 exterior coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our experts 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 harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently.
- 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 running more frequently than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
