A good portion of our business comes from emergencies, this meaning customers call once their AC is already beyond salvation. There are some key things you can look for that may tip you off that your AC may be getting ready to quit on you. If you are able to catch onto these symptoms before hand, there is a good chance that you could be looking at a relatively inexpensive AC repair, versus a full on replacement of your unit.
The first thing to look for is excessive noise. AC units are designed to run quietly and efficiently. If you are beginning to notice your AC unit more, and is making noises that are not normal, it may be time to call in your local AC repairman.
Another key symptom of your AC needing repair is weakened airflow. If you notice that you have weaker than normal airflow, before you go jumping to conclusions, be sure to check to see if your air filter is not clogged. If you don’t change your air filter on a regular basis, you can expect to see weakened airflow. If you change your filter and see a dramatic improvement, great! That is probably where you issue resided. If you change your air filter though and nothing improves, you will want to give you AC repair man a call to get the issue fixed before it’s too late.
The last and most obvious sign that your AC unit may need a tune up is that the air coming from it isn’t cool. If your system is taking more time to get your home to the desired temperature, or is blowing out warm air when it should be blowing out cool air, you need to have it inspected and repaired immediately before you have an expensive replacement on your hands.
Your AC unit should be running without you even really noticing it is there. If you believe you may have an issue with your AC, feel free to contact us today to see how we can help get your AC back up and running efficiently.
