When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the motto that we use at Farris Heating & Air, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Bartlesville do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Farris Heating & Air are here to support 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 dollars. Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and sharpening, demonstrating why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on on both your internal and external 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 simple procedure and involve 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 experts will search for these connections and avoid 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 checked consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and possibly impeding 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 applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
