- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates 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 simple procedure and require a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and produce some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will look for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, reducing the productivity and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system.
