When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Plainfield do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc are here to assist with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and refining, demonstrating why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up as time goes on on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal 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 produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 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 looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies 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, lowering the productivity and maybe even 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 applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
