When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Bossier City do not have the skills or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning 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 some money. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years learning and sharpening, proving why having an expert take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no simple procedure and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will inspect for these connections and avoid 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 more difficult for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working harder than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to improve the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts.
