Summer is about to be in full swing. You’ll want to stay cool during this season of heatwaves. Because of this, you will also want to be sure that your AC system can keep up with the demand. Here are some benefits of getting an AC checkup done just in time for summer to really begin.
Airflow and Cooling Problems
Even though we haven’t seen the hottest days of summer yet, there is no doubt that temperatures are starting to climb. Airflow and cooling problems could leave you uncomfortable at best and miserable at worst. Don’t wait to get any service done – getting a jump on it now is for the best. You’ll thank yourself later, and your family will be grateful. Plus, an old or malfunctioning AC unit uses up more energy than it should, and that will put a hurting on your energy bills!
Weird Sounds and Smells
If you heard weird sounds and detect strange smells from your air conditioner, then that is also a bad sign. Clangs, taps, grating, or grinding let you know that something is wrong. It needs some repairs stat, and you might need to replace your AC unit if it is already too late. Follow your nose to find out what the smells are coming from – burned insulation and mold are the two common culprits to blame for this problem. This issue is a definite push to get repairs done, especially since it can affect the health of your family and pets.
The Thermostat is Acting Up
Most of the time, you probably set the thermostat to the temperature you want and then forget about it. Does your AC unit not turn on? It’s a sign of worse problems. The same principle applies if it only runs a little bit and then shuts off or the thermostat reports that everything is good when you know it isn’t.
