Air Conditioning Problems
How to Tell If You Need a Tune-Up or Repair
Your heating or air conditioning system in your Keller home is a major investment. Since it is the key factor providing comfort and safety for your family during the hot summer or cold winters in Texas, it is vital to keep it running smoothly all year long. Although some signs of AC maintenance are obvious, while others are not. Here are some ways you can tell if your system needs an air conditioning tune up.
No Cold Air
There could be any number of factors for not having cold air in your AC. The first place to check is your air filters. If you have not changed your air filters in a while, then it’s likely your system is frozen up, and air cannot circulate properly. Another possible reason for lack of cold air is that your coolant is low. Coolant can only be refilled by a certified professional in order to insure it’s done safely and correctly.
Air Circulation is Weak
If the air is not flowing properly in your duct system, first check the unit to see if it frozen up, in which case, thaw it out, change your air filters, and then turn it back on. Low air circulation could also mean that your air ducts are dirty or that they are blocked either internally or possibly an item lying on top of them. Check the air ducts in your attic to make sure they are completely open. If there is blockage somewhere in the unit, then it’s time to call a OC Services expert to get the problem fixed immediately.
A loud air conditioner can mean several things. For instance, if your system hasn’t undergone a check-up lately, then it’s possible that the fluids are running low and causing friction. You system’s fan could be running off balance. There could also be bad belts or other weak components causing the air conditioner to be loud when it is turned on.
Save Money with a Tune Up or Repair
The difference between a poorly running system and a healthy system is in the amount of money you’ll end up paying. An air conditioner that is running at peak performance will save you hundreds of dollars in needless repair. Routine maintenance and small part replacement from time to time will cost you far less than major repairs or total system replacement which can cost you thousands of dollars. You will also see a huge difference in your energy bill every month. If your system is performing smoothly every month, then your bill will be drastically reduced. You’ll experience numerous benefits.
This is why a regularly scheduled tune up with OC Services is important for your heater or air conditioner. A tune up will keep your entire unit in top condition and save you hundreds of dollars in the long run. A healthy, well-taken care of system lasts several years longer. When harsh weather hits you want a Keller HVAC you can depend on.
