When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the slogan that we use at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Arlington do not have the skills or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning 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 couple of the things that our pros have spent years learning and sharpening, proving why having a specialist handle 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 indoor and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor 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 problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to pull 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 ensures that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, lowering the productivity and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
