Have you been slacking on scheduling a tune up on your air conditioner? We get it, the last couple of years have not only been busy, but a lot of routine appointments have been put off or abandoned altogether. Here is your sign to get your air conditioner tuned up before we enter the sweltering summer months. Trust us, you’ll appreciate the cool air after a long day outside.
While most professionals recommend your air conditioning gets a tune up every spring before the hot season, there are other reasons to have your AC looked at as well.
Strange Noises Coming From Your Unit
Do you hear a hissing, whistle, buzzing, or loud bang coming from your air conditioning unit? This could be a sign of a blockage, blade damage, or even the motor dying out. Call a professional to see exactly what is causing that noise to be made.
Higher Utility Bills than Normal
Don’t quite remember your energy bill being that high last spring? As your air conditioning unit ages, it becomes less efficient at cooling your home. Regular maintenance can help make sure everything is running smoothly to increase the life of your unit.
Warm Air, Smell, or Weak Air Flow
Nothing is worse than an air conditioning unit that just won’t cool your home enough. If you are experiencing warm or room temperature air coming out of your vents, it could be a sign that your AC needs a tune up. If a strange or bad odor is also coming from your AC unit, you should call a professional for a tune up right away. This can be caused by an animal, faulty wiring, or a clog that is developing mold or mildew. A clog could also be the reason for an obstructed air flow coming from your air conditioner.
During the hottest heat wave of summer is not the time to realize that your air conditioning needs a tune up to keep you and your family comfortable. A regularly scheduled AC tune up in early spring can help your air conditioning unit stay efficient and healthy and help extend the life unit for long periods of time. Make sure the investment of your air conditioning unit is protected with regular tune ups.
