Repair / Maintenance

Your home comfort system is most likely the single biggest use of energy in your home. In fact, over a third of the energy used in the United States is used to heat and cool buildings. Having a properly maintained heating and air conditioning system will have the biggest impact on your energy costs.

Your central air conditioning system is no different than any other major machine. Just like your vehicle needs oil changes, new filters, service inspections and minor repairs over time, your air conditioner also needs a small amount of ongoing attention to help you get the greatest comfort, efficient and lifespan out of your system.

During routine air conditioner service, the technician will inspect for potential safety issues, clean heat exchangers and check that the systems are operating within manufacturer specifications. Being proactive about your central air maintenance may also head off larger repairs caused by equipment running with dirty coils, dirty filters or low refrigerant levels.

If it's time for maintenance or in the event that you do need a repair, don't hesitate to contact Lake Contracting.

So how are you supposed to know when your air conditioner needs repaired?

Unfortunately, AC problems at some point or another are inevitable, especially as the unit gets older. Because your unit plays such an important role in your comfort and safety, scheduling timely air conditioning repairs is essential. Some of the most common issues that will require repairs include:
Your air conditioner is blowing hot air
One of the most telltale signs that your AC needs professional attention is if the unit is blowing hot air. Unless you have a mini-duct split system, your AC is made to blow cool air and cool air only so hot air is a serious red flag. This can be caused by broken internal components or low levels of refrigerant.
Your air conditioning system is producing strange smells
There are a number of reasons for bad smells coming from your air conditioning system, from pest infiltration to burned-out wire insulation or even mold growth. These should be dealt with quickly, as they could impact the health of everyone in your home.
Your thermostat reading is wrong
Sometimes the problem can be found with your thermostat rather than your system. If your home's temperature differs vastly from your thermostat reading, contact us for service.
Your system is short-cycling
If your air conditioner is continuously starting up, running briefly, and then shutting down, your system is short-cycling. There are various reasons this could be happening, and sometimes the solution is as easy as replacing your filter. it's recommended that homeowners replace their air filters every three months. If this doesn't solve the problem, it's time for a service call.
You notice your air conditioner is inefficient
If you notice that your unit is not as efficient as it once was, there could be something wrong with your AC. You will know your unit has lost efficiency if you notice a sudden increase in your utility bills which will reflect that more power than usual was used to cool your home.
You're experiencing inconsistent temperatures
Another common indicator that your have AC troubles is temperatures around different areas of your home are different and inconsistent. This could be due to dirty air vents and filters or failing internal components.
You notice leaks
If your AC unit is leaking, it's definitely time for professional repair services. Moisture around your unit can indicate that the drain tube has been damaged or is blocked. Additionally, refrigerant can also create leaking issues.
