When Should I Hire an A/C Repair Service?

Even if your home air conditioning system is working, you will still need an AC repair service to regularly maintain and keep up with small repairs as they arise. These small roadblocks may not cause your A/C unit to fully break down but may cause it to run suboptimally. An A/C unit that is in need of repair could:

  • Increase your home’s energy bill and cooling costs.
    • Nobody wants to open up their newest energy bill and see a sharp uptick in costs. These costs are accumulated when the A/C unit is running more frequently and more powerfully than normal.
  • Not circulate enough cold air.
    • In the summer, your house needs all the cool air it can get. However, if you notice that you are still scorching after your unit has been lowered, it could mean trouble until you get it inspected.
  • Emit strange noises as it is working.
    • When damaged, your A/C unit can emit a number of weird and seemingly invisible noises, such as:
      • Humming
      • Buzzing
      • General loudness
      • Rattling
      • Squealing
      • Hissing
      • Whistling
      • Clunking
      • Grinding
    • It is important to get your unit checked as soon as you hear any of these sounds, as a part might have come undone or something could be stuck.
  • Stop blowing cold air completely
    • During the summer, the absolute last thing that you need to experience is hot air or even no air at all circulating throughout your house.

If you are noticing these things, it is time to call an A/C repair service. Our team of professionals here at Stevenson’s Air Control has had over 30 years of experience in commercial and residential HVAC repair. We will notice and address these issues before they lead to costly repairs or full-on replacements in the future.

Why Are Small AC Repair Services Important?

There are a number of reasons that could cause your unit to need attention and repair sooner than this. Even something as simple as excess debris or dust in your unit can lead your system to a breakdown.
