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 explain how they are in new 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 experts 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 bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and sharpening, proving why having a professional take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians 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 common causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and potentially stunting 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 problems that should be left to the experts.
