Gagne Heating and Air technicians provide timely, courteous and cost-effective central air conditioning service for Marietta, Alpharetta, Buckhead and other metro-Atlanta communities
There are scores of reasons why central air conditioning is the most commonly used cooling system today - filtering pollutants and allergens, lowering energy bills, operating quietly and evenly distributed cooling are just a few. They also typically require less maintenance and upkeep than other cooling systems.
Occasionally though, every central air unit needs a little TLC in order to function properly, especially in the sweltering Georgia summers.
Central Air Repair – When you May Need Emergency Service
There are times when a central air conditioning system suddenly stops working. More often than not, a unit exhibits warning signs before it breaks down completely though.
Learning how to watch and listen for the following signs, as well as knowing what they mean, can save you lots of headaches and money in the future.
- Unusual noises (grinding, squealing, screeching, clunking or hissing)
- Strange odors
- Fluctuating temperatures
- Warm air coming from vents
- Excessive water or leaks
If your unit displays any of these signs or any other unusual symptoms, call a central air repairman in metro-Atlanta as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more costly any repairs will be.
Central Air Conditioning Maintenance – Preventing Unexpected Repair Expenses
While it's a good idea to find a repairman you can rely on, you shouldn't wait for your unit to start acting up before having it professionally serviced. Many people have the mindset of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" – however, they wouldn't drive their car 100,000 miles without changing the oil, so why wait until your A/C unit breaks completely to get it serviced?
Regular preventative maintenance is the key for increasing the overall life span of a central air unit.
Some maintenance you can do yourself, such as changing the air filter. At least once a year though, you should schedule a thorough checkup. A knowledgeable repairman will ensure that your system is operating a peak performance and can alert you to any problems before they cause the unit to breakdown.
