When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Goode Bros AC & Heating, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Longview do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Goode Bros AC & Heating are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to 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 learning and sharpening, demonstrating why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your indoor and exterior coils in your system. This can decrease 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 possibility to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will look for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar causes for obstructed 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 looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating 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 productivity and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
