When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc., especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Muskogee do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. 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 a few dollars. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and perfecting, proving why having an expert take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up with time on both your indoor and exterior coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no walk in the park and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and produce some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 bring 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 appropriate refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, decreasing the productivity 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 things that should be left to the pros.
