Summer is almost here! And that means your air conditioner needs to go to work. But, how do you know when your AC is in need of service or repair? Sometimes the signs are subtle. We want to make sure you know the most common signs that your air conditioner could use service or repair so we can help you avoid uncomfortable days and sleepless nights.
- Slower to Cool.
You will probably notice this sign right away. If your air conditioner just doesn’t seem to be cooling things as fast as it used to, there could be a couple of things going on. Your air conditioner could simply be low on coolant, which is an easy fix, or there could be other things going on like internal rust or corrosion depending on how old your unit is and where it “lives”.
- Weak Airflow.
If you notice a decline in the airflow of your AC unit, it could be your air filters. Clogged air filters reduce the airflow in your home and put unnecessary strain on your entire AC unit.
Overall, you should not be hearing much if anything from your AC system as air conditioners are made to run quietly and efficiently. If you start hearing things from your air conditioning system, you could have a problem with your fan belt which can compromise your system’s efficiency.
One of our qualified technicians can quickly evaluate your entire AC system and repair small problems before they lead to a breakdown. Repair or service when you see these types of issues can prevent costly replacements later. They extend the life of your AC system and help keep your utility costs down.
