Santa Maria Emergency Air Conditioner Repair
Most modern air conditioners are reliable and run for years without issue. However, they can quickly fall into disrepair without proper maintenance and stop working when you need them most. In most cases, it’s safe to wait to schedule an appointment, but sometimes, when indoor heat and humidity levels affect your health and wellbeing, you need immediate help.
So, which AC problems are considered worth emergency repair?
Poor or No Airflow
Depending on the temperature, poor airflow might not be a problem. But during a heatwave, your indoor climate can become dangerously hot quickly. If your air conditioner appears to be functioning normally, but you get weak or no airflow from the vents, it could be a dirty air filter or something more serious.
The air coming from your air conditioner should have a neutral smell, but many homeowners complain about musty odors. A strong odor is normal when you power on the air conditioner for the first time of the season, but you shouldn’t have a persistent foul smell.
Serious electrical issues like dimming or flickering lights or tripped breakers when your air conditioner runs can affect your home’s entire electrical system and put you at risk of an electrical fire. Electrical issues require the help of a trained professional and definitely aren’t DIY repairs.
If you experience any of these issues, don’t wait; call Jerry’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for 24 hour air conditioning service.
Why You Shouldn’t Put Off Air Conditioner Maintenance
If you’re like most homeowners, you have a never-ending list of household chores to get to. And sometimes, that list gets so long that you never get to certain tasks. However, air conditioner maintenance should be on the top of your list as summer draws near, and here’s why.
Prevent AC Failure
In most cases, air conditioners fail when people need them most — during the hottest days of the year when they push the system hard to keep cool. Routine maintenance allows you to find and repair minor issues that could cause your AC to fail during hot weather.
AC Maintenance Protects Your Warranty
Many people don’t know this, but your air conditioner warranty could be voided if you don’t keep up with routine maintenance. Most manufacturers’ warranties are only valid if you can prove you’ve kept the unit in good conditioner with maintenance by a trained professional.
Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Reliable
If your air conditioner is over 15 years old, it’s prone to breaking down more frequently than when it was new. While you’ll eventually have to replace it, routine maintenance ensures it will run reliably for the season when you need it.
We’re often asked how often you should have your air conditioner serviced, and we recommend at least once a year, but preferably twice — once in the fall and once in the spring. Call us today to schedule an AC tune-up.
