When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Brandon Heating and Plumbing, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Brandon do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Brandon Heating and Plumbing 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 a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and perfecting, demonstrating why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects 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 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 capability to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will look 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 common causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier 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 looked at consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
