When to Schedule Air Conditioning Service

Spring and summer are on their way and the heat will come with them. Is your house ready to keep you cool when the temperature hits triple digits? If you aren’t exactly sure how to answer that question, then it may mean it is time to have a technician take a closer look at your system.

One of the best things you can do is schedule an air conditioning service that will help your AC do the best possible job. Here are some tips to help you figure out if you are due to call in the pros.

Your AC hasn’t gotten maintenance yet

We know you likely aren’t using your air conditioner just yet. However, this may mean that now is actually the perfect time to schedule maintenance for it.

Getting annual maintenance for your air conditioner pays off over the years. This service can help reduce efficiency loss, preventing up to a 5% loss each year. It can also help prevent up to 85% of the possible repair needs the system would develop otherwise. Of course, maintenance is going to help your AC perform at its best too.

As to the timing, it’s easier to get your ideal day and time for your maintenance appointment if you schedule early. This is because you won’t have to battle with other people in the area who are also trying to get a tune-up at the same time. Plus, when warm weather does roll around, you will already have an AC that is ready to perform at its best.

Schedule repairs as soon as your AC needs them

There is no way to guarantee that you’ll never need repairs for your air conditioner. That’s why it is best to know what the signs of trouble are so you can get an appointment for repairs as soon as they pop up. Here are some of the warning signs to watch for that will tell you that your AC needs expert service:

  • Concerning noises: If your air conditioner starts making new sounds that it never has before, then it is time to have it checked out by a technician. Noises that should warn you of trouble include rattling, hissing, screeching, and buzzing.
  • Weakened airflow: Your AC needs to produce a steady and strong flow of air throughout your house. If that airflow is weaker, then the air won’t be distributed the way it needs to be, negatively affecting your comfort. Make sure to check your filter and then call for expert assistance.
  • Leaking fluid: This isn’t normal in any way, unless the fluid is coming out of the condensate drain opening that is outside your home. A leaking AC may be one leaking refrigerant, has condensation overflowing its condensate pan, or even one that has a frozen evaporator coil.
  • Short cycling: The AC turns on and only runs for a few minutes before shutting off. This is a bad sign that your system needs repairs soon before it breaks down entirely.
