When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at Lycoming Heating Company, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Williamsport do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Lycoming Heating Company 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 professionals have spent years learning and perfecting, demonstrating why having a specialist take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:
- Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up as time goes on on both your interior and exterior 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 walk in the park and involve a bit of expertise.
- Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and cause some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals will search 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked frequently.
- Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running more frequently than it needs to, decreasing the effectiveness and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system.
There are a few steps that you can take in several places to improve the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
