“Hard starting” is something that people in colder climates sometimes encounter with their cars during winter. The engine works harder and takes longer to turn over and start. But hard starting isn’t limited to cars or cold weather: your air conditioning system can begin to hard start. If it does, you’ll probably need to schedule AC repair in Mandeville, LA, or you may even need to purchase a new air conditioner.

Last month we posted a reminder about getting on the schedule for air conditioning maintenance. Spring has only just officially started, so it’s the ideal time to have this essential air conditioning service in Slidell, LA done.
We’ve talked before about all the benefits of having maintenance done each year, and we’re going to focus on one specifically. But it’s a big one! An annual inspection and tune-up for an AC goes a long way toward preventing the majority of repairs the system may need over its service life.
We know you have plenty to worry about on a day-to-day basis when it comes to operating your business. That’s why you would like your HVAC system to simply do its job in the background so you don’t have to pay any attention to it. Ideally, this is how commercial heating and cooling should work, and when we handle installation and maintenance services for commercial HVAC systems, it’s our aim to see that the comfort system operates as worry-free as possible.
But when your AC system begins to malfunction during the warmer weather, you can count on us to come to your assistance with repairs. First, you have to know there is a problem, and commercial systems can sometimes hide their malfunctions until they get too big. In this post, we’re going to go over the warning signs to watch for that you may need commercial AC repairs.
The final heat of the year can often bring the need for a major central air conditioning repair in Slidell, LA. Any home AC has already seen plenty of extreme heat this year, and if it’s managed this far without needing repairs, that’s great. (In fact, we’d wager the reason is that the system received professional maintenance in spring—no better way to prepare an AC for the “battle” with summer weather than with a pro tune-up before the season.)
As your AC comes to the finish line for the year, there are several malfunctions that may crop up because of the long strain. Even the best maintenance in the world can’t stop all malfunctions from a stressful summer. One common trouble air conditioners can encounter at this period is failed capacitors. This is an easy malfunction for our technicians to fix, so as long as you watch out for it and know the signs it’s occurring, you should have an easy end to hot weather.
It may be fall now, but when it comes to air conditioning repair, when you need it you need it. This isn’t a time when you can delay getting a faulty air conditioning system fixed just because there’s a chance—and only a chance—you may not need it for a few months.
In general, leaving any sort of equipment with a malfunction is a poor idea. But neglecting AC repairs can put you in a trouble spot, either in the immediate future or further down the road. We’ll explain more about why fast AC repairs in Slidell, LA are important no matter the season and no matter the upcoming weather forecast.
Your air conditioning system doesn’t go to school and come back with report cards. But we recommend you give your AC a report card at the end of every summer because it’s a good way for you to analyze the system’s performance. Fall is an ideal time to make upgrades or even a full replacement to your AC, and the grade you give the air conditioner will help you think about your future home cooling.
Use the classic grading system of “A” through “F” and answer this question: “How would I rate the overall performance of my air conditioning this summer?”
With temperatures in the upper 80s and sometimes the 90s and relative humidity above 80%, this is a time of year when we need to rely heavily on our home air conditioning systems for comfort. (By the way, if your air conditioning system doesn’t have a dehumidifier built into it, we recommend calling us for whole-house dehumidifier installation. It can make an enormous difference in comfort and how much you run the AC.)
Because we depend so much on air conditioning systems at the close of the summer, and because air conditioners have already put in so much hard work in the first half of the season, this is a period when ACs are at the highest risk of malfunctions and even full breakdowns.
This post is our way to help remind you to keep a close watch for indications you need AC repairs in Slidell, LA. We are ready to help the moment you’ve got an AC dealing with late-summer woes!
We understand many homeowners are looking for ways to make their money go farther. We encourage that! But a big part of improving home finances is understanding where to invest the money in professional services. You can take over doing all the garden work yourself—but when it comes to handling air conditioning services, from repairs to a replacement, you only want to trust to a full professional Slidell, LA air conditioning company. Don’t try to do the work on your own, and don’t let an amateur talk you into using their unlicensed service!
Why is it so important that you turn to professionals only for AC services? Here are a few of the best reasons.
We take great pride at Gowland’s with the speed of our service. It’s why we say that we are available at your convenience rather than ours. We are ready with 24-hour emergency service for air conditioning repair in Slidell, LA, and throughout the New Orleans area because we know how much our customers depend on their cooling equipment during hot and humid Louisiana summers.
But we also understand that people may feel hesitant about calling for emergency repairs. “What counts as an emergency?” they ask. “When do I need to have repairs right now?”
The simplest way we can answer this is, “If you think it’s an emergency, treat it like one.” You won’t regret calling for service even if the situation wasn’t as urgent as you first believed. When you think you need help right away, go with that instinct. And please, don’t try to repair the AC yourself or look to an amateur who makes big promises to do it. You won’t like the results.
You never want an air conditioning malfunction to sneak up on you, since it can mean losing cooling for your house during one of the hottest days of summer. You can’t predict all air conditioning problems ahead of time, but the majority will give off some warning signs. If you know what to look for—or in this case, listen for—you can call our repairs experts in time to head off a bigger disaster.
Odds sounds are among the commonest ways that an air conditioner signals something is wrong with it. Please don’t overlook these strange noises just because the cooling capacity of the AC still seems fine. These sounds almost always indicate a problem that will worsen without attention from technicians.
