Don’t DIY: AC Jobs to Leave to a Professional

family-footer

Many folks enjoy doing their own minor home and air conditioner maintenance jobs. Doing things yourself can reduce costs and save money, but only if you know what you are doing and have the time to do these jobs. Even if you are competent with DIY jobs, these three AC maintenance jobs are better left to the professionals in Highland Park, Texas.

Adding AC Refrigerant

AC refrigerant is the substance that allows the AC unit to cool the air. Low levels of refrigerant due to leaking cause your system to lose effectiveness and also causes health issues. Adding AC refrigerant is not as simple as filling up your gas tank. Call in the professionals who have the license to handle and transport AC refrigerant and the right tools for the job.

Cleaning Dirty Coils

Air handler’s coils exchange the warm air from your home with cooled air. For your AC to function effectively they need to be clean. It’s not as simple and quick as spraying them off with a hose, they are delicate and if you try and clean them on your own in a hurry, you can puncture them. Call in one of our pros who has the time and the right tools for the job.

Repairing an Electrical Issue

You may know how to do basic home electrical repairs like changing a light switch or installing a dimmer. Even if you’re pretty good at fixing electrical problems in your home, you shouldn’t try and fix the wiring or electrical components of your AC system.

If a simple circuit breaker reset doesn’t fix your AC electrical issue, it’s best to call in your HVAC technician. You may spend hours trying to figure out what is wrong and in the process end up damaging the fan blades, coils, or other parts if you try to fix it yourself. Your entire electrical connection can short out if you “fix” it incorrectly, resulting in having to replace the circuit board and motor, a costly mistake.

Save time and money by scheduling your AC tune-up with technicians at Willard Cooling, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical by calling us at 972-564-9785.
