In warm cities such as Houston, air conditioning units are necessary in the battle against the blistering heat. Frequent use, however, leaves these appliances more vulnerable to wear and tear. With this in mind, here are a few signs your unit needs to be examined by an air conditioning repair professional
Why is my AC so noisy?
Air conditioning units will make a few noises every now and then. However, it isn’t natural for these noises to be excessive or loud. If your air conditioner is making loud or excessive noises, turn off the unit to avoid further damage and call a repair service right away.
Why are my energy bills so high?
When there is a sudden spike in the energy bill, most people are quick to blame an inefficient unit and immediately make arrangements to purchase a replacement. However, be sure to call a repair service first before purchasing a new unit. Inefficient energy consumption can be a sign of clogged filters or low refrigerant levels, a fairly easy task for a professional.
Why isn’t it as cold as usual?
It doesn’t matter what the SEER rating of your unit was when you bought it; as the years go by, your unit will lose its efficiency. Call a professional if the temperature in your house is uneven or if the time it takes to reach the desired temperature is longer than it usually is.
