When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the slogan that we use at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Wharton do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating are here to support 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 a few dollars. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and sharpening, proving why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your internal and outdoor coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search 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 obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, lowering the productivity and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the pros.
