When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the motto that we use at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Mobile do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc are here to support 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 some money. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years learning and perfecting, showing why having a professional take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your interior and external coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search 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 common causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder 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 tested regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, decreasing the efficiency and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
