As summer is winding down and the new school year has already begun, it’s easy to get into fall mode, but the cooling season isn’t over yet! Don’t let your newly-busy schedule get in the way of your home comfort—make sure your air conditioner is ready to tackle the end of summer with maintenance, repairs, or even a replacement system if it’s needed. 

As an air conditioning installer in Marietta and the surrounding area, Anchor Heating & Air can evaluate your cooling system and ensure that it’s running smoothly. If it’s not, we can help find a long-lasting and efficient solution.

Keep Your AC Running Smoothly With Maintenance

If you missed the chance to schedule annual maintenance for your air conditioner at the beginning of the season don’t worry—it’s not too late! Whether you have a heat pump or a traditional AC, the best way to keep your cooling system running efficiently is with regular maintenance. 

Annual preventative maintenance means greater energy efficiency, early diagnostics of potential problems, and a longer lifespan for any HVAC system. Anchor makes it easy with our EZ-Pay Program! By joining our maintenance plan you can see many benefits, including:

Know When to Repair and When to Replace Your AC 

When your HVAC is having issues, it’s hard to know whether you should repair or replace your system. Our team can evaluate the problem to make the decision easier, but here are some things to look out for to know when your air conditioner is on its way out:

Your AC Is More Than 10 Years Old

Air conditioners can have a lifespan of 15-20 years, but they tend to start losing their efficiency after about a decade. If your cooling system starts having problems and it’s over 10 years old, it might be time to consider replacing it with a newer model. 

Costly Repairs

Generally, if the cost of repairing your air conditioner is more than half the cost of a new system, it’s a good idea to upgrade. As any HVAC starts to fail, repairs can start to snowball, and putting that money towards a replacement cooling system will lead to more savings overall.

Short Cycling & Other Problems

If your air conditioner won’t turn on it’s obvious that there’s an issue, but some signs are much less apparent. Short cycling (when your AC turns off and on repeatedly), loud banging noises, or weak airflow can all point to a failing compressor—which often ends with replacing the system.
