That’s why our experts at ACS Inc 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 dollars. Here are a number of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and sharpening, showing why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your interior 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 simple procedure and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and cause some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will look for these connections and sidestep 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 harder 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 regularly. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
