When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Oxford do not have the skills or desire to have the skills to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc are here to support 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 a few dollars. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and sharpening, proving why having a professional fix 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 interior and external 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 simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will search 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 familiar causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve 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 pros.
