A/C Repair FAQ: Your Questions Answered by Denillo Heating & Cooling, Inc.

Whether you’re a first-time homeowner, someone who has just bought a new home, a seasoned single-family homeowner, or even a commercial property owner, the need for a reliable A/C system is universal. We at Denillo Heating & Cooling, Inc. are here to break down the most common A/C repair questions to help you better understand and maintain your cooling system.

1. How often should I have my A/C system serviced?
Regular maintenance is key to the longevity and efficiency of your system. We recommend a professional checkup once a year. This ensures your A/C runs optimally, which can lead to energy savings and a longer lifespan for your unit.

2. Why is my A/C blowing warm air?
There could be several reasons for this, including a dirty air filter, a malfunctioning thermostat, or low refrigerant. Instead of attempting a DIY fix, it’s best to consult with a professional to diagnose and rectify the issue.

3. How long should an A/C system last?
The average lifespan of an A/C system is between 15 and 20 years. However, regular maintenance, timely repairs, and how frequently you use it can influence this timeframe. Proper care can help you make the most of your investment.

4. Why is my A/C making strange noises?
Sounds like grinding, squealing, or banging can indicate issues like a slipped belt or a motor problem. If you’re hearing unusual noises, it’s crucial to address them promptly. The earlier we catch a problem, the easier (and often less costly) it is to fix.

5. How can I ensure the efficiency of my A/C?
Regular maintenance is the top recommendation. Also, ensure that your home is adequately insulated, your filters are changed every 2-3 months, and your thermostat is functioning correctly. As first-time or new home buyers, getting acquainted with your system can also help in recognizing any irregularities.

6. Do you provide services for commercial properties?
Absolutely! At Denillo Heating & Cooling, Inc., we offer specialized services for commercial properties. We understand the unique demands of commercial A/C systems and are equipped to handle them.

7. Is it worth repairing an old A/C or should I replace it?
This depends on the age of your system, the cost of repairs, and its overall efficiency. Typically, if the repair cost is over 50% of a new system’s value and the unit is more than ten years old, replacement might be more cost-effective. We’re always here to provide guidance tailored to your specific situation.

Owning a home or commercial property comes with its own set of responsibilities and challenges. Ensuring a cool and comfortable environment is vital, especially during those sweltering Pennsylvania summers.
