What to Look Out For
Okay, so you want to ensure that you are scheduling prompt air conditioning repair services. It helps to keep your comfort on track, and can help to minimize any adverse effects that operational problems may have on your AC system. That still begs the question, though, of how you know when your system is in trouble. After all, you aren’t going to want to wait for your system to break down entirely before you go about repairing it. That is why you should familiarize yourself with some common signs of trouble.
- AC is blowing warm air. This is a pretty obvious indicator that something is wrong with your system. You could have forgotten to switch the thermostat back over to its cooling mode, which is a very simple fix. Or, you could have it set to fan-only. It is also possible that the outdoor unit is off because its circuit breaker tripped, while the indoor air handler is still functioning and forcing air throughout the system.
- AC is making strange sounds. Your air conditioner is not going to function silently. You may hear the sound of air being forced through the ducts, and you can probably hear the outdoor unit kick on if you’re nearby. However, you shouldn’t be hearing new sounds or very loud sounds coming from your AC. Grinding, screeching, frequent starting and stopping — keep your ears open, and alert us to any abnormal sounds coming from your AC.
- AC is icing over. Have you spotted water around your indoor AC unit, or peeked into your air handler and found ice? If so, you have a potentially serious problem on your hand. An iced up evaporator coil could simply mean restricted airflow due to a dirty filter. It could also mean a refrigerant leak, though, especially if the refrigerant lines themselves and the outdoor condenser coils are frosting over.
When it comes down to it, any irregularities with the operation of your AC are cause enough to have a professional check things out. It is definitely better to be safe than sorry in terms of your home cooling system. Let us help you to keep your home comfortable during the worst of the summer heat.
