When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Hattiesburg do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning are here to assist 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 pros have spent years studying and sharpening, showing 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 over time on both your interior and exterior coils in your system. This can hurt 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 technicians 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 common causes for obstructed 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 checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating more frequently than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and possibly impeding the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
