The Real Value of Professional Air Conditioner Service in Mankato area

When in doubt, ask the professional. That’s the saying that we use at Northern Comfort Inc, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in new territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Mankato area do not have the knowledge or desire to have the proficiencies to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Northern Comfort Inc 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 a few bucks. Here are a few of the things that our professionals have spent years studying and refining, demonstrating why having a professional take care of your heating and cooling system is so important:

  • Cleaning the coils. Dust and dirt accumulates and piles up over time on both your internal and exterior 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 walk in the park and need 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 professionals 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 more difficult for your system to bring air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be checked regularly.
  • Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having correct 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 often than it needs to, reducing the efficiency and potentially stunting the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take in several places to advance the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some problems that should be left to the professionals.
