Why You Should Never Put Off Repairs

Even problems that appear to be minor can wreak havoc on your entire system, causing irreversible damage and costing you tons of money in repairs and replacements over time. By repairing your AC problems now, you can avoid a very costly, stressful, and uncomfortable situation come summertime when you need your system most.
How Do I Know If I Need An AC Repair?
If you haven’t run your AC in a while, it is a good idea to do a test run during spring to make sure your system is ready for summer.
Signs you need an AC repair include:
- A sudden spike in utility bills
- Frozen evaporator coils
- Water leaking from your outside unit
- Hot air instead of cold
- Insufficient airflow
- A ton of dust coming from air registers
- Frequent cycles
- High humidity levels inside your home
- The need to constantly adjust the thermostat
- Pockets of warm air
- Certain rooms not receiving cooled air
- Bad odors coming from air registers
- Banging, groaning, or rattling sounds coming from AC
- Malfunctioning thermostat
What Happens During an AC Maintenance Appointment?
During a maintenance appointment, your technician carefully examines every component of the AC, runs a full safety and performance test, tightens loose electrical components, replaces the air filter, cleans dirty components, makes necessary adjustments, and looks for areas of improvement. This allows you to have any issues repaired before they turn into major disasters.
