When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Bell Air Conditioning Inc., especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Belton do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Bell Air Conditioning Inc. are here to support 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 some money. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years learning and perfecting, showing why having an expert handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up over time on both your interior and outdoor 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 walk in the park and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will inspect 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 more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper 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 more frequently than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
