Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior 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 create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will search for these connections and sidestep blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels. Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar causes for blocked 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 tested consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, reducing the productivity and maybe even stunting the lifetime of your system.
