How Do You Know When You Need An Air Conditioning Repair?
There are a few things to look for as clues your air conditioning needs a repair. The first and probably most obvious one is the unit is blowing out warm air. First, check to see if your thermostat is at the desired temperature. If the AC continues to blow warm air, it might be time for a repair. In addition to blowing warm air, check to see if the airflow is light. If your unit isn’t blowing out enough air, this could mean a filter is clogged.
Another reason suspicion should arise about your AC is increased humidity or odd smells in the home. Part of your system’s job is to clean the air and moderate humidity levels. So if you’re experiencing that uncomfortable sticky feeling, it might be time for a repair, as well as smell. If you suspect an odor coming from your AC, give us a call. We can quickly solve your problem.

How To Choose The Best Contractor
There are a few different things a professional contractor should have/offer
- Experience and License
- Evaluation of the home
- References and referrals
Experience and License
Do not ever let a contractor work for you without a license. Your HVAC system is very expensive, and you don’t want someone who doesn’t have appropriate training to touch it. In addition to a license, you want a contractor with experience. Being in the business for a long time doesn’t necessarily make a contractor right. But it proves consistency in the industry.
Secondly, your contractor should ask to evaluate the home. Installing a unit is a process with lots of specifications. If your contractor doesn’t ask to see the house, this means they most likely won’t do a thorough or efficient job. There are lots of factors that are important when installing a system. For example, how many windows there are and which way they face. So it’s essential for a good contractor to do a home evaluation.
References and Referrals
It’s good to get multiple opinions on a company. If your contractor provides references, they trust that they have done well on past jobs. Call and ask around if jobs were finished on time and on budget. You can ask if the contractor followed up and made sure everything was okay.
Preventative Maintenance To Avoid An Air Conditioning Repair
Preventive maintenance is essential. It keeps your environment safe, saves you money, and keeps your unit running efficiently. Coolant or gas can leak from your system, compromising the surrounding air. Electrical shortages or frayed wires could also pose fire threats. By having your unit regularly maintained, these problems can be caught and fixed quickly. Not to mention if there is just a minor problem that can be fixed, and you let it get too bad, you’re going to end up losing money. So please maintain your unit for the best results from it.
