Should AC Equipment Be Serviced Annually?

Like most HVAC professionals, we recommend that air conditioning systems be maintained once a year. An annual service appointment will ensure that an AC receives all the cleaning, lubricating, and testing required to stay in good working order. It will also allow for any minor issues to be spotted and repaired before they turn into major problems. This can save lots of money on repairs and premature replacement. Those who keep their AC well-maintained will also enjoy savings on their energy bills, as well as better indoor air quality.

Should AC Equipment Be Serviced Annually?

Regular maintenance is crucial to keeping your air conditioner running smoothly and extending its lifespan. At Barbour Heating & Air, we offer comprehensive preventive maintenance services that can help you avoid costly repairs and ensure your AC system operates efficiently throughout the year.

Our skilled technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your air conditioner, checking for any potential issues and addressing them before they become major problems. This includes cleaning and replacing filters, lubricating moving parts, checking refrigerant levels, and inspecting electrical connections.

Strange Noises Coming from Your AC?

Air conditioning units are essential for maintaining a comfortable environment, particularly during hot summer months. However, it can be unsettling when unusual noises start emanating from the AC unit. These sounds can vary from minor irritations to potential indicators of underlying problems. Familiarizing yourself with the various types of air conditioner noises can help you pinpoint the issue and take appropriate action.
Here are some common types of air conditioner noises and their possible meanings:
  • Banging or Clanking: Loose or broken components, such as fan blades or motor mounts.
  • Buzzing: Electrical problems, loose parts, or a failing compressor.
  • Clicking: Faulty thermostat, control panel issues, or a defective relay.
  • Hissing: Refrigerant leaks, often accompanied by reduced cooling efficiency.
  • Rattling: Loose or worn-out parts, like screws, ductwork, or fan blades.
  • Squealing or Screeching: Worn-out or misaligned belts, bearings, or motor issues.
  • Thumping: Imbalanced fan blades, motor problems, or debris in the system.
  • Whistling: Airflow restrictions, such as a clogged filter or ductwork.
Regular maintenance, such as cleaning or replacing filters, can help prevent some of these noises. Additionally, scheduling professional tune-ups can identify and resolve potential problems before they escalate.

Why Is My AC Freezing Up?

The most common cause of a frozen air conditioner is a dirty air filter. The air filter is responsible for removing particulates from the air being circulated in a home. As the AC system runs, the filter will catch dirt, dust, dander, pollen, and other contaminants. When the filter becomes too full, it can restrict airflow and cause the AC coils to freeze. To prevent this issue from occurring, it’s best to check the filter once a month and change it as needed.

Clogged AC filters can also cause a range of other problems, including:

Our expert technicians can help homeowners locate their air filter and change it out whenever required. We’re also happy to perform other preventative maintenance tasks and repairs that will keep an AC working strongly and efficiently for longer.
