That’s the saying that we use at Quality Refrigeration, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Baltimore do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Quality Refrigeration are here to help 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 number of the things that our pros have spent years studying and perfecting, proving why having an expert handle your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and require a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and create some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be working more frequently than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
