The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in West Columbia

When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in West Columbia do not have the knowledge or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our professionals at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. 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 couple of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and refining, demonstrating why having a professional 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 exterior coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your internal 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 possibility to come loose and cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our professionals 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 conventional causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it harder for your system to draw 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 appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is working 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 potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take throughout to increase the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
