Common problems that users face with their air conditioning systems are ineffective cooling, accumulation of water pools below the machine, faulty temperature control and rattling sound when the AC is shutting down. These are no serious problems that can raise the fear of a huge air repair bill but they should be taken as an indication that the machine requires servicing and any delay can have serious implications on the functioning of the AC. It is learnt that people delay servicing there ACs because they use them year round and they find it quite difficult to live without air conditioners.
Ideally an AC should be serviced at regular intervals otherwise it would consume more energy. Regular service by an experienced technician can enlarge the life of your machine and also keep its power consumption under control. There are many technicians available on the web but you should shop around as technicians reduce or increase their fees after assessing the users’ requirements. Locate a reliable and experienced technician that can inspect the machine at your home and do necessary job at no extra cost. You should discuss the pricing with the technician before allowing him to start the job and if you feel that he is inflating the air repair bill then you can look for another technician.
The right time to service your AC is fall and spring because ACs generally not used during these months. Servicing AC in winter or summer can be painful as you would feel uncomfortable during extreme weather conditions.
