When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the motto that we use at Wallpe Heating & Cooling, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Greensburg do not have the skills or desire to have the skills to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Wallpe Heating & Cooling are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years studying and refining, proving why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up over time on both your indoor and exterior 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 walk in the park and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will inspect for these connections and avoid 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 draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked consistently.
- 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 working more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the professionals.
