When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the slogan that we use at KDM Service Corporation, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Tuscaloosa do not have the skills or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at KDM Service Corporation are here to support with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to try to a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few dollars. Here are a number of the things that our professionals have spent years learning and refining, proving why having a professional fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your interior and external coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 conventional causes for blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be tested frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate 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 harder than it needs to, decreasing the efficiency and possibly impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve 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.
