Just about every expert will tell you that an air conditioner runs best when it is properly looked after. Ignoring one of the must needful pieces of equipment in your house is not the answer. Instead, setup a routine maintenance schedule and remember to keep it.
When air conditioning maintenance takes place often, you will see your AC run more tuned. You will notice your energy bill either go down or remain the same. When a home does not monitor their AC, a few underlying factors may go unnoticed. These factors would then turn into minor issues and then in some cases major issues.
PBN Responding Quickly Regarding Signs
PBN diligently trains its staff to pay close attention to future issues that may be brewing in an air conditioner. Air conditioners almost always give small signs of oncoming complications. Below are a few signs:
a. odd noises
b. loose ductwork
c. duct leakage
d. not cooling like it used to
Air Conditioners that have had a screw to fall off, will have a tendency to make noises. This may occur when an AC is older and there is a built-up amount of rust. With a very minor AC repair the screw can be placed back.
Or a new screw will be ordered and then placed. Most likely during this AC repair the experienced technician will check to see if there are over rusted screws about to fall out. He/she will be able to order each as needed.
Constant atmospheric pressure can cause ductwork to collapse. Plus there is a lot of lower pressure on the ducts. This type of lower pressure can cause the seams and walls of the ducts to collapse. An expert may suggest an entire duct replacement.
If the ductwork is leaking, then taping the duct may be an option. Using the wrong tape can make this procedure useless. The right tape has to be used, a metallic foil tape. Next the professional may apply duct mastic. This will be placed on top of the tape.
Dirty AC filters can be a real problem. They can heavily restrict cool air from flowing. This cool air reduction will be felt throughout the home. The AC will consistently try to force out the cool air, regardless.
Because of this hardship you may notice a hike in your AC bill. The energy and effort needed to push out the air has now doubled or tripled. Because of this, the energy bill of the household will be higher than usual.
If this issue is allowed to persist a a air conditioning repair will be needed. PBN staff are educated to spot the symptoms of an issue. In this case, the filters simply need to be changed. Some filters need to be changed every 3 months, while others every 6 months or yearly.
An air conditioner repair, in many cases is the result of a lack of maintenance. An air conditioning service can save a household money in many different ways. Repairs whether minor or major cost money. Energy bills can be lowered by keeping up making sure that all scheduled maintenance appointments are checked.
PBN invests money in building the best air conditioners. They are built in a way to last for years. One way that this is done is to ensure that issues are quickly foreseen. Noticing a problem early in an AC gives the homeowner the upper hand.
With a trained eye the staff will check every nook and cranny of the AC during their maintenance routine. There are some things that can not be seen with the bare eye. Some things can only be noticed by someone that is experienced. For example, an odd offensive smell coming from an AC should not be ignored.
It could be mold building up in the coils. A large buildup of mold and mildew could turn into a huge problem. Not just equipment wise, but for the health of the folks in the home. Smells should not be ignored. Or it could be that the filters are so filthy that they are now giving off a foul smell.
Trained, licensed staff knows that every sound, smell or difference in the energy bill should be looked at earnestly and soberly. Many AC problems start off small and insignificant, but then they grow and grow. Is it simple as a homeowner to be given tips to also look for warning signs? Yes, it is. You may not always be correct when it comes to the underlying problem, but practices makes perfect.
