When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the motto that we use at Winters Heating and Cooling, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Franklin do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Winters Heating and Cooling are here to assist 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 couple of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and refining, proving why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your interior 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 simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and cause some major damage 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 draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
