Maintenance is key to making your AC home comfort system last longer. If you are detecting an odor or smell from your AC unit, then please give an HVAC professional a call for routine maintenance.
If the breaker trips immediately when the AC unit is plugged in, then call Air Source America to check out what is going on with the air conditioning system. If the breaker only trips periodically, please call an electrician. That breaker could be wearing out.
If your air conditioning or heating system is running all the time, round the clock, then it could be that it is not running at its peak efficiency. This could mean that you are paying a lot more for your electricity due to an inefficient AC unit. If you like, give us a call. Air Source America will send a technician to check it out for you.

Maintenance is key to making anything last longer. It prevents little problems from becoming big problems. We have found that routine maintenance will make your Air Conditioning system to work better, more efficiently, as well as last longer.
First, check your breakers. This will probably be the easiest think to check and fix. Many things can cause your electrical system to trip. If the breaker is not tripped, go ahead and turn off the air conditioning unit. This will prevent further damage to the outside unit. After that, give us a call.
Turn off the AC unit, then go outside and clear the drain line. You can do this with a shop vac suctioning the PVC drain line where the drain terminates outside. Once it clears, you can turn the air conditioner back on. If that hasn’t fixed the leaky AC, give us a call.
The first thing you can do check if your breaker is tripped. The next thing is to clear the drain line out with a shop vac. If it is neither of these, give us a call.
The culprit is probably a dirty filter. Turn off the AC unit, replace the filter and see if the unit still freezes up.
