The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Indian River County09/16/2015 When in doubt, ask the pro.

That’s why our technicians at Custom Air Systems Inc are here to support 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 a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our experts have spent years studying and refining, showing why having a specialist fix your heating and cooling system is so important: Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt collects and piles up with time on both your interior and external 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 easy task and need a bit of expertise. Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the potential to come loose and create some major damage to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians 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 conventional causes for jammed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier 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 tested consistently. Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having appropriate refrigerant amounts certifies that your system is operating as it should. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant means that your system will be operating 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 throughout to increase the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system, like applying a programmable thermostat, but there are also some things that should be left to the pros.
