Is it sweltering in your home? Is your indoor air quality poor? Is your air conditioner on its last leg and in need of replacement? There are so many things that can happen to your Hooksett central AC that can prevent it from running at its full potential. Your air conditioner is designed to do more than just keep you cool in the summer. As it runs, your AC will pull the dirt out of your air through its filtration system and remove excess humidity, making you feel cooler and comfortable.
This is why our air conditioning service experts at Paul The Plumber offer reliable service. Our goal is to keep your unit working at its best or find the ideal replacement to ensure your family’s comfort and safety.

Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Routine preventative air conditioner maintenance is important because it stops problems before they start. During an AC tune-up, our AC contractors will perform certain tasks aimed at prolonging the life of your unit, restoring it to efficient service, and diagnosing potential complications in the future.
First, the technician will replace the air filter. Changing the filter frequently removes dust from the air you breathe and prevents grime from fouling the internal components of your air conditioner. Clean filters will also allow air to circulate around your home more freely.
During routine maintenance, a technician will also check the condition of your indoor and outdoor coils as they can become dirty and will fail to operate efficiently over time. After a quick cleaning, you may notice your AC performing better than it has in years.
Finally, the AC contractor will test the refrigerant levels and verify the thermostat functionality. Keeping refrigerant levels topped off will allow your AC to cool properly. Low refrigerant can cause coils to freeze over and your system will run longer since it can’t cool efficiently.
Signs You Need AC Repairs
If you have your system inspected on a routine basis, then you will already be aware of what issues can arise from your unit. Your technician will no doubt keep you informed of potential problems. However, if you haven’t had maintenance done in a while you may be overdue for a breakdown. Some signs that you need AC repair can include:
- Higher than usual utility bills caused by longer cooling cycles.
- Grinding or squeaking coming from worn belts or bearings.
- Low airflow resulting from plugged filters or faulty blower fans.
- Thermostat problems.
- Moisture or flooding from plugged condensate drains.
While you should always leave the air conditioning repair service to the pros, it’s still important to know when to call for help. As a Hooksett homeowner, being informed is the best way to prevent a major emergency or the premature need for an air conditioner replacement. If you think you are experiencing any of these issues, contact us at Paul The Plumber today.

How Can a New Unit Benefit Your Home?
Despite your best efforts, eventually, you will need an AC replacement. Your AC system is expected to last 10 to 15 years. After this period, it will become inefficient and expensive to maintain. At some point in the life of your unit, it will be more cost-effective to replace your air conditioner.
Furthermore, new technology exists that can save lots of money in operating costs called ductless mini-splits. Regardless of your choice, opting for an air conditioner replacement can offer tons of benefits including:
- Lower energy costs
- Stronger airflow
- More consistent temperatures
- Improved indoor air quality
