The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Wheeling

When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Local HVAC Repair & Service , especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Wheeling do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Local HVAC Repair & Service 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 a few dollars. Here are a number of the things that our professionals have spent years studying and sharpening, 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 decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor 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 cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will look for these connections and sidestep 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 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 regularly.
  • Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts ensures 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 stunting the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the experts.
