Signs You Need AC Repair
If you are in need of central AC repair, you may be tempted to try the repairs for yourself. We do not recommend doing even basic air conditioning repair because you can easily break your air conditioner further. So how do you know when a repair is needed? Some common signs include:
- Higher than usual energy costs
- Little to no airflow
- Fluctuating temperatures
- Poor indoor air quality
- Excess dust
- Moisture buildup around your unit
- No cool air
Leaving all repairs to the professionals at Paul The Plumber will ensure that your AC unit is getting the care that it needs. We always start each project by completing a thorough inspection. Not only does this allow us to locate the problem, but it also helps get a baseline of your system. In some cases, even an air conditioner repair may not be the best solution for your home.
The Air Conditioning Replacement Process
While repairs are always going to be your first choice when it comes to your air conditioning system, in some cases, an upgrade offers a better solution. For starters, if your air conditioner is already towards the end of its lifespan, 12 years or older, repairs are only a temporary fix. The same can be said for a unit that’s constantly in need of repair. At some point, those repair costs can easily be the cost of a new unit.
Similarly, if your air conditioner is undersized for your home, struggling to cool, or increasing your energy costs, it may be time to consider a replacement. The price of an AC replacement can vary depending on the complexity of the job and the size of the system. Paul The Plumber AC technicians always get the price of the work approved by you before we begin so that there are no surprise air conditioning installation fees. We are experts in installation for central AC systems and can even offer you financing options.
