Finding An Emergency AC Specialist
There is nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to a too-hot room only to find out that your AC unit has blown. Even though it is not as dangerous as a furnace breakdown, you still need those cooling temperatures right away. If you do not have time to call for help and all you can think about is getting back to sleep, try these tips:
Look on search engines for any 24/7 HVAC services and take note of all their numbers (you might want to write them down). When the unthinkable happens again, this should make things easier on you. Call one of them immediately and explain your situation.
Afterwards, if they cannot provide service but know someone who can, ask them if they will vouch for the company. If not, call someone else on your list. It may be worth paying a few extra dollars to get an HVAC technician out right away instead of waiting hours or another day.
Checking Your AC Unit For Damages
While you might not be able to spot all types of problems with your AC, here are the main visible issues that you’ll want to keep an eye out for:
Leaks in Your AC System Leaks in your AC can come from many different places and they’re usually not easy to fix on your own. One common place where leaks might occur would be at a joint or connection. You can check one area by applying a soapy water mixture around the area. If you see bubbles forming around the joints then water is escaping.
Dirt on The Coils Clogged coils are another big issue when it comes to AC repair. This happens because of dirt building up over time as well as other debris like leaves, twigs, and even bugs getting caught in them. If these coils are not cleaned out they can affect how much cold air flows through your AC unit leading to resistance that causes it to work harder than usual which results in extra wear and tear on your AC system.
If you’ve had an issue with leaks, dirt build-up on coils, or any other type of visible damage to your AC unit then it’s time to call in some help. Stop by our website for more information about the services we offer as well as contact information.
The Benefits Of Hiring An AC Expert Than DIY
There are a number of reasons that it is better to hire an ac repair expert than to try and fix the AC yourself. First, you might do more damage than good on your own, which would require even more money spent. Second, the unit will get fixed faster using a professional, saving you time. Lastly, your unit will be fixed correctly on the first attempt without having to redo any work necessary by hiring an AC repair company.
Hiring an AC repair company has its benefits over trying to fix the AC yourself because they have all the tools necessary for fixing your cooling unit as well as knowledge on what needs to be done for starting up your system back up.
