When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the saying that we use at JTech Mechanical, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Magnolia do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at JTech Mechanical are here to support with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and perfecting, showing why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your internal and outdoor 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 need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will look for these connections and sidestep blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, lowering the effectiveness and maybe even stunting 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 using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the professionals.
