Warning Signs That Indicate You Need Air Conditioner Repair

Watch out for the following warning signs:

1) Lack Of Cold Air

If the air coming from your vents isn’t as cool as it once was or not cool at all you may have some serious issues that require repair. Causes can include a failed compressor or inadequate refrigerant levels both of which should be addressed immediately.

2) Reduced Airflow

A lack of airflow may be the result of a dirty air filter or ducts, leaky ductwork, or issues with your compressor. The certified technicians at AAA Heating & Air Conditioning will provide you with an expert diagnosis and solution to restore airflow and ensure your cooling system is fully functional.

3) Strange Sounds

Squealing, grinding, clicking, hissing, or other unusual sounds require an immediate call for service to avoid further damage to your air conditioner and ensure the safety of your home and family.

4) Rising Energy Costs

Increasing energy bills are a sign of a decrease in efficiency and may signal a need for air conditioner replacement or repair.

5) Unusual Odors

There are two types of odors to be on the lookout for: pungent and musty. A pungent or acrid odor may be the result of burned out insulation, while a musty odor is likely the result of mold growth inside your air conditioner or ductwork. Both issues command immediate attention as they can affect the health and safety of your family.

6) Frequent On & Off Cycling

Excessive cycling can be caused by a number of different issues such as incorrect sizing, faulty thermostat, or air leakage but regardless of the cause the issue should be investigated to prevent further wear and tear on system components and wasted energy usage.

7) Water Leakage

Leakage from a clogged condensate drain line can lead to water damage and mold growth and requires a call for repair, bear in mind this is only one of the many causes of water damage, and if left untreated, water damage can severely destroy your property as well as potentially your health and those around you also.
