Your AC, heating system, and ductwork are all essential components of a relatively complicated system. As with any complex system, there’s a chance one or more of these components will suddenly stop working at the worst possible time.
Hopefully, this will never happen. If it does, though, we at Cunningham Associates offer emergency AC, heating, and duct repair services to residents of Atlanta, GA and the overall Fulton County area. We’re ready to offer prompt service when emergencies arise.
That said, your main goal is to avoid such emergencies in the first place. You can improve your odds of achieving this goal by:
Scheduling Regular Maintenance
One of the simplest ways to avoid unexpected heating and ductwork problems is also one of the most effective: Staying on top of upkeep.
When your AC, heating system, and ductwork are being installed, ask the technicians about what steps you can take to keep them in good working order for as long as possible. Our team will gladly offer essential upkeep tips.
That said, some maintenance tasks are best left to professionals who have experience installing, inspecting, and repairing HVAC systems. Thus, while you can maintain your AC, heater, and air ducts on your own to an extent, for optimal results, it’s also wise to regularly schedule routine maintenance with our experts.
Monitoring Your Energy Bills
This is another easy way to guard against sudden breakdowns or emergency situations. If your energy bills are higher than usual during a given time of year, this may indicate your HVAC system isn’t working at peak efficiency.
Perhaps this is due to the age of your system. Maybe it’s reaching the end of its lifespan.
Ductwork issues can also account for diminished efficiency. If there is a leak in your ductwork, or if your air ducts are clogged with debris, your AC and heating system will have to use more energy to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.
This puts a lot of stress on the system. If the problem goes unaddressed, there’s a good chance your AC or heater will break down without warning.
That doesn’t need to happen. Schedule an inspection of your HVAC system and ductwork if your energy bills are on the rise for no clear reason. Our technicians will take a close look at all components to determine if your high bills are due to HVAC efficiency problems. We’ll address said problems thoroughly if this is the case.
Don’t wait to contact us when you suspect your heating system is not operating as efficiently as it could be. If your system is running inefficiently, correcting the issue as soon as possible will help you save a lot of money on utility bills in the long run.
Once more, knowing whether your AC, heating system, and ductwork are in ideal condition doesn’t need to be that complicated. Along with practicing basic upkeep and paying attention to your bills, simply listening to your system when it’s in operation can also be key to identifying the signs of an issue before an emergency arises.
All HVAC systems generate at least some noise when they’re running. However, if the noise your system is generating is louder than normal, or if the noises coming from your system sound noticeably different from the noises you’re accustomed to, call a professional. This may be a sign of various potential issues.
All that said, if you ever do need emergency heating, AC, or air duct repair service in Atlanta, GA or the surrounding areas, our team at Cunningham Associates is available 24/7 to serve your needs. Give us a call if an emergency strikes. We’ll get your system back working again as quickly as possible.
