When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the motto that we use at Brogan Heating & AC Inc, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Rochester do not have the knowledge or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Brogan Heating & AC Inc are here to help 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 a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years learning and sharpening, showing why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects 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 interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and require 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 technicians 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 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more often than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the experts.
