When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the motto that we use at Tri County Climate Control LLC, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Bend do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Tri County Climate Control LLC are here to support 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 dollars. Here are a number of the things that our pros have spent years practicing and sharpening, demonstrating why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior 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 potential to come loose and produce some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect 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 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 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 working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more often than it needs to, decreasing the productivity and potentially restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
