When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Des Moines do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling 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 some money. Here are a number of the things that our pros 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 interior and exterior coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal 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 capability to come loose and create some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 conventional causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, decreasing the efficiency and maybe even 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 professionals.
