When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the slogan that we use at 1st Choice 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 Lake Forest do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. are here to help 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 number of the things that our experts have spent years studying and refining, demonstrating why having an expert fix 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 outdoor 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 potential to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 conventional 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be tested frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to increase 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 professionals.
