Get Your AC Unit Inspected Today

As the temperatures start rising in Texas, the last thing you want to do is turn on your air conditioning unit only to find it isn't working as you expected.

Whether your cooling unit is blowing warm air or making unusual noises, the sooner you get your AC unit inspected, the better. Generally, cooling systems operate relatively quietly, so sounds like rattling, clanking, and screeching could signal that it's time to contact an AC repair technician.

An Inspection Troubleshoots Strange Noises And Malfunctions

Ideally, completing a tune-up of your cooling unit before turning it on fulltime helps to prepare it for the rigors of the Texas heat.

Air conditioning units have multiple components that help to keep your home cool and comfortable, and a thorough inspection helps to troubleshoot any issues before the weather becomes overbearing.

When starting up your AC unit after sitting idle for months, it isn't unusual to hear a bit of squeaking that could indicate an issue with a worn belt.

Bubbling sounds could be more problematic, as they could mean you have a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant leaks are one of the most severe issues you can have that requires immediate attention.

Hissing noises could pinpoint that treated air is leaking out somewhere in your ductwork system. As a result, your HVAC system loses efficiency and increases your energy consumption and cooling costs.

During the inspection, the AC technician will check the exterior of your home to ensure there's no buildup of debris around or underneath your unit. Leaves, grass clippings, yard, and other objects can block air flow intakes, and lead to your unit freezing up.

Additionally, the technician may examine your ductwork to determine whether a significant amount of dust and other contaminants has collected, potentially affecting the quality of your indoor air.

If anyone in your household suffers from allergies or other respiratory-related health issues, the technician might recommend cleaning your ducts to remove as many irritants as possible from the ductwork in your residence.

Further, blocked vents prevent treated air from circulating in your home, which affects your overall comfort level.

Being Proactive Helps Minimize Emergency Calls

Having to make emergency service calls to fix your air conditioning unit is never ideal. You can avoid the need to make an emergency service call when you're already uncomfortable or worrying about the status of your existing cooling unit by being proactive. Proper upkeep and maintenance of your HVAC system keep your unit running at optimal levels.

By scheduling an inspection long before you need AC repair in Wylie helps to ensure that your HVAC system is prepared to serve you in the hot days ahead. Call Lyons Heating & Air to schedule your AC inspection today!
