Now that fall is here, and the temperatures are starting to drop, it's time to schedule your HVAC maintenance. You want to make sure that your heater is prepared for the cold weather ahead. However, now's also the time to take care of any AC repairs that might have been overlooked during the summer. Taking care of the repairs during the fall will ensure that your AC is ready for action as soon as the temperatures warm up again.
It will also allow you to take care of the maintenance for your entire AC system at the same time. If you're not sure that your AC needs repairs at this time, read the list provided below. If you experienced any of these issues this past summer, have your HVAC technician take care of the repairs right away.
Fluctuating Humidity Levels
If you noticed problems with humidity this past summer, the issue might not have been the weather. Instead, there might have been a problem with your AC. You might not realize this, but a malfunctioning AC can lead to out-of-control humidity levels. That's because the ventilation portion of your HVAC system is supposed to control the humidity in your home. Unfortunately, when your HVAC system malfunctions, humidity levels can fluctuate between too much moisture and not quite enough. If you've experienced that problem this past summer, call for repairs as soon as possible.
Inconsistent Temperature Control
If you found yourself adjusting the thermostat throughout the day, all summer long, there's a good chance the problem relates to your HVAC system. First, your thermostat might be malfunctioning. Second, your AC might have been overheating. Finally, there could be an issue with the condenser. All of these issues can be repaired by your HVAC technician.
Increased Issues With Air Quality
If the air quality in your home was so bad this summer that you needed to invest in an air purifier, it's time to talk to your HVAC technician. Poor air quality can be caused by problems with your air conditioner. Many times, poor air quality is caused by a dirty air filter. Other times, poor air quality can be caused by dirty air ducts. In either case, your HVAC technician can help to resolve the issues.
Don't wait until summer. If your AC gave you problems this past summer, take care of the repairs while you're having your heater serviced this fall.
