Nothing in your home is more important than your air conditioner. Without this equipment, your unit may become uninhabitable during the hottest months of the year. Homes that lack this technology can actually have temperatures that are higher in the living space than the temperatures outdoors. To keep your system running efficiently and working exactly as it should, we at Bock Air Conditioning would like to share three signs that you need air conditioning repair service.
We believe that it is important for homeowners to pay careful attention to their energy bills. Dramatic increases in the costs of cooling or heating your home likely mean that there’s a problem with your HVAC system. If it costs far more this year to keep your living environment at a comfortable temperature than it did in years passed, schedule a total system inspection.
Leaking is an obvious sign of trouble. Not only does this issue mean that your unit is no longer working efficiently, but it can also create a tremendous amount of property damage. Slow, hidden leaks around this important appliance can ruin flooring, sub-floors, baseboards, and other building elements. Routine maintenance and regular inspections can keep this problem at bay. These visits will give a qualified technician the opportunity to identify and address troubles such as a frozen evaporator coil or a clogged condensate drain.
If your system is nearing the end of its lifespan, you should probably have more frequent maintenance and inspections. Older units need more care than newer ones. They are also markedly less efficient. A trusted repair person can tell you whether or not it is more cost-effective to repair minor issues with an older unit, or to simply have the equipment replaced.
We always advise consumers against waiting until they absolutely need their home heating and cooling equipment before having it inspected. Regular maintenance and care will ensure that these essential technologies are always available. At Bock, we’re committed to helping our clients stay comfortable and safe through superior HVAC services.
