Seriously, Avoid These 3 AC Repairs

Air conditioner repair is required a few times throughout the system’s 10-15 year lifespan. It’s bound to happen, and we want you to be ready for it. The problem is that some homeowners think that a repair or two every year is normal when it’s not.

How many problems do you deal with on a yearly basis with your air conditioner? One? Two? Are you constantly calling us for repairs and groaning every time your AC makes a noise? Well, pay attention, because we’re going to talk about the three most common and obnoxious repairs to deal with. These are demonstrable differences that can be seen in an air conditioner that’s cared for and one that’s neglected, so let’s try and turn your system into the former—not the latter.

Give our blog a read and call us if you think you need AC repair in Holly Springs, NC.

3 Problems, 3 Solutions

What kind of HVAC professionals would we be if we didn’t offer solutions to the air conditioner problems you’re facing? While it’s true that our blog is centered more on awareness than actual repairs (since we can’t really repair your system from behind our computers), we can still offer some homeowner solutions that make a big difference. Let’s take a look.

Short-Cycling

Short-cycling can be caused by a number of problems, but it’s a problem on its own and needs to be dealt with. If you’re dealing with a refrigerant leak or an incorrectly sized air conditioner, then you’re better off letting us fix the problem for you. However, sometimes short-cycling can be caused by a dirty air filter that hasn’t been replaced. Let’s be honest, how long has it been since you replaced your air filter? If you find yourself looking through your photo albums trying to find the last time you paid this much attention to an air filter, then you’re probably due for an air filter change. This can make a huge difference, and it’s meant to be completed by homeowners! Just make sure you call us if you have any questions.

Strange Noises

Noises are usually a good sign that there’s something wrong with your air conditioner. Just remember this handy tip if you take anything away from this blog post—silence is good, noises are bad. Just make sure you include the gentle sound of fresh air moving through your vents in the silence category.

Basically, if you notice any noises with your air conditioner that make you uncomfortable, you’re going to need to call us for repairs. Well, what are you waiting for?

High Energy Bills

Is your air conditioner struggling with efficiency? If your energy bills are through the rough and you don’t know why, then this is probably the case. While sure, there might not be a repair that can fix that, scheduling yearly maintenance can often do the trick. Maintenance involves many minor changes and repairs that can overall increase efficiency levels dramatically. Don’t leave your system hanging, call us today!
