4 Signs You Need A/C Repair
Does it seem like your air conditioning system needs some professional repair work performed on it? Despite the fact that the system is still running, your A/C can often send you signs it’s time to have an expert look at it. Below we list a few signs you should keep an eye out for.
Higher Home Cooling Costs
Whenever the cost to cool your home goes up, it should be a sign that something isn’t working right. Because A/C units run on electricity, this means you should monitor your monthly electric bills. Electric bills should increase during the summer months when you finally start using your air conditioner. However, those costs should not be above the usual costs during the summer months.
The Unit Blows Warmer Air
If your air conditioner is blowing air out that isn’t cool, it’s a problem. For one, it might indicate you have a broken compressor. Additionally, it could be a potential leak in the refrigerant line. Both of these problems are things we can easily repair and the work might be less than you’d expect it to be. However, you will have to address the issue before you’re able to use your system at full capacity.
Higher Levels of Humidity
One of the biggest things an air conditioner does in humid states like Ohio is that they pull humidity from the air in your home to provide that cool comfort you depend on. If you are noticing water pooling around your windows or you notice a sticky feeling to the air in your home, it’s a good sign that your air conditioner isn’t functioning properly.
There’s Moisture Near the Equipment
If there’s moisture or leaks around your A/C, you probably have a problem. Although it could be a minor problem like a block in the drain tube that drains condensation from the unit. This isn’t an emergency. However, you will want to fix it to prevent mold growth. On the other hand, sometimes moisture build-up can indicate a refrigerant leak, which is something serious. In either case, homeowners should address moisture issues quickly to prevent further problems.
General Air Conditioner Questions & Answers
Why is my AC freezing up?
Most A/C freeze-ups are because of a lack of airflow to the evaporator coils, or a lack of refrigerant in the unit. If your A/C is freezing up, we suggest shutting the system down immediately to avoid causing damage to your expensive A/C compressor. Give us a call if you don’t figure out what’s causing the freeze-up.
When should I replace my home cooling system?
If your residential A/C unit is 10 years old or older than 10 years, you should at least start to plan for AC replacement in the near future. Usually, AC units don’t last longer than 15 to 20 years of usage in best-case scenarios. They most certainly don’t last as long as the typical furnace. Signs an A/C unit is outdated or needs to be replaced soon include increases in home cooling costs, frequent repair calls and inadequate performance.
What do I do if my A/C isn’t working?
If your home cooling system isn’t operating, the first thing you should look at is the unit’s power source. After checking that, check the thermostat and the system controls. If all this is in working order and it’s not the source of the problem, make sure you don’t have a clogged air filter. If checking these areas does not resolve the problem and your air conditioner still isn’t working like it needs to, give us a call so we can discuss options to resolve the issue.
