When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Carpentersville do not have the knowledge or desire to have the skills to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc 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 some money. Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and refining, proving why having a professional 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 external 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 possibility to come loose and cause some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 more difficult for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial 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 working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, lowering the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the pros.
