The 5 Signs That Prove You Need An AC Repair
It can be hard to determine whether your AC unit really needs a repair or not. We’re sharing the 5 signs that prove you need an AC repair here.
Baby, it’s cold outside! – said no one ever in Dubai. It’s hot and toasty year round, which means there’s never a “down time” to let your air conditioner lapse into disrepair. You never want to lose your cool, so be sure to keep an eye out for the hot signs of when your machine may need major AC repair.
Got No Air? AC Repair!
Don’t get “burned!”
Probably the biggest sign that you need AC repair is – you guessed it – little to no air coming out of your conditioner.
Now it’s true that things get broiling in the midday summer, but a good air conditioner is built to withstand even the longest, hottest heat.
If you put your face near a vent and don’t feel the breeze, it’s time for a repair.
Age Isn’t Just Number
Did your air conditioner come with your house without a word from the previous owner of when it was installed? Or can you maybe not even remember how long it’s been since you bought the air conditioner or had a technician out for a full repair?
The governing body of energy and efficiency, Energy Star, recommends we replace our air conditioners every 10 years.
And they recommend you get it checked by a skilled AC repair technician more often than that. In fact, keeping your AC on a regular maintenance program can extend the life of the unit.
Look for Leaks
Even if your air conditioner is cooling properly (though not for long), it still may not be running as well as it should and could be costing you money.
If you notice leaks around the base of the unit or from any of the tubing going from or to the machine, call your trusted AC repair person right away.
When your air conditioner compressor goes bad, you’re going to hear noises, see leaks, and basically just strip your machine from being able to run at its best.
Don’t let it happen. Make it a point to do a walk around your unit every month or so and check the ground around it.
Shhh: Your Air Conditioner is Talking
Well, it would be nice if your air conditioner could say, “PSSST! Hey! I’m leaking! Something is wrong! Call the AC repair guy now!”
Alas, it can’t, but your air conditioner does indeed attempt to get your attention by various noises it makes.
Here’s a clue: You never want to hear your air conditioner make noise. Sure, some older units are louder than others, but the goal is whisper-soft cooling.
When you hear crinkling, clanking, buzzing, crackling, water movement noises, or anything else, it’s time to get your unit serviced.
Don’t Sweat It!
The time to think about AC repair is not when it’s 40 degrees in the shade.
Don’t let your family, employees, or pets wilt in the soaring Dubai heat. Prepare in advance and get an air conditioner checkup from us.
We are experts in this, and we probably already know and have worked on your exact make and model.
Which means we can give you some icy cool estimates on what you may need to repair and when. We’ll have you enjoying the cool in no time!
