Here are 5 signs you need summer AC repair
Warm air or insufficient cooling
Probably the most obvious of summer AC repair signs is that the air coming from the AC isn’t cool, or at the very least, is not cool enough. If the air conditioner isn’t keeping the temperature comfortable, that’s a blatant warning sign that repair may be needed.
There is no such thing as a silent air conditioner, but unusual or abnormally loud noises from your AC, such screeching or rattling, are indications of a possible problem, such as a part that has come loose. Consult a skilled technician before the loose part causes further damage to your unit.
Increased utility bills
Not all summer AC problems are indicated by the evidence of your senses. Some are indicated by the cost of your utilities. If your electric bill is higher than it normally is during the summer months, that suggests that your air conditioner is not operating at peak efficiency and may be in need of a tune-up.
Maybe it’s not the temperature of the air that your AC is putting out but the volume. If you put your hand next to a vent when the air conditioner kicks on and the temperature feels cool but the flow is weak, that could be indicative of several potential problems involving the ductwork or the compressor.
Any sort of fluid leak in or around your AC unit is cause for concern. It could be refrigerant leaking, a potentially dangerous situation because of its toxicity. Even if the fluid is only water, that could lead to mold growth, which could have long-term effects on your family’s health. Don’t try to figure out what’s leaking yourself; call us for HVAC service immediately.
