The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Excelsior Springs09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Colvin's Inc, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Excelsior Springs do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Colvin's Inc are here to assist 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 some money. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and perfecting, demonstrating why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up over time on both your internal 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 capability to come loose and cause some major damage 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 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 important to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating harder than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and potentially stunting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
