Heating and Air Questions
Should I replace my old air conditioner?
As air conditioning systems age they tend to lose efficiency. Less efficient AC systems can cause an increase in your electric bill. If you are seeing a rise in utility bills or your AC system is over 10 years old we recommend calling an HVAC professional to help determine if you should replace your air conditioner.
Are HVAC maintenance plans worth it?
HVAC maintenance plans have several benefits. Besides saving you money on your semi-annual maintenance they also allow a licensed heating and air technician to review your air conditioner twice per year. This helps them diagnose small problems with your AC system before they become major ones. HVAC maintenance plans are a great option for most people.
How often should you have your HVAC serviced?
At Hagler Heating & Cooling, we recommend having your air conditioning system serviced 2x per year. Spring and Fall maintenance can help extend the life of your AC unit as well as increase the comfort of your home.
Is a broken air conditioner an emergency?
Anytime your AC system is not working as it should it can be frustrating. If you have elderly adults or small children living in your home it can be an emergency. High indoor temperatures can become unsafe for these individuals. If your AC system has stopped cooling we recommend calling a licensed HVAC professional immediately to diagnose and repair the problem.
What does a bad AC compressor sound like?
If your AC system is making a banging or grinding noise it could be the AC compressor. At Hagler Heating & Cooling, we recommend calling a licensed HVAC technician to diagnose any air conditioning problem you may have. Trying to diagnose or repair an air conditioner yourself can be dangerous due to the electrical components of the system. Trust an experienced heating and air professional for all your AC repairs.
What would cause my AC not to come on?
There are several reasons an AC system may not come on. If you have this issue, check your thermostat for loose or disconnected wires. Wires that are frayed or disconnected will not allow your AC system to turn on. Another issue could be a faulty or broken thermostat. If you look into these two solutions and still have an issue, give us a call. We are here to help.
