The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Peoria09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the motto that we use at Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Peoria do not have the knowledge or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC are here to help 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 number of the things that our professionals have spent years learning and perfecting, proving why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your interior and external coils in your system. This can hurt 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 capability to come loose and cause some major damage 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 conventional 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 vital 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 operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, lowering the productivity and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there 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 professionals.
