Don’t Let Your Air Conditioner Leave You Hot Under The Collar!
Nothing is more frustrating than coming home after a long day at work on a hot summer’s day only to realize that your air conditioner does not respond to your desperate cooling attempts! We have all been there at some point in our life, right?
Thank goodness we live in a day and age where we don’t have to give up hope that our air conditioner has seen its last days. Yes, maintenance is an essential part of owning an AC. Still, should the unthinkable occur with a Plano air conditioner, you can rest assured that it is repairable and not just replaceable.
Air Conditioning Problems
During warm weather, the last thing you want is to struggle with an air conditioner especially coming home after a long day at work. But we don’t always realize we have an air conditioning problem until it is too late.
Here is a few tell-tale signs that might help you:
- Clogged or dirty air filter
- Fan failure or a weak airflow
- Capacitor or electrical failure
- Water leakage inside or outside the house
- Refrigerant leak
- Malfunctioning thermostat or frozen evaporator coil
- Making strange noises or smelling bad
- Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping
- Damaged Compressor
- A rise in electricity costs
Your Air Conditioner Needs Maintenance
Just like your car needs maintenance to run smoothly and ensure safety on the road, air conditioning systems require regular maintenance to run efficiently. When we neglect necessary maintenance on coils, fins and filters, there is a possibility that your AC will decline in performance and increase in energy usage.
Window Vs Room Air Conditioners
Window air conditioners are easy to install and relatively inexpensive. It will help if you have a power source and available window and are good to go.
- Simple to install
- You can easily move it
- It can be noisy
- It does take up window space
Room air conditioners work similarly to window ACs. Still, they are installed in an exterior wall hole due to their weight and sleeve installation and have a smaller coverage area.
- It is a long-term solution
- Efficient and space-saving
- Don’t take up window space
- Smaller coverage area
- Complicated first installation
The Right AC For You
You need to consider your budget and your home’s layout when buying or installing air conditioning. Looking at the cooling capacity of an AC, the following factors should be considered, such as the average room temperature and the height of the room. Always look at the energy efficiency of the AC unit; with the increase in power tariffs, you will only benefit financially in the long run.
Climate change is one of the greatest threats to global health; therefore, having an energy-efficient air conditioner might have a small impact but can make a big difference in our households.
So, it makes sense that we ensure efficient AC maintenance and repair where the need is to avoid high energy bills and replace it before it needs to be.
Breathe easy in your home and reduce high humidity at the same time. While you might not have known this, cooling your house can reduce the number of insects which prefer a warm climate – even mosquitos find your cooler body temperature less desirable. Overall you will complain less and live a cool, calm and happier life!
