The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Rapid City

When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the slogan that we use at Street Heating and Cooling, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Rapid City do not have the skills or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians 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 attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and sharpening, showing why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important:

  • Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up over time on both your internal 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
  • Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder 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 consistently.
  • Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures 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 potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance 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 professionals. Get ahold of the team at Street Heating and Cooling and discover all the services they can deliver to guarantee that your air conditioner is operating well this year.
