When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the slogan that we use at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Moline do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning are here to help 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 some money. Here are a few of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and perfecting, showing why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your interior and outdoor coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will inspect for these connections and stay clear from 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 more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees 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, lowering the effectiveness and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the experts.
