- Add oil to the motors, examine belts, and inspect all other working components.

The Top Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Maintenance

- Not reaching the desired temperature: If your home isn’t reaching the desired temperature, or if cold air is not coming from the unit, you should schedule an appointment with a professional.
- Not cooling evenly: You should have a professional inspect your air conditioner if your AC unit isn’t cooling your home evenly, or if you notice hot and cold spots throughout your home.
- Increase in utility bills: If you notice a steady increase in your utility bills you should have your AC unit inspected by a professional.
