When To Repair Your AC

We’re in that transition period in between winter and spring. Are you wondering if that heating problem that’s been gnawing at you for a while is worthy of a call to a professional? We’re here to help you come to a definitive yes or no today.

We understand that sometimes it can be hard to decide. There’s always the fear that ignoring an issue that’s right underneath your nose will erupt into a bigger problem in the future. We’d hate to see you go down this path. That’s why our experts in air conditioning in Bellevue, WA are ready to serve you as soon as possible.

What’s Going On

Let’s talk about what you’re experiencing and determine if you should call a professional:

1.      Short Cycling

Short cycling is one of the most common air conditioning issues. You’ll notice short cycling when your home’s air conditioner starts, runs for a short amount of time, stops, and then begins again. Short cycling might not seem like it’s a huge issue, but the problem is much more insidious than it seems. Short cycling is one of those issues that grows into a greater issue. Make sure that you’re not discounting this issue.

2.      Poor IAQ

Have you noticed poor indoor air quality in your home? Indoor air quality issues might look like itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, sniffles, or congestion. This isn’t something that you should sidestep because it’s bad news. Your air conditioner and your indoor air quality go together. You can’t have great quality in one without the other. We’re here to help your home’s indoor air quality.

3.      High AC Bills

Have you noticed that your home has high air conditioning bills?

If you notice this in the upcoming weeks or the next month, you should absolutely schedule an appointment with our team members. You shouldn’t notice high air conditioning bills this early on in the spring season. This is a clear sign that you’re overworking your system and that the system is out of shape. Your efficiency is slipping and we’re going to help you schedule an appointment to fix this.

4.      Low Output

Low output isn’t one of those things that you’ll notice at the source. Instead, low output is something you’re going to notice in the ways that it affects you the most. Low output might look like becoming best buddies with your thermostat because you always have to change the temperature, higher energy bills, and inadequate service. Don’t ignore this. Instead, contact a professional for the work you need.

5.      Foul Odors

Your air conditioner shouldn’t emit a scent. Any type of odor that you smell (especially if it smells moldy or musty) is a huge issue that you should pay attention to. You don’t want these problems to persist or grow into larger issues. We’re here to help you with the type of odor that you’re experiencing. We can figure out where it’s coming from and work quickly to fix this problem.
