Heating and Air Questions
How do you know when you need a new air conditioner?
Most AC systems need to be replaced when their age gets to around 10-15 years. Signs you may need a new air conditioning system can be strange noises, AC blowing warm air, increased utility bills, and ice buildup on your AC unit. If you are experiencing any of these issues we recommend you call a licensed HVAC professional for a free AC system replacement estimate to determine the right route to go.
How do you diagnose AC problems?
A licensed HVAC technician can diagnose AC problems using several steps. Checking the thermometer, assessing moisture near your AC system, evaluating humidity levels in your home, and surveying for foul odors due to AC repair needs. Although these steps may seem easy, there is much more that goes into diagnosing an AC problem. At Wade’s Repair Service, Inc. we do not recommend diagnosing your air conditioning issues on your own. From mechanical to electrical components there are many parts that can be dangerous to evaluate. Always call a licensed HVAC professional if you think you are in need of AC repair.
Should I get my AC serviced every year?
At Wade’s Repair Service, Inc. we recommend servicing your AC system two times throughout the calendar year. A fall and also a spring maintenance session can ensure your system operates efficiently and keeps you comfortable all year long. AC service can help extend the life of your air conditioning system as well as help your system operate more efficiently.
What is routine AC maintenance?
Routine AC maintenance helps extend the life of your AC system as well as allows a licensed technician to uncover small issues before they become major repairs.

Can I install my own air conditioner?
At Wade’s Repair Service, Inc. we do not recommend installing your own air conditioner. Not only can it be dangerous due to the mechanical and electrical needs of an AC system, it may also void any warranty your new system has. Always call a licensed HVAC professional for your heating and air installation needs.
What would cause my AC not to come on?
There are several reasons an AC system may not come on. If you have this issue, check your thermostat for loose or disconnected wires. Wires that are frayed or disconnected will not allow your AC system to turn on. Another issue could be a faulty or broken thermostat. If you look into these two solutions and still have an issue, give us a call. We are here to help.
