When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Durable Service , especially if people come to us and describe how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Holdrege do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Durable Service are here to assist 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 dollars. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years learning and refining, showing why having an expert take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your interior and external coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal 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 capability to come loose and cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our experts 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult 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 checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
