Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your indoor and external coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no walk in the park and involve a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will search 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 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 checked regularly. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more often than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system.
