When the air conditioning goes down, especially in the summer time, it is always a big question as to whether or not it can be fixed at home. Understanding when to call a Richmond HVAC professional is confusing for most homeowners, and will of course depend on how comfortable you are with doing things at home. Nevertheless, here are some of the telltale signs that it is time to call an HVAC professional.

Your air conditioning hasn’t been working for several days without improvement. When the system stops giving cold air and you can’t get it to work again, it is most likely time to call the professional. Some people will put off calling a professional because they are not in need of AC at the time, but this is not recommended. If your AC unit has been consistently underperforming regardless of the weather at the time, you should call a professional before the problem gets worse.
The AC unit cannot maintain a consistent temperature. If the temperature in your home swings from hot to cold with the air conditioning running, you most likely have a calibration or hardware problem that will require the skills of a professional.
Energy bills have gone up without any increases in usage. If you have noticed that your home energy bill has shot up without any plausible explanation, it is time to call in a professional. Rises in energy costs can be anything from problems with the ductwork system in your home to a malfunctioning unit. Either way, getting to the bottom of the problem will require a holistic examination by a professional.

Unless you have considerable experience working with air conditioning units, if there is a major problem with your unit it is recommended that you go with a professional. If there is a problem with your AC unit it is best to have a professional fix it before the trouble gets worse. In our experience, a minor problem can turn into a major disaster for homeowners who put off repairs. For more help with your AC unit in Richmond, VA, contact us today!
