Does Your AC Unit Need an Emergency Repair?

Emergency Air Conditioning Repair Replacement Arlington

Emergency AC repair in Arlington is needed more often than you probably realize. When your AC conks out in the middle of a hot summer’s night, you want it repaired as soon as possible. You can wait for an AC repair company to fit you in or call for emergency AC repair when you need it fixed as quickly as possible.

Do You Need Emergency AC Repair?

Not every AC repair is an emergency. For instance, you might have fans to keep you cool until your AC is repaired. So, when do you need an emergency AC repair?

Consider an emergency repair if:

  1. The temperature outside is above 90 degrees.
  2. You have family members who can’t handle excessive heat – such as the elderly, children, or people with illnesses.
  3. Water leaking from the AC is damaging your home.
  4. The AC has an electrical problem, causing the lights to dim, causing a power outage, or producing a burning smell.

Maintenance Helps Avoid Emergency AC Repairs

Regular AC repair helps prevent breakdowns. Maintaining your AC also improves the quality of your indoor air.

The quality of indoor air plays a role in your health. An efficient AC removes certain particles and allergens from the air. There are AC filters that cleanse the air of bacteria, dirt, dust, and mold.

A routine inspection includes services such as:

– Cleaning the air ducts

– Checking the AC compressor and condenser

– Changing the air filter

– Checking the thermostat

– Checking the belt and fan blades for damage

– Lubricating the belt and fan blades

Keep a Maintenace Schedule

Muirfield Mechanical recommends performing maintenance during the spring. It’s best to schedule maintenance during the same time each year so you’ll remember to get it done.

Annual maintenance reduces the chance of your AC needing emergency repair. A poorly maintained air conditioner won’t last long. But a well-maintained AC can last for 20 years or more. A well-maintained AC also uses less energy, allowing you to save money on your power bill while staying cool.
