When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at B&D Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Safford do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at B&D Air Conditioning are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years studying and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your internal and exterior coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will look for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common 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 crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts ensures 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 efficiency and possibly impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
