Where would we be without the refreshing comfort of AC in our homes? It’s easy to take AC for granted. After all, most of the people who read this page have probably enjoyed cool air in their home for their entire lives. But like a reliable friend, everyone misses cold air when it’s gone, especially in the heat of a Texas summer.
There is a lot that can go wrong with your home’s AC system over its lifetime: the condensate drain line can sweat and overflow; refrigerant can start leaking; air ducts can be crushed, contaminated, or built too small to begin with; and your compressor can fail.
Instead of waiting until your AC system stops working, it’s always good to be aware of how well your system is functioning. Regular maintenance can prevent a lot of these problems from getting out of hand, or even happening in the first place.
Signs that Your Air Conditioning System Needs Service
Is cold air not blowing out of your air registers even though you set your thermostat to cool? Do you notice that some rooms in your home heat or cool slower than other rooms?
Do some rooms not cool at all? Have you noticed a spike in your energy bill? Water marks on your ceiling? Or maybe that your AC system has totally stopped running.
If you notice any of these signs, you should call our office and speak with a licensed AC professional as soon as possible. Every component of your AC system is connected, so one malfunctioning part could lead to further damage if it’s not addressed in time.
When Should You Replace your AC System?
After many years of brutal North Texas summers, parts of your existing system can wear out and cannot be repaired, despite all of your efforts to keep the units well maintained.
