When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Street Heating and Cooling, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Rapid City do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Street Heating and Cooling are here to support 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 some money. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years learning and refining, proving why having a professional take care of 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 internal and outdoor coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will look 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 jammed 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 important to the health and safety of your family and should be tested regularly.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, reducing the productivity and possibly stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
