With the temperature finally hitting the single digits, many homeowners have already turned off their Air Conditioning units. You may not need your AC unit at the moment, in fact, you may have even already turned on your furnace, but that doesn’t mean your AC unit doesn’t need last-minute attention. If you noticed any of the following signs in your home/ AC unit, you may want to consider getting it serviced before you need it in the following summer season:

Your House Didn’t Cool
If you noticed having to adjust the temperature in your home too frequently or having to strip off layers of your outfit in order to get comfortable, then you were experiencing a sure sign of a faulty AC unit. If you did not feel adequately cool in your home in the summer, your AC likely isn’t working well enough for you, which shouldn’t be the case.

Super High Energy Bills
If you found your energy bill was slowly getting way too high for comfort throughout the summer, then your AC probably isn’t working efficiently. This can be due to many different reasons—your AC may be faulty, has a broken piece, filter is dirty, etc. Whatever the reason is, a professional HVAC company can find the root of the problem and fix it so that your energy bills remain at a normal level.

Your AC Unit Makes Noises
Odd noises from your air conditioning system indicate that there is a problem within your system. Something may be broken, loose, or missing altogether, causing the noise to arise and your system not to function properly. If you’ve noticed your AC unit making noises before you turned it off for the season, it is time to call an HVAC professional to handle your service.

When summertime comes around again next year, you will have thanked yourself for dealing with these issues before turning off your AC for the winter. Save your future self from unnecessarily having to endure the summer heat until you repair your Air Conditioning unit. If you notice any of these things in your AC unit or any other signs that your AC unit isn’t working properly, call the HVAC professionals at Taunton Trades today at 905-493-4227 or
