When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the motto that we use at GV Heating & Air, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Crystal and Twin Cities do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at GV Heating & Air 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 dollars. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years learning and refining, proving why having a specialist handle 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 exterior coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and cause some major harm 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 conventional causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult 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 checked regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and maybe even impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the professionals.
