As summer gets into full swing in Georgetown, the need to keep cool increases – especially when the relentlessly hot months of July, August, and September make their appearance. If your air conditioner barely made it through last summer, and you are thinking you might save a few bucks by waiting one more summer before getting it repaired, that’s a bad idea. It’s much more economical to bite the bullet and pay for a Georgetown AC repair service than to waste money trying to cool down a house with a unit that isn’t working properly. In other words, if your unit isn’t properly functioning, it’s likely that you are wasting energy, and all wasted energy is money consumed by the heat.

Some signs to look for that you may need to call a Georgetown AC repair technician include a lot of starting and stopping, condensation appearing on the side of the unit and collecting into a small pool of water, the unit stalling before it gets to the temperature set on the thermostat, uneven cooling throughout the house or even no cooling at all, a unit that never seems to stop running, and of course, a unit that won’t turn on. If some desperate or greedy soul has stolen the copper from your air conditioning unit, you will have to get that replaced, as well.

If you do not have any of these kinds of problems going on, you may be set for summer, but just to be sure, it is a good idea to have a Georgetown AC repair technician come out and make sure that your unit is working properly and that it’s energy-efficient and not throwing your money out the window with the heat. A Georgetown AC repair technician can come and inspect your thermostat, the refrigeration and refrigerant (Freon), as well as your ductwork and insulation to make sure that when you run your air in the coming months, you’ll actually be using as little energy as possible in order to stay comfortable while saving money on utility bills at the same time.

If you really want to stay on top of things, keep up maintenance on your air conditioning unit by scheduling regular inspections to make sure that everything is working well and you are using energy as efficiently as possible. This will make a big difference next summer when the heat starts coming around again. You’ll have the security of knowing that everything is taken care of as far as cooling is concerned, and there won’t be any surprise expenses that catch you off guard and ruin your vacation budget.
