Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years learning and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and cause some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct 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 more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and possibly impeding the lifetime of your system.
