Signs That You Need Your AC Inspected

Air conditioning in Edmonton is essential for hot summer days. When the temperatures are soaring, it’s important to have a functional AC unit to keep your home cool to keep you and your family protected from overheating. 

When was the last time your air conditioner was professionally inspected? Keep your air conditioning running well with annual inspections so you don’t have to sweat later when it breaks down. The experts at Legacy Heating & Cooling can help you get your old air conditioner working like new or install a brand new unit that will bring you cool air for years to come.

In that way, it will be much easier to make an informed decision down the line as new home construction goes on.

Is Your Air Conditioner In Need Of A Tune-Up?

Climate is the key to determining which cooling and heating system you can use to reliably regulate your space’s temperature.

  1. Uneven temperatures throughout your home
    Just because you have an air conditioner doesn’t mean it’s doing its job. If your bedroom is freezing and you’re dripping sweat in the living room, it could mean your AC unit isn’t the right size for your home. Not only that, but your HVAC system could require a professional inspection. This will ensure it’s clean and can handle the airflow to properly regulate your home’s temperature.
  2. Your AC unit is running all the time
    If your air conditioner never gets a break, it’s going to break. If your AC is always on, even when it doesn’t need to be, she could be trying to tell you something. An expert cleaning to clear out all the dirt and debris is recommended – our team can help with that. It’s important to get your air conditioner inspected and serviced annually to avoid these potential problems.
  3. Money is disappearing
    If it’s costing more and more to run your air conditioner, significantly more than the same time last year, you need an inspection and maintenance appointment with the pros. Your HVAC system naturally reduces over time from normal use. You can expect a 5-10% drop in efficiency as it gets older but anything more extensive than that may require extensive repairs or an entirely new unit.
  4. You’re Spending A Lot On Repairs
    If you find yourself with a broken AC more than a working AC, it’s a good idea to get it inspected. If it’s a basic repair, like a battery or electrical work, it’s easy enough to justify a repair. Issues with coils, compressors, or something more, the cost of repairs might be less than installing a new unit altogether. Let us take a look and we’ll help you find the right solution for your needs and budget.
  5. Your Air Conditioner Is Really Old
    There isn’t a typical average lifespan for air conditioners. It depends on the model, the installation, and the maintenance throughout its life. But if you’re noticing any of the issues above, its age might be the common denominator causing the issues. On average, most air conditioners should be replaced every 10-15 years.

Do You Really Need Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Short answer – yes. Annual inspections and maintenance on your AC unit will provide a proactive approach to your HVAC system. Preventative maintenance keeps you aware of how things are working, potential issues, and the general health of your HVAC system. Prioritize an annual inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. This way you’re not going to get blindsided on a hot day when all you want to do is relax in the cool air.
