Service

When in doubt, ask the expert. That’s the motto that we use at Kelley Mechanical, especially if people come to us and talk about how they are in uncharted territory with their heating and cooling equipment. Most people in Lexington do not have the proficiencies or desire to have the skills to self-service their air conditioner. That’s why our technicians at Kelley Mechanical 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 some money. Here are a couple of the things that our experts have spent years practicing and sharpening, demonstrating why having a professional fix 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 external 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 easy task and involve a bit of expertise.
  • Inspecting the electrical connections. Screws and connectors always have the capability to come loose and produce some major harm to the electric parts of your system. Our technicians will inspect for these connections and avoid blowing out your motors, compressors and control panels.
  • Checking the filter. Dirty filters are one of the most familiar causes for obstructed or inefficient airflow in your home, because they make it more difficult for your system to draw air through it. Indoor air quality is very crucial to the health and safety of your family and should be tested consistently.
  • Checking for proper refrigerant charge. Having proper refrigerant amounts guarantees that your system is running 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 possibly restricting the lifetime of your system.

There are a few steps that you can take throughout to improve the productivity of your heating and cooling system, like using a programmable thermostat, but there are also some fixes that should be left to the experts. Get ahold of the team at Kelley Mechanical and discover all the services they can provide to guarantee that your air conditioner is operating well this year.
