You Might Need a Bit More Than a Tune-Up This Year!

ac-technicianIf you’ve already scheduled your air conditioning maintenance services this year, then great! Maintenance is key to ensuring the long and successful service life of your system! However, it’s been quite a long time since last summer, and all this sitting around means that your air conditioner might need a tad more than a tune-up… That’s right, we are talking about repairs.

There are a number of common springtime repairs that you may find your system needs, so below, we have outlined a few of them for you. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more! Oh, and of course, remember to call us when you need air conditioning services in Brandon, MS. 

Thermostat Troubles

Some potentially good news is that your air conditioner problem may not be an air conditioner problem at all, but rather an issue with the thermostat. If your thermostat can’t register temperatures in your home correctly for any reason, then your air conditioner cannot live up to the desired temperature you’ve set for it.

We are happy to help, but before reaching out to our team, go ahead and double-check your thermostat settings. It’s possible that you have it in fan-only mode unintentionally, or even that someone set the temperature incorrectly. In the absence of either of these issues, check your manual that came with the thermostat for some simple troubleshooting tips, and give us a call if you still need assistance.

Leaky Ductwork

Out of sight, out of mind, right? That’s how it is for your ductwork, but it shouldn’t be. Leaky air ducts are actually pretty serious and can cause a number of problems for your air conditioning performance, comfort, and energy bills.

You’ll be cooling your living space far less efficiently and less effectively if you’re trying to do it with breached or damaged ducts. This leaves you on the hook for higher utility bills and lower comfort levels.

Refrigerant Leaks

This is another important leak risk to be aware of, and it’s worse than a ductwork leak. A refrigerant leak will typically cause a decline in cooling output, you may see water surrounding your AC unit, ice on the evaporator coil, you’ll notice the sound of your system short-cycling, and/or you’ll hear a hissing sound coming from the system.

None of these occurrences should be ignored. Your air conditioner’s operation depends on the ability to remove heat from the air via the evaporation of refrigerant. If you suspect you do in fact have a leak, be sure to call our pros. We’ll accurately pinpoint where the leak is coming from, and repair it, ensuring the performance of your air conditioner.

Call in a Professional

If you find yourself dealing with any troubles with your air conditioner, it is always best to call in a professional for help. Trust us, only a certified HVAC pro has the tools, knowledge, and experience to handle the complex repair needs of your system, the first time around.
