The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Chadron09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the saying that we use at MPC Heating & Cooling, especially if people come to us and explain how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Chadron do not have the skills or desire to have the knowledge to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at MPC Heating & Cooling are here to help 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 number of the things that our professionals have spent years practicing and refining, showing why having an expert fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up as time goes on on both your internal and external coils in your system. This can hurt the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no easy task and need a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the possibility to come loose and cause some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will look 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 blocked or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very vital to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is operating 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 possibly impeding the lifetime of your system. There are a few steps that you can take here and there to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
