It’s that time of year again… spring is beginning to arrive, and warmer weather with it. Before you know it, spring will pass and the brutal heat of Chicagoland summer will be on its way. This is the season of outdoor activities, but you need a cool refuge to retreat to to rest and relax.
But if your air conditioner isn’t working properly, the temperature inside your home can quickly climb to uncomfortable levels… meaning it won’t be that great of a place to retreat from the heat! And when the heat outside reaches triple digits — which has been known to happen here — it can be downright unbearable inside your house. At G & R Heating and Air, it’s our goal to keep the communities we serve comfortable inside their homes. A big part of this is maintaining or repairing your AC equipment before the temperatures start to rise.
Diagnosing AC Problems
Do you remember how your cooling system performed last year? You might have heard strange sounds coming from your AC unit, or even strange smells. If this is the case, make sure to call us right away for a diagnostic AC repair visit. During your visit, your technician may advise you on upgrading your air conditioner to a new unit — we provide free estimates on new equipment.
AC Problems that can be harder to notice
Of course, while the previous issues mentioned are very obvious signs of a problem, there are other issues that could be going on but aren’t quite as noticeable. If you can’t seem to get your home cool enough — even though you’ve set the thermostat appropriately — there might be an issue with the thermostat sensor. If your AC unit seems to be laboring, there could be an issue with the condenser or the evaporator coils could be dirty or clogged. Our experienced team of HVAC technicians will thoroughly inspect your air conditioner, and once the issue has been found, work quickly to resolve it.
Regular AC Maintenance and Tune Ups
Even if your air conditioning was running fine last year, we recommend having an AC tune up performed before the warmer weather starts to arrive. This will ensure that your equipment will be able to keep you cool throughout the year. Remember that regularly maintaining your AC equipment has other benefits, such as helping your HVAC equipment to cool your home more efficiently. This can help save on utility bills by saving energy. Regular AC tune ups also help to avoid unnecessary repairs over time. You can call us any time at (224) 419-5324 to schedule your visit, or contact us online; our friendly staff will work with you to book a convenient time.
