Our Central AC Repair
Some AC problems are obvious, like not getting cold air, while in other cases, it’s not always easy to know when you should call a service expert for help.
However, familiarizing yourself with the following warning signs and calling for help could mean the difference between a minor repair and system replacement.
- Loud noises like squealing, banging, grinding, or buzzing come from the system during operation.
- The room temperature doesn’t match the reading on the thermostat.
- Sudden rise in your utility bills.
- Inconsistent temperatures throughout the house.
- Uncomfortable humidity levels.
These signs don’t always mean your air conditioner needs replacing, but if you don’t fix them quickly, they can escalate and cause the system to break down.
The Importance of Heating & Cooling Maintenance
You can indeed save money by putting off routine HVAC maintenance, but this could end up costing you big time in the future.
If you don’t think annual heating and cooling maintenance is essential, here are a few things to consider.
Maintenance Means Longer System Lifespan
The average cost to put in a new air conditioner or heater is between $3,400 and $7,500. When you spend that much on a necessary home appliance, it’s in your best interest to see that you squeeze out every dollar spent on it, and keeping it well-maintained helps you do that.
Maintenance Keeps It Running Efficiently
An HVAC system can lose up to 5% efficiency every year, and it gets worse as it nears the end of its lifespan.
Efficiency loss means higher energy bills, so hiring an HVAC contractor to tune up your system every year keeps your bills as low as possible.
It Protects Your Warranty
When you buy an HVAC system, it comes with a warranty from the manufacturer against defects and breakdowns.
However, if your system breaks down because you failed to keep it in good condition, the manufacturer probably won’t honor the warranty, and you’ll have to pay out of pocket for the repairs.
It Prevents Expensive Repairs
During maintenance, your HVAC service expert will find and fix minor issues before they worsen and cause the system to fail.
The bottom line is that getting annual HVAC maintenance and tune-ups will save you money, extend the system’s lifespan, and ensure it runs at peak performance year in and out.
