When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating , especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Laguna Niguel do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a couple of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and refining, proving why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on on both your interior 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 walk in the park and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts 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 conventional causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently.
- 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 often than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
