The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Colorado Springs09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration, especially if people come to us and describe how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Colorado Springs do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration 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 a few bucks. Here are a number of the things that our professionals have spent years learning and perfecting, showing why having a specialist handle your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up with time on both your interior and external coils in your system. This can decrease the efficiency of your system and could even cause your interior 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 create some major damage 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 harder for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is running as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be running harder than it needs to, reducing the effectiveness and maybe even restricting the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to advance the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like utilizing a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the pros.
