Your air conditioning system is meant to keep your home cool and comfortable as you prepare yourself for summer weather. To ensure that it runs smoothly when you need it to, it should be properly equipped and maintained by a trusted AC troubleshooting system technician who can identify and address any minor issues that may otherwise affect its performance.
If you’re not sure whether you should schedule an AC tune-up this spring, here our team at Air Products & Services shares some of the telltale signs for which you need to be on the lookout.
Higher monthly energy bills. As you use your air conditioner throughout the season, it’s expected that your utility bills will be a bit higher than you’re used to. However, if they seem to be higher than they should, this could be caused by a faulty component in your system that’s affecting its efficiency. It could also be due to the fact that it wasn’t properly cleaned or maintained: as your system pumps more air through a dirty air filter, it consumes more energy in the process. Either way, you should schedule an AC tune-up just in case.
Weak airflow. There’s a chance that your thermostat might be on the wrong setting, but if this isn’t the case, weak airflow could be caused by a dirty air filter. However, if you’re sure that you’ve had it cleaned or replaced every few months, other factors could be at play. This includes leaky air ducts or even a faulty fan motor, in which case it should be checked more thoroughly by a professional air conditioning replacement technician.
Odd sounds and noises. If you’ve had your AC system for several years, you should be familiar with how it sounds when it’s running. Unusual sounds coming from your system are an indication that you should call in a technician for a tune-up. Failure to address this will make your AC system’s performance worsen over time, and you may end up paying for a premature replacement.
