When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Anderson Heating & A/C, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Carson City do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C are here to assist 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 learning and refining, showing why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up as time goes on on both your indoor and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior 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 produce some major harm 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 conventional 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 tested 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 working 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 efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
