With summer weather having officially arrived here in the Delaware Valley, it’s only going to continue to get warmer in the Philadelphia region. This means that it is imperative that your commercial air conditioning unit is in working order so that you are not left without it during the heat of summer.
It’s important that you have your air conditioning system inspected and maintained before any issues cause it to shut down altogether. However, one problem is that many business owners are too busy running their business to remember that their air conditioning system needs to be maintained or that repairs may be necessary until it is too late, and there is no air conditioning. Our maintenance agreements take the worry and remembering to service this equipment off the owner’s to do list. Here are a few of the signs that you can look for that are indicative that your air conditioner may be in need of repairs if proper maintenance has not been completed.
Your air conditioning is noisy
While an air conditioner is meant to make a certain amount of noise when it is running, this noise should not be overly loud or excessive. If you have noticed that your air conditioning system has gotten louder recently, then it is imperative that you have it inspected and repaired by an air conditioning professional. This will help to ensure that any parts that may be failing causing this excess noise can be repaired before they cause greater issues/damage to your system.
Your air conditioner is not emitting cold air
One of the most obvious signs that there is something wrong with your air conditioning system is if you notice that it is blowing warmer air than it once did. Furthermore, you may have noticed that it takes your system longer than normal to cool your building to the set temperature. If you notice either of these conditions, do not assume that it is a sign of your air conditioner aging; it could be likely that your system needs maintenance, and/or repairs, or that it even needs something as simple as an inspection and cleaning. Having a professional technician take a look at your system will help you to determine what is wrong with it, and it will ensure that it works properly all summer.
Your A/C has weak airflow
Another obvious sign that something may be wrong with your AC system is if it is not blowing a sufficient amount of air. While older systems will begin to gradually blow less air, a sudden drop in the volume of air your system puts out could be indicative of a bigger issue.
Recognizing these signs should help you to know when you need to have your air conditioning system repaired. However, these are just a few of the many signs that can be indicative that your system may be in need of maintenance before a costly breakdown happens resulting in a big repair bill. That’s why it is advisable that you have your system inspected, maintained, and serviced throughout the year. This will ensure that any issues are resolved and that your system runs properly throughout the summer. Contact us to find out about having your air conditioning system serviced and maintained.
