Beat the Heat this Summer—Schedule an AC Inspection Before It Breaks Down!
Summer is officially here—the days are longer and the temperatures are creeping up! Make sure your AC is up to the challenge of keeping your home cool and comfortable all summer long. If you notice your air conditioner displaying any of the following signs, it could be an indication that your cooling system is about to go and you should schedule an AC inspection immediately.
Loud Banging Noises
Air conditioners have a reputation of being loud and noisy, but the truth is high efficiency AC units are very quiet. If your system is making a lot of racket and is shaking as it runs, it could be an indicator that the compressor is malfunctioning. If the compressor goes, it’s often more economical to perform an AC replacement, so call for an AC inspection as soon as you notice your normally quiet air conditioner running louder.
Sometimes, an air conditioner breaker trips and must be reset before resuming whole-home cooling. If you find that you’re resetting the breaker often—daily or weekly—then you should call a certified professional to come and perform an AC inspection to ensure everything is working safely and efficiently. Malfunctioning electrical work could pose a safety hazard and indicate that the compressor is about to fail.
Increased Energy Bills
If you’re shocked when you open your hydro bill after running the air conditioner, the high bills may be a symptom of an old and inefficient AC. Units older than 10 years use significantly more power to run and can have a drastic effect on your monthly bills. Additionally, after 10 years, units become increasingly less reliable and are prone to breakdowns. A certified air conditioning professional can perform an AC inspection and offer cooling system recommendations that will keep you cool and fit your budget.
Make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long with an air conditioner that is running safely and efficiently. Don’t wait until your system completely malfunctions to contact a professional—schedule an AC inspection when you first notice a problem.
