Air Conditioning Maintenance & Service

Are you worried about your AC?

No problem, we're here to help!

If you’re noticing that your AC isn’t working as well as it used to, like if it isn’t heating or cooling properly or if the airflow feels restricted, it might be time for a tune-up. Another thing to watch out for is if there are any funky smells coming from your AC – that’s definitely a sign that something’s up.

Don’t worry though, if you catch these things early and get your AC serviced, you can avoid a total breakdown – and save yourself some cash in the long run.

We’ve seen that the most expensive AC repairs happen in units that haven’t been regularly maintained, so it’s worth taking care of your investment.

Let us help you keep your AC running at its best capacity.

Take a look at these 6 signs your air conditioner needs maintenance. If you notice any of these, give us a call and talk to one of our HVAC team members

Spike on your energy bills

This inefficiency can be caused by a variety of factors, including dirty filters, duct leaks, failing parts like motors and capacitors, insufficient refrigerant, lack of maintenance, an outdated system, and poor installation. To carry out their tasks, inefficient air conditioning systems require extended operation time, leading to higher energy consumption and elevated electric bills.

Leaking water

If your air conditioner is leaking inside your home, it could be due to a clogged condensate drain line. This line can become blocked with debris such as dirt, dust, or mould over time. When this happens, water is unable to escape and drain outside, leading to a backup and condensation returning inside your home. This can result in water leaks. It might be necessary to seek professional help to resolve this issue.

Weak airflow

There are various reasons why airflow may be weak in your system. It could be due to a clogged air filter, blocked vents, debris accumulation around the outdoor unit, leaking ducts, low refrigerant level, or fan issues. A clogged air filter prevents proper airflow, while blocked vents hinder air circulation. Debris buildup around the outdoor unit can obstruct airflow, and leaking ducts can significantly reduce airflow. Low refrigerant and fan problems can also impede airflow, as these components are responsible for pushing air through the system.

Underperforming AC system

The airflow system in your home plays a vital role in the proper functioning of your air conditioner. If any component of this system, such as the fan operation, ductwork, or motors, is not working correctly, your air conditioner's performance will be affected. This can lead to reduced efficiency and increased energy bills as the unit has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. Additionally, a clogged air filter can result in poor air quality in your home due to the accumulation of dust and debris.

Musty or mouldy smell

If you notice a musty odour when you switch on your AC unit, it's possible that mould and mildew have infiltrated your ductwork. Exposure to mould can lead to respiratory health problems, so it's important to contact an HVAC expert promptly. Mould and mildew thrive in moist, dark conditions and can rapidly spread throughout your residence. Therefore, it's crucial to address the problem immediately, as prolonged exposure to mould can trigger health issues such as asthma, coughing, sneezing, and allergies.

Icing up and freezing

If you're experiencing problems with your air conditioning unit freezing up, there are a few potential causes to consider. First, circulation issues such as bad air filters, duct leaks, or blockages can impede the airflow throughout your house, making it more likely that the unit will freeze. Additionally, blocked coils can be a problem; if dust accumulates on the evaporator coils, it can insulate them and encourage ice formation, preventing them from absorbing enough heat from the air and causing the temperature to drop. Make sure to keep your filters clean and address any circulation issues to prevent freezing.
