The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Phoenix09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Phoenix do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc are here to support with any service needs you may have. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years learning and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your interior and external 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 simple procedure and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians 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 common causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the professionals.
