When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Paso Robles Heating and Air, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Paso Robles do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Paso Robles Heating and Air 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 a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years studying and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on on both your indoor and outdoor 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 need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce 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 familiar causes for jammed 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to improve the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the professionals.
