3 Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

admin By admin July 29, 2021

It is the middle of summer and this means that we are seeing the highest temperature of the year. The only things keeping everyone cool are the air conditioning units within our homes. The worst feeling in the world is when those lifesavers stop functioning or won’t work in July or August. Beat the heat and the possibility of your air conditioning unit breaking down on you by taking preventative actions to replace the unit ahead of time if need be. Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your air conditioning unit:

1. Your Air Conditioning System is Old

If it’s been about 10-15 years since your air conditioning unit has been replaced, it might be time to consider a replacement. If you have been keeping up with maintenance for your system, it could last up to 20 years. But it is a good idea to keep getting your air conditioning unit checked out by experts such as those at Serge Tech Mechanical.

2. Lack of Cool Air

Lack of cool air is an even bigger issue than the age of your air conditioning system. It might even be a more identifiable sign. If you turn it on and the air doesn’t come out cold within a few minutes, it’s probably not performing properly. This problem could be a result of clogs in the ductwork which can restrict airflow. It’s the most obvious sign that there’s a problem to be solved. You can get this problem checked out by experts at Serge Tech Mechanical, who can help you stay cool this summer and warm in the winter.

3. An Increase in Energy Costs

If the cost of running your air conditioning is going up, your air conditioning system is probably getting older and hence is not as efficient. This might be a sign to get it checked out to see what you can do to lower your costs and increase your energy efficiency.
