You probably turned on your air conditioner weeks ago to keep your home cool. Well, as we move further into the summer temperatures are only going up meaning you’ll need it working in prime condition for when things get really hot and humid outside. Of course, there’s a chance that without realizing it, an AC can go out of commission before its time due to some small mishap or other setback which is why we put together this list so homeowners will know what warning signs they should be looking for during their monthly check-ups with HVAC professionals.
When you’re faced with a heatwave, it can be hard to maintain the temperature in your home. It’s important that if you have an air conditioning system or heating pump, they are well-maintained and serviced regularly by experts who know what needs checking for maintenance. That way when there is trouble brewing, these professionals will know how to help before things go too far! For many people during hot seasons like summer months on top of being uncomfortable because of high temperatures outside their homes also need some relief from soaring indoor temps as well which could mean either installing central A/C units indoors although this may not always promise enough coolness at all times especially while sleeping but does offer more constant cooling throughout one’s daily.
If you see any of the following signs, you likely need an air conditioner repair:
You have warm airflow
If you’re feeling warm air coming out of your vents, make sure the thermostat is on cooling mode and set it to a lower temperature than what’s currently in your home. If that doesn’t work, an issue with restricted airflow or the compressor may be causing this problem. In either case we recommend leaving HVAC repairs and maintenance up to professionals rather than attempting DIY fixes as these systems are complicated and require careful calibration for optimal performance.
Your unit makes way too unusual noise
The sound of your Air conditioner is one thing you don’t want to take for granted. If it’s making a loud noise, this can mean that loose pieces are coming off the unit which could lead to costly repairs if not attended too soon. Whether or not you’re hearing banging, screeching, clinking noises from your A/C – these types of sounds aren’t normal and should be dealt with asap before any major damage takes place.
Uneven cooling throughout your home
The more time you spend in your home, the better acquainted you’ll be with its temperature. Some areas of a house may feel warmer than others and this is usually due to poor insulation or an air conditioner that needs repair.
AC Water is leaking
If you have an air conditioner that is leaking water, it should be fixed as soon a possible. If the condensate on your AC unit isn’t working properly and there’s water seeping inside of your home, then don’t take any chances with mold or mildew starting to grow!
If you can feel the cool air coming from your vents, but it just seems to be blowing too lightly for comfort — that’s a problem. Your fan or motor may need some fixing up before winter hits.
Home won’t get cool
If you notice that your AC unit is on but it doesn’t cool properly, this may be a sign of low refrigerant. If the air coming out from your vents feels warm or hot and isn’t cooling as expected by any means (such as when set to “cool), then there could be an issue with the system’s refrigerant levels.
AC coil is frozen
A frozen coil can occur for various reasons. Dirty air filters or a refrigerant leak are two of the most common causes, but an improperly installed A/C system could also be to blame if not properly sealed off at installation time. These installations usually happen without detection because they come from within your home and don’t produce any noise-producing symptoms until it’s too late!
