Maintaining Your Air Conditioning System
Due to the important role that your air conditioning plays in your home, it’s paramount to keep your home’s HVAC system in good shape. As a result, regularly conducting proper checks and fixing smaller issues before they turn into larger ones down the road can certainly serve you well in terms of both time and money. At Breckinridge HVAC, our experienced staff can help you learn about maintaining your air conditioning system so that your household stays regulated throughout the year.
Before even needing to make any type of repair to your household HVAC, maintaining your air conditioning system should continue to play a role in your annual routine. Not only can staying on top of its condition help prolong its life and reliability, but it can also help those who suffer from seasonal allergies. Cleaning your system and changing your air filter can noticeably reduce the allergens inside your home and make it a more comfortable place to live.
Along the lines of maintaining your air conditioning system, there are also other steps you can take on your own in order to ensure that it’s performing in the best possible way. Keeping the sun out by closing the blinds and windows can reduce the amount of heat inside your residence. As a result, your unit will not have to work as hard to do its job. Using ceiling fans to increase the airflow and not switching the temperature too often or drastically are other things you can do prior to needing extra assistance.
However, in some cases, you may find that maintaining your air conditioning system is not enough and other repairs are needed. If you have noticed that the unit will not turn on, there is a humming noise, or it is blowing warm air rather than cold, you will likely need to seek professional help in order to properly diagnose the problem. Water around the base and loud noises are other common issues that we frequently see in our line of work. Fortunately, the experts at Breckinridge HVAC are well-versed when it comes to remedying any problems that may arise and we are only a phone call away.
In other instances, you may instead determine that you need to replace your entire AC unit. This will likely be the case if the repairs you would need to do on your older one would cost more than a third of the replacement itself. Costly repairs are often a sign that the system is failing, so putting money into it may prove to be a bad investment down the road. Other signs that you might need a new air conditioner are age and uneven temperature. Maintaining your air conditioning system is important, but if your HVAC system is more than ten years old, integrating a new one may be your best option.
