When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the motto that we use at Stieferman Heating Company Inc, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Jefferson City do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to DIY their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Stieferman Heating Company Inc are here to help with any service needs you may have.
I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t hurt to take a shot at a little DIY air conditioner maintenance if you save a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years learning and refining, demonstrating why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up as time goes on on both your indoor 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 walk in the park and need a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our experts will search for these connections and stay clear from blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
- Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most common causes for jammed 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 vital to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, lowering the efficiency and possibly impeding the lifetime of your system.
