Signs You Need Professional AC Maintenance

  • Cooling

As temperatures rise outdoors, you’ll be turning down the thermostat inside. The heat can be problematic if your AC is broken or working inefficiently. You need to be able to stay cool and comfortable all summer long, and the best way to do that is with a little TLC beforehand. Professional maintenance will keep your equipment running efficiently while preventing major malfunctions in the future. If you are experiencing any of the following issues in your home, call Papalia today to schedule your professional tune-up.

Start-up Problems

This is an obvious sign that something is up with your air conditioning system. If you adjust the thermostat, your AC should reach the designated temperature with ease. It should power on to keep you and your family cool and safe during the warmer months. Your cooling system needs to be able to keep up with the rising temperatures outside, so it if doesn’t turn on at all or if it switches often, you should schedule a professional inspection.

Warm Air

An air conditioner should always be blowing cool air. If it’s blowing air that is warm or hot, then it’s clear that you have a problem. You may be low on refrigerant, in which case it can simply be refilled. If you have a leak, repairs can get a little trickier. A refrigerant leak may be harder to fix but should still be addressed immediately.

Poor Cooling

Your air conditioning system should be able to cool your entire home. Smaller models are meant to cool designated areas, but they should be able to do so with ease. If cooling isn’t consistent throughout, it’s a sign that your AC can’t handle cooling your entire house. A professional inspection will help to determine the cause of the problem.

Strange Noises

There’s no reason for your air conditioner to be making weird or loud sounds. If you start to hear any, call Papalia. It could mean that a piece has become detached in your system, or that foreign debris has found its way inside. It could also be a sign of a bigger problem such as motor failure. Depending on the extent of the repairs, you may want to invest in a new AC.

Spike in Utilities

If your electric bill suddenly skyrockets out of nowhere, it’s a major red flag that your cooling system is either broken or running inefficiently. In order to save on your utilities, you should have regular maintenance done by a professional.

Importance of Regular Maintenance

When it comes to preventing major malfunctions with your cooling system, routine maintenance is key. This is especially important in the summer when you rely on your air conditioner to keep your home cool, comfortable, and safe.

The Importance of Annual AC Tune-Ups

  • Cooling

When the summer heat is blazing, it’s likely that you hang out indoors with your air conditioner on. Because you rely so heavily on your AC to keep you cool and comfortable, don’t you think that it deserves a little love and care?

You should have your cooling system professionally inspected and tuned-up at least once a year. This is especially important before extended periods of use – like the hot summer months. Professional maintenance not only extends the lifespan of your equipment, it prevents costly repairs down the road. Other benefits of an AC tune-up include:

  • Energy efficiency. With any appliance or system working in your home, energy efficiency is extremely important. If your AC is sucking up too much electricity to function, it’s not working efficiently. This can cause your electric bill to skyrocket if it’s left to worsen. A tune-up will let a technician inspect the working condition of your cooling system and make sure that things are running smoothly.
  • Longer lifespan. Think of professional tune-ups as preventative maintenance. The full system check and repair allows an in depth inspection of all your systems features and working parts. A Papalia tech will be able to spot any problems or areas of wear and tear so you will be able to get the most out of your machine.
  • Cleaner air. Did you know that an old or outdated air conditioner can potentially harm your indoor air quality? Pollen, dust, pet dander, and other contaminates can build up in your system over time. When you turn on the AC, it can be released into your air supply and cause a variety of symptoms among those living in your home. Because our tune-ups are thorough, your air filter will be changed and any debris build up will be removed.
  • Reliability. Professional tune-ups make your system more reliable. Every nook, cranny, and working piece of your cooling system is checked and adjusted for maximum function. If any problem areas are discovered during the inspection, your tech will be able to advise you of the best way to fix it.

6 Benefits of Having Papalia Tune Up Your AC

  • Cooling

As winter turns to spring and spring turns to summer, New England homeowners will be swapping out their heaters for air conditioning. But will it be ready to tackle the summer heat? The people at Papalia Home Service know that it’s a good idea to give your AC a tune-up before the warm weather moves in to make sure you’ll be ready for summer. Here are six reasons you should give it some maintenance before the summer arrives.

Benefits of an Early AC Tune-Up

 

Lower electricity bills.

No matter where you live in New England, summer is going to be hot. It’s likely that you’ll want to be running your AC most of the time during the summer, but that can cause a steep increase in electrical bills. It can be even worse if your AC isn’t in peak condition. A system with clogged filters and failing parts will need to work harder to do the same work. A harder-working AC will also wear itself out quicker, reducing its overall lifespan. By tuning up your AC now, you’re increasing its efficiency and lowering your utility bills.

 

More comfort.

What would you call an AC that can’t keep you cool? A bad one. Summers can be tough even for modern systems. If you want to your AC running at a constant cool, you’ll want our professionals at Papalia to make sure your AC is running at top performance.

 

Fewer breakdowns.

If you use your AC system this summer, are you certain that it won’t fail to start up? Do you know for sure that it’ll run smoothly all season? If you’re not sure, give us a call! Our tune-ups come with a complete inspection that can identify problems before they cause an actual breakdown.

 

Cheaper repair bills.

In the event that your AC wind up needing repairs, they’ll likely be cheaper if you’ve gotten maintenance beforehand. The reason for that is because our maintenance addresses the more costly problems (like air flow issues and broken parts) during our inspections before they cause actual breakdowns. Our inspections are also cheaper than repair jobs, so get your AC checked when you can.

 

Extended AC lifespan.

If you want your AC system to stay operational for a long time, you’ll want to give it regular maintenance. By routinely checking on your AC and preventing breakdowns, we can help extend your AC’s lifespan by years. Without regular maintenance, the average AC only lasts a few years as it pushes itself too hard trying to provide cool air.

 

Better air quality.

During the colder months where you never use your AC, various bits of dust and grime build up in it. When you turn it on, all that nasty junk is going to go into the air, which can hurt your air quality and aggravate those summer allergies. When you call Papalia to give your AC a tune-up, we’ll clean it out, ensuring that your home’s air stays fresh in the summer.
