Spring has only just arrived, and we’re already looking at higher temperatures and regular use of your air conditioner. That’s only going to get worse as spring turns to summer, and soon enough, we’ll be running our air conditioners every day just to keep comfortable in the heat.
If there is a problem with your air conditioner, it is always better to spot it sooner rather than later. That tends to keep repair costs down, since the damage hasn’t had as much time to spread and gives you some flexibility in determining the best time to schedule repairs. (A breakdown in the summer usually means you have to reschedule your entire life and conduct repairs immediately.)
That means now is an excellent time to check your system for possible problems. No one should formally diagnose an air conditioning issue, much less attempt repairs (air conditioners contain potentially dangerous components like refrigerants, which require formal licensing to handle) unless they are professionals, but you don’t need to be an expert to spot the sign that something’s wrong.
