When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Los Angeles do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years studying and perfecting, proving why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up as time goes on on both your internal and outdoor 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 need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and cause some major damage 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the experts.
