While it’s still on the cooler side in some parts of the country and homeowners there are just now starting to schedule air conditioner maintenance, those of us here are already using our cooling systems on a pretty regular basis. That said, our cooling systems go through a lot, and as a result accumulate wear and tear faster than they would in other parts of the country, potentially requiring more repairs.
First off, to prevent the biggest and most sudden of repair needs, we encourage you to schedule maintenance at least once a year for your AC system. During this service, our professional will clean, inspect, and adjust your system to ensure its efficient performance. With or without maintenance, however, if your air conditioner makes sounds you don’t recognize, it’s time to call in a professional. So, what sounds exactly should you pay attention to?
