Business owners and homeowners who want to ensure their work and living environments are healthy and comfortable this summer should schedule AC repair in Austin as soon as possible. As the mercury in the thermometer rises a bit more every day, it’s clear that we won’t have to wait long before the extreme temperatures of the Austin arrive.
Do You Need AC Repair?
Whether you need the AC in your computer room tuned-up or the central air system in your home serviced, it’s helpful to know what the signs are that your AC needs some attention:
- The AC fails to cool properly. If your AC doesn’t cool the room temperature noticeably within 10 to 15 minutes, then it’s a sure sign it needs servicing.
- The AC makes unusual noises. Squeaking, clanging or ticking noises (rather than the usual low hum) indicate that one or more parts are worn, loose or broken.
- The appliance emits a strange odor. This is a particularly unpleasant problem that can be caused by electrical problems, mold and mildew growth, coolant problems and even a pest infestation.
- The appliance leaks water. This is a potentially hazardous and costly problem that’s relatively easy to solve, since it’s usually caused by a blocked condenser line. However, if the issue isn’t addressed in a timely manner, it can cause water damage and even electrical fires.
Even if your AC appears to be running smoothly, it’s advisable to have it serviced at least once a year. That way, it will continue to function efficiently, which will keep your utilities bills manageable, and it’s also more likely to last its full lifespan of 10 years.
