Take it from us, a San Antonio summer is NO time for an air conditioner to break. With sweltering temperatures throughout August and September, nothing is more miserable than a hot, stuffy house – and it definitely takes its toll on your overall attitude. And we don’t blame you – when you’re not comfortable, it’s harder to concentrate and get things done.
That’s why we always educate our clients on common A/C problems. It’s always a good thing to be aware of potential problems that could mean BIG repairs or even an A/C replacement, and when you should call an A/C professional.
Your A/C Unit Is Blowing Hot Air
It’s 106 degrees in San Antonio and your A/C unit is being a blowhard – literally, blowing hot air and making your already stuffy house just about unbearable. If your air conditioning unit is failing to do its job, it usually means an airflow problem. Check your air filters. Are they clean or dirty? If they’re dirty, replace them immediately.
Your Air Conditioning Bill Is Abnormally High
Most San Antonio residents expect to pay higher energy bills in the summer because, well, it’s HOT. If you notice your A/C bills suddenly going through the roof, however, the culprit may be your air conditioning unit. Older units tend to run harder and less efficiently, making your utility bill skyrocket.
Your A/C Unit Is Making Scary, Loud Sounds
You pull up to your driveway after a long day at work and you notice an obnoxiously loud sound coming from your air conditioning unit. Like most people, it’s okay for your heart to skip a beat – the last thing you need is a tired or broken A/C. Check the unit to make sure it’s clear of grass and debris, and if that’s not the problem, it’s probably time to call an Aramendia Plumbing, Heating & Air technician.
