You made it through the summer, but your air conditioner could be in need of repair before you turn it off for the winter. Taking care of problems now ensures they won’t fester and grow over the cooler months and allows you to confidently turn on your A/C when you need it next spring. If you spot any of these common air conditioner problems this fall, it is time to give us a call:
3 Common Fall Air Conditioner Problems
1. Moisture: If the inside unit is wet or seems to be producing too much moisture, it is time to have it serviced. Moisture can lead to mold – which would then circulate through your home when the air conditioner is turned back on in the spring. A mildew smell, condensation or moisture are all signs you should call for repair now and not wait.
2. Your bills have gone up: You use the air conditioner more in summer, but if your bills have been creeping up, it likely needs some maintenance to operate at peak efficiency. If it has been more than a year since your last maintenance, it is time to give us a call.
3. Weird noises: If your air conditioner begins making odd noises or seems to be making more noise than it did in the past, a service visit is needed. Loud operation could be a sign of mechanical trouble and having the unit serviced now could prevent a costly repair later.
Whether you’re worried about energy efficiency, hear more noise than usual or suddenly smell mildew, having your air conditioner seen by a pro will give you peace of mind as we head into the colder months. You won’t need the air conditioner during this time, but anything wrong with the unit now will just get worse as time goes by.
