How Do You Know When It’s Time For An AC Tune-Up

A failing AC system can make being indoors seriously miserable, and savvy homeowners understand that regular maintenance is essential for boosting comfort levels without sending utility costs skyrocketing. From changing out air filters to cleaning cooling coils, a skilled technician, like the ones at Del-Air, can do a great deal to extend the life of your system. Fortunately, your AC unit often gives warning signs that a tune-up or repair job is necessary. Here are three signs that you are in desperate need of AC service:

Low Air Flow

Is your air flow not as strong as usual? Clogged ducts and failing compressors are among the many factors leading to low airflow and impaired cooling. Because air duct issues can cause your compressor to burn out, it’s important to have this problem corrected ASAP.

Unusual Noises

Any new sounds, such as rattling, banging or hissing, are not good signs and should be addressed immediately. These and other noises can indicate that something has come loose in your system. Not only do loose parts impact the efficacy of your AC, reducing cooling power, but they can also cause fires to break out in your unit!

Strange Odors

Strange odors can be caused bywet filters or clogs in the system, particularly in the condensate drain line. If you notice a weird smell coming from your AC, like mold or mildew, don’t hesitate to call an AC tech. In rare cases, rodents and other animals can even become lodged in the AC ducts. If you smell decay, be sure to turn off your unit and avoid using it until further notice.

In that appointment, Raymond showed us areas in our air units that needed addressing. He took his time and made sure he made a thorough inspection of all the equipment. And what a nice gentleman.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
