That’s why our technicians at Langford Cooling are here to assist 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 bucks. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and refining, demonstrating why having a professional take care of your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up with time on both your internal and exterior coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no walk in the park 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 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 familiar causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more often than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
