It’s important to know when your air conditioning system needs repair. Not only will you stay comfortable, but it’s usually a lot easier—and less expensive—to fix a small problem rather than wait until it escalates into a catastrophic breakdown. While it may seem difficult to know when your air conditioning system needs repair, many times there are distinct signs that it’s time to call in a professional.

Here are five signs your air conditioner may need repair:

  • Unusual noises coming from the AC unit
  • Uneven temperatures in different rooms of your home
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Continuous cycling of the compressor
  • Unpleasant odors coming from the vents while running the AC system

Another way to avoid costly breakdowns is to schedule regular air conditioning maintenance. Our skilled technicians will inspect your system for signs of wear and tear, clean key components and service any parts that need to be fixed.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?

When it comes down to deciding if you should repair your old air conditioner or invest in air conditioning replacement, there are several key factors to consider. Here are the three biggest things to contemplate when making this crucial decision for your home.

  • Repair Costs: The bottom line is often a big factor when deciding whether to fix or swap out your AC unit. In general, making a small or occasional repair to a malfunctioning air conditioner is cheaper than purchasing a new one. However, if the repairs needed are extensive, your AC is frequently breaking down or your system has been in use for over a decade, it very well could be more efficient to invest in air conditioning installation.
  • Improved Efficiency: Upgrading to a modern air conditioner can result in significant improvements in its efficiency. These systems consume less energy and require lesser repairs, ultimately resulting in lower utility bills. If your current unit is outdated and no longer efficient, consider an upgrade.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Replacing your air conditioner can significantly improve the comfort levels of your home. Modern systems offer more consistent temperatures and better air circulation, making hot and humid days more bearable and ensuring year-round comfort for you and your family.

Great job by all. They were careful of the landscape replacing the A/C unit. Inside the heating system was replaced and the fit and finish was great. Explained the operation of everything. They came back two weeks later and checked out the operation of the systems plus installation. The tech was here over an hour checking out everything. New system is quiet. This is a company that care about its customer. We highly recommend A-1.
