The Most Common Reasons to Need AC Maintenance

Advice from HVAC Experts in Kitchener-Waterloo

The warm weather is almost here and soon enough you will be talking about getting your air conditioner up and running again. In a heat wave or during particularly humid days, having an AC unit which runs smoothly and reliably is essential. Especially if you have pets that are left in the house for long periods of time, a failing air conditioner can be a hazard as much as it is an inconvenience. This is why it is so important to have a plan in case you need fast repairs when something goes wrong.

Top Reasons Why Your Air Conditioner Could Stop Working

  • Dirty air filter: Monitoring the state of your air conditioner’s filter and knowing when to change it out is important to ensuring it functions efficiently for the longest period of time. Air conditioners that are forced to operate with dirty filters are not only more likely to fail when you need them most but can also have shorter lifespans overall. This can end up costing you far more money than a replacement filter. See the wide variety of filters for air conditioners, furnaces and humidifiers we offer.
  • Faulty wiring: Faulty wiring may not be the most expensive repair job when it comes to air conditioners, but it is complex and can be made worse if someone who is not qualified or properly trained tries to fix it themselves. This can also void the warranty. By investing in a suitable AC maintenance plan, you are guaranteeing yourself regular, skilled maintenance for your AC unit or heater, including wire repairs and troubleshooting.
  • Outside fan, compressor, frozen coils: If you are detecting weak air flow, sudden spikes in your energy bill, unpleasant odours around your AC unit or other suspicious signs that it may not be working as it should, give us a call. A standard air conditioner is designed to last roughly a decade and if you have reached that point, this may be one of the ways you detect that it needs some serious repairs. Broken fans, compressors and frozen coils are all key components of a unit, which if broken, will need to be attended to quickly.
  • Missing your maintenance plan appointment: If you want to get the most efficient, longest use out of your air conditioner, do not miss your maintenance plan appointment! These regular checkups are designed to detect problems before they occur, so you can avoid rushed, expensive repairs in the middle of summer.
