There are several indicators that your AC system should be addressed by a professional to determine if there are repairs that need to be made. Some of the most common issues that occur are issues cooling your entire house, a large increase in your energy bill, or if the unit is over 10 years old. Our team of NATE-certified professionals can examine the unit and determine if repairs will fix the issue or if replacement is necessary.
Similar to the suggested process with repairs, always have your AC system inspected by a licensed professional as soon as any issues arise. This will ensure the problem is addressed quickly and can help to prevent any further damages to the unit. On average, if your HVAC system is over 10 to 15 years old and is costing you additional money to run it, it may be time to consider a system replacement.

Each home has a unique layout and specific cooling needs, which is why you should always let a NATE-certified professional from Austin AC determine the proper unit size for your house.
