Heating and Air Questions

How do you know when you need a new air conditioner?

Most air conditioning systems last 10-15 years depending on how they are taken care of. Regular AC maintenance can help extend the life of your AC system as well as increase its energy efficiency. Is your air conditioner is making strange noises? Is your home feeling less cool than normal? If you are near the 10-year mark it may be time to consider a new AC system. At Conrad Watson Air Conditioning Inc. we offer free system replacement estimates to help determine which AC system is right for your family.

Should I turn my AC off if it is not cooling?

If your AC system is running but not cooling it may indicate a mechanical problem. Turning off your system will help avoid worsening an existing issue resulting in increased repair costs. After turning off your AC system contact a licensed HVAC professional to diagnose the issue with your AC system. A quick repair will get you back to a comfortable home environment.

How do I know if I need my AC serviced?

The following signs are usually present when you need your AC system serviced:

  • Strange odors in your home
  • Unusual noises from your AC system
  • A frequent cycling of your AC system
  • Higher than normal humidity in your house
  • Leaking water from your air conditioner

If you notice any of these we recommend calling a licensed HVAC professional to service your AC system.

How often should I have my AC checked?

We recommend air conditioning maintenance 2x per year. Having AC maintenance performed in the Fall and also the spring can help your system have a longer life. A licensed technician will perform routine maintenance on your HVAC system which will help your family stay cool and also comfortable.

What happens if AC condenser is clogged?

A clogged condenser coil can be a major problem. If you suspect your AC condenser is clogged your home may be warmer than normal or your AC system may be running but not cooling. Calling a licensed professional to diagnose the problem and also fix it will save you the headache of trying to determine the problem on your own.
