When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Clean Air HVAC, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Pacheco do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Clean Air HVAC 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 a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years studying and refining, demonstrating why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and require 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 experts will inspect for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, reducing the productivity and potentially stunting 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
