When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Circleville do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc are here to support 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 professionals have spent years practicing and perfecting, demonstrating why having an expert 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 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 technicians will search 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more often than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and potentially restricting 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 pros.
