When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in York do not have the knowledge or desire to have the skills to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning 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 some money. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years learning and sharpening, demonstrating why having an expert handle your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can harm 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 damage to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will look for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar causes for blocked 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be tested regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, lowering the effectiveness and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to improve the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
