When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at Bon Air Service Company, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Grand Prairie do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Bon Air Service Company 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 some money. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years learning and sharpening, showing why having a professional take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your indoor and external coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor 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 capability to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 harder for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more often than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially 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 utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the professionals.
