The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Humble09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the slogan that we use at Air Houston Mechanical LLC, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Humble do not have the knowledge or desire to have the skills to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians 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 attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years learning and refining, demonstrating why having a specialist take care of your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on 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 easy task and need 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 experts will search 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 bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts ensures 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, lowering the productivity and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
