Why You Should Have an Air Conditioning Maintenance Plan
Having an air conditioner maintenance plan set up for your system protects it throughout the year and helps prevent emergency services from being needed. The summers in L.A. County get rather warm, and if your AC breaks down, you could turn your house into a sauna. Service All-Stars offers air conditioning maintenance packages to have us come out to your home twice a year to do a full inspection and ensure everything is running fine and smoothly. We’ll ensure you are also getting the most out of your system by checking the energy efficiency and air quality output. These services not only keep your air conditioner protected but you as well.
Getting regular air conditioner maintenance services also helps keep your system running longer, which prevents you from having to replace your AC unit before the recommended 10-15 year mark.
Signs You Need Air Conditioner Maintenance
Even after signing up for a maintenance plan for your air conditioner, there may come times when it begins to act up and not perform at its best. While we try to keep an eye out for these issues, they sometimes can happen unexpectedly. If you begin to notice these warning signs, you should reach out to our professional technicians for assistance. We will be right out to check on the issues and quickly get your AC unit back to working efficiently and effectively to keep you and your family comfortable all summer long.
Low Airflow: If you have begun to notice the airflow from your registered has weakened, this is a sign you should have some maintenance done to inspect the ductwork for holes or other damage or to see if something is blocking the airways. We will also check your filters to ensure they are doing their job, and there is no blockage.
Excessive Moisture: Given the temperature difference, there will always be some condensation on your unit, but if it begins dripping, then you may have an issue. You should call our team to run a maintenance check before it becomes a much larger problem leading to it not functioning at all. We’ll check for leaks as well.
Unusual Noises: Of course, some noise is business as usual for your unit, but if you start to hear squeaking, rattling, banging, or clanking, Service All-Stars should be your next call. We can inspect all working parts to ensure they are correctly connected and have the lubrication required so they don’t grind each other and create abnormal wear and tear, leading to replacement sooner than necessary.
Strange Smells: Your air conditioner shouldn’t create any noticeable smells. Should there be a smell when you hear the AC unit kick on, then reach out to the Service All-Stars to have us come check out the issue. Make sure you turn your air conditioner off when you start to get a whiff of burning or foul smells to prevent more damage.
Higher Monthly Bills: Although your bills will slightly go up in the spring and summer due to the usage of your air conditioner, they should start to become more level. If they do not, though, and your monthly energy bills just keep rising, this is a subtle hint, there may be something off with your unit. Give us a call to ensure it is running at its most efficient possible.
