As the colorful leaves begin to fall, signs of autumn are emerging already. But native Arkansans know better than to be lulled into a false sense of security. And by "security," we mean the financial sort – the kind achieved when you finally turn off the A/C that last time.
While it may be short-lived, southerners love that sweet spot during the year – when the sweltering heat is over, but the chill hasn't set in for good. Unfortunately, we're not there yet, so you may find yourself in need of air conditioner repair.
Although we're confident you’ll be satisfied with the service DASH Heating & Cooling® provides, it's always wise to do your homework before hiring any company to perform work in your home or business.
We've compiled a list of methods normally used to find and fix problems. In fact, you should insist that any tech does the following:
- Make sure the unit contains the correct amount of refrigerant.
- Use a leak detector to determine if there are refrigerant leaks.
- If refrigerant must be removed, make sure it is captured – not illegally released into the air.
- In central systems, check for sealed duct leaks.
- Measure evaporator coil air flow.
- Make sure the system is set at the correct electrical control sequence, and that the heating and cooling systems cannot operate at the same time.
- Tighten and clean connections and inspect electrical terminals.
- Verify electrical components are not pitted and within manufacturer’s tolerance ratings.
- Oil motors, checking belts to be sure they're in good condition.
- Check the thermostat's accuracy.
