Air Conditioner Repair Services
Just as any other system in your house, your AC system has the potential to break down or have technical difficulties that require professional intervention and repairs. Some common ones to watch out for include:
Dirty air filter: air filters must be clean in order for clean, cool air to circulate through them and into your house
Refrigerant leak: AC units use a coolant to make the air it cycles out is cold, and if the coolant leaks, the unit will malfunction
Broken fuse: fuses and breakers keep the unit’s motor from dangerously overheating, so if the fuse or breaker is malfunctioning, it will most likely cause the motor to die
Evaporator coils: they absorb heat so that only cold air is sent back into the air, and they won’t work correctly if they become corroded
Condenser coils: if they aren’t cleaned out often enough, they will need to be professionally cleaned with a chemical cleaner
Strange smell: if the air coming out of your AC unit smells bad, there could be a variety of causes, such as bacteria buildup, nesting animals, leaking refrigerant, or other outside factors
While these are only a few common issues, PGA Inc. is trained and ready to fix any air conditioning issue that comes our way.
How to Take Better Care of Your AC Unit
While professional intervention is still necessary every so often, there are certainly ways you can perform regular maintenance to decrease the chances of needing any emergency repairs. Some ways you can maintain the longevity of your air conditioning system include:
- Change the air filters: if you know how to do this on your own, then you change the filters regularly so that your unit’s efficiency and indoor air quality are maximized. If you’re not sure how to do it or what kind to get, a PGA Inc. technician will be able to guide you through it.
- Clean the unit: a simple yet effective task, make sure the space around the outdoor unit stays clean
Keep it covered: during chillier months that your AC unit isn’t in use, the outside unit should remain covered so its protected from animals and the elements
- Adjust thermostat when you’re gone: when you’re out of the house for long periods of time, you should set the temperature higher so the unit doesn’t have to work as hard, decreasing your bills and increasing the longevity of the unit
How Often Should my Air Conditioner be Serviced?
While the efficiency and productivity of your unit will depend on several factors such as how well you take care of it, how old it is, and how large the space you have to cool is, getting your unit serviced by the professionals at PGA Inc. is still strongly recommended.
It’s best to have your AC serviced twice a year: once in the fall and once in the spring. In the fall, the technicians will ensure that the unit is ready and protected for upcoming cold weather, and in the spring, they will make sure your unit is ready to go for the hot summer months.
Investing in regular repairs will keep your costs down throughout the year. Catching a problem before it becomes serious or too costly to fix is always the better option. The longer you put off a repair, the more damaging it is to your AC system. At PGA Inc., we can do a full-service check to make sure everything is running smoothly. We are thoroughly trained to service all types of AC units and will make sure you are completely satisfied with our services every time.
