With the scorching Virginia Beach heat and high humidity during the summer, cooling system crashes are bad news. To avoid unreasonably long AC repair wait times, call Climatemakers for the fastest service in town.
Do You Need Air Conditioning Repair?
It pays to keep a watchful eye on your AC during the dog days of summer. That’s when air conditioners are most likely to break down. Deviations from the norm can alert you to a potential system collapse. If you notice irregularities in AC performance, get help immediately. The sooner the situation is addressed, the better. If any of these warning signs pop up, turn off your air conditioner and call Climatemakers for troubleshooting help. Here’s what to watch for:
- The AC is making noises you’ve never heard.
- Cold air blowing through the vents smells foul.
- You have weak airflow.
- Puddles have appeared beneath the indoor unit.
- You’re getting warm or hot air instead of cold.
- The unit keeps turning on and off.
- You have high indoor humidity.
- Your thermostat is not accurate.
- The AC cooling coil is covered with ice.
Is It Time for a New Air Conditioning Installation?
When AC repair costs and monthly cooling bills get out of hand, a new air conditioning installation might make more sense than paying for another repair. Although an AC replacement can be an expensive proposition, it can also increase your property value and create more peace of mind for you and your family.
One of the biggest perks of an AC upgrade is how much you’ll save on utility bills. Even a basic central air conditioner with no bells or whistles will decrease your energy bills considerably. How much you save will depend on the energy efficiency of your new system. A unit with the minimum SEER will still be significantly more efficient than the unit you have now.
