Time to Inspect Your AC Wires
What can go wrong with your AC wires? The wires that connect your AC, outlets, and electrical breaker can face a few problems, including faults or damage to the wire itself, a tripped circuit breaker, or faulty electrical outlets. When one of these things goes wrong, it impacts your whole AC system — you’ll need to have it inspected and repaired.
Signs It’s Time to Have Your AC Outlet Wiring Inspected and Fixed
If your AC wire set is damaged or faulty, it will probably tell you. Look out for the following signs that your wires could be damaged:
Visible rodent damage, chewed wires
Random or frequent circuit breaker trips
An electrical odor, burning smell
How Does an AC Wiring Inspection and Repair Work?
Get an assessment of your HVAC system
An HVAC specialist will assess your air conditioner and electrical system and find the source of your issue. If the specialist locates damaged AC wires or outlets, they’ll discuss the option to have them repaired.
Review the estimate with the specialist
You’ll be quoted based on the type of air conditioning system you have, the type of wires it requires, and how involved the installation will be. You have options, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!
Inspect and fix your AC wires
An HVAC technician will come to your house to inspect and repair your AC wiring system. Because faulty wires might be related to another issue with your home’s system, the time it takes to fix this issue differs. If the job requires more than simply fixing the wires, it could take longer than expected.
