The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in the Rio Grande Valley

September 16, 2015

When in doubt, ask the pro. That’s the motto that we use at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C., especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in unfamiliar territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in the Rio Grande Valley do not have the skills or desire to have the skills to personally fix their air conditioner. That’s why our experts at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. 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 pros have spent years studying and perfecting, proving why having a professional handle your heating and cooling system is so important:

  • Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt gathers and piles up over time on both your internal and exterior coils in your system. This can harm the efficiency of your system and could even cause your indoor coil to freeze. Cleaning these are no walk in the park and require a bit of expertise.
  • Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and cause some major problems to the electric parts of your system. Our experts 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 obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it trickier for your system to pull air through it. Indoor air quality is very important to the health and safety of your family and should be looked at regularly.
  • 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 operating more frequently than it needs to, reducing the productivity and potentially impeding the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve 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 professionals.
