If your AC is running smoothly, you may not think about it often. However, when something is going on with it, you may find that it is on your mind a lot! Whether you are thinking about it or not, there are times when you really should have a technician come out. Sometimes it's obvious that you need assistance from a tech, and other times it may not be obvious but it is still important. Here are some of the reasons why you may want to call an AC technician out.
You want opinions on a new AC system
If you are thinking of replacing your current air conditioning system, then you might want to have a technician come out so you can ask them questions about which way you should go. You may want to stick with the same type of system, but you might feel your current one is a bit too small or too large and want to see if they would suggest a different size this time around. Or, you may be thinking of going with a whole other type of system and you will want to see what their professional opinion would be. You may also want to see if they have any suggestions on which models you should consider and what features to look for.
You want to have your AC system serviced
You should have a technician come out once a year to service your air conditioning system. You'll want to have this done before you use it because you will want to know that any problems it may have that need repairing have been taken care of prior to you turning it on for the season. This is a good way to avoid making things worse, which can leave you without the system for a bit and cost you more because you might have to pay for additional damages.
You hear, smell, see, or feel something different
If you hear, smell, see, or feel something going on with your air conditioning system that is different, you want someone to check it out right away. You may hear a new noise that was never there before. Or, you could smell something like smoke or the smell of burning rubber or plastic. You might see water coming from the system. You might notice that certain rooms aren't cooling down how they should. Or, the system may not be achieving the level of coolness it once did. Any of these things should warrant an appointment with a technician.
