Why Whole Home AC Systems Are So Effective
When some homeowners consider cooling their homes, they may consider doing so by using a number of window units rather than a whole home system. Unfortunately, window units are not as capable of keeping your home cool and dry as a whole home system is. Why not? There are two important tasks that air conditioners perform: exchanging the warm air for cool and removing humidity. Trying to cool your entire home using 3 or 4 window units will cool and dehumidify the immediate space around the window unit, but not your entire home. This is why a whole home air conditioner is much more effective.
When Is It Time to Call for Help?
It’s pretty clear when your air conditioner isn’t working at all that it is time to call for repair help. But what about things that happen while the system is still operational? Here are some of the more common signs that it’s time to call our experts for air conditioning repair in Columbia:
- Strange sounds – your air conditioner should not operate noisily. Sound should be kept to a minimum. If you hear strange, loud sounds, like banging, buzzing or anything else, it’s time to give us a call.
- Suddenly high energy bills – if you notice that your energy bill has risen significantly and you haven’t changed how you are using your AC system, something in your system is malfunctioning, and it’s drawing too much power.
- Odors – there should never be any kind of smell coming from your system. If you do detect an odor, especially a burning one, call for help right away.
