Many people don’t call in a technician for AC service until it’s too late. Catching problems early on keeps you from having to make emergency calls for AC service. It can save you a lot of money too, lowering both energy bills and repair costs if you catch the problem early enough.
But how can you tell if your air conditioner needs service?
It’s Performing Poorly (and the Air Filter Is Clean)
One of the first things you can check when an air conditioner starts struggling to cool your house efficiently is the air filter. A clogged air filter can do more damage than you think, stopping air from moving through the system with ease. You are less comfortable and, eventually, the air conditioner struggles to get temperatures down and becomes overworked.
If changing the filter doesn’t seem to help, call for service.
You Notice Subtle Signs of Damage
Whether or not the system has broken down completely, you should call a technician whenever you notice a problem with your air conditioner, big or small. A strange noise, for example, may seem like a tolerable issue. But it could indicate a problem within the system that is affecting efficiency and may soon cause the system to overwork.
The sooner you call for repairs, the better. It means that the problem won’t have a chance to develop into something worse that costs more to repair.
It’s Been a Year
If it has been a year (or more) since your last air conditioning service, it’s time to call in an expert. We recommend annual maintenance visits for all air conditioning systems, in order to prevent potential problems that may affect efficiency and performance.
Professionals can give your AC system a tune-up and cleaning that helps to keep everything in top shape. Your AC system can perform at peak levels for the summer, lowering the chances of a breakdown.
