With the summer heat finally arriving, homeowners are counting on their AC systems to keep them cool and comfortable. Make sure you don’t suffer from a cooling system breakdown during the hottest months of the year by ignoring signs that you need air conditioner repair.
New Sounds or Smells
If you start to notice your cooling system is making strange noises or that there is a smell when it turns on, you should call for air conditioner repair. Properly operating units should be fairly quiet and produce no smell, so a change usually indicates there is a problem. Continuing to run the air conditioner without professional service could lead to an expensive breakdown.
Decreased Cooling Capacity
A properly operating AC unit will provide even cooling throughout the home. If the system can’t keep up with demand, or it there are areas of the home that are not being cooled at all, you definitely need to schedule air conditioner repair. This type of air conditioner problem will not work itself out and requires the attention of a knowledgeable and skilled technician.
Spike in Energy Bills
A sharp, unexplained increase in operating costs is a sure sign there is a problem with your unit. You should call for air conditioner repair as soon as possible and let an experienced technician diagnose the problem to help prevent a full-system breakdown.
One way to prevent emergency AC repair or breakdowns is to schedule annual maintenance. During this yearly appointment, a skilled technician will ensure everything is properly working, flag any small problems and ensure that the system is safe and reliable for the season ahead.
