When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the slogan that we use at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Monroe do not have the skills or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace are here to support with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to attempt a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save some money. Here are a couple of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and perfecting, proving why having an expert fix 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 outdoor coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and produce some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will search 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 jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier 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 looked at consistently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, reducing the productivity and potentially stunting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
