How to Tell It’s Time for AC Repairs
Believe or not, many customers are reluctant to call for repairs unless they’re absolutely certain something is wrong with their air conditioner. Because of this, we feel it’s important to educate you about the most common signs something is amiss with your AC. While a unit that doesn’t power on is a clear indication that you need repairs, there are subtler issues that, if left alone, could lead to extensive repairs or the need for a premature replacement.
Our Seattle AC repair specialists suggest calling us if:
- You are paying more money each month for your utility bills: Leaky ductwork, an internal problem, or a faulty thermostat can all result in your air conditioner operating less efficiently. This means it has to work harder to keep your property cool, thus making your bills skyrocket.
- You only feel warm air coming from your vents: First, check to make sure you didn’t accidentally set your thermostat to the wrong temperature. If that’s not the case, you probably have an internal issue and need your air conditioner inspected by a professional.
- Your property is experiencing higher humidity: Although not its primary function, your air conditioner is responsible for regulating the humidity inside your home or commercial property. In addition to warm and sticky air, higher humidity means that there is excess moisture in the air, and it can lead to mold and mildew growth. For your safety, it’s important that you have this issue addressed as soon as possible.
- Your unit has poor airflow: Unfortunately, there are many things that can cause poor airflow to occur. We will have to perform a through inspection to determine whether the issue is due to a clogged air filter, a problem with the blower, frozen evaporator coils, leaking ductwork, or blocked air ducts.
- You notice a ton of moisture surrounding your unit: While condensation is normal, excessive levels of it is not. Any excess moisture or pooling water could indicate that you have leaking refrigerant or a clogged drain tube.
- Your unit makes strange noises: It’s normal for an air conditioner to make subtle noise as it operates. However, if it begins to make noticeable screeching, squealing, grinding, groaning, or scraping noises, it is a clear sign that something needs to be repaired. These noises can be due to a malfunctioning compressor, a refrigerant leak, or a lack of lubrication.
- Your thermostat is malfunctioning: Sometimes, the issues with your air conditioner are actually with the thermostat. If you’re experiencing hot and cold spots throughout your home, your unit won’t shut off, or if it refuses to start, it could be due to an issue with the thermostat.
- Your unit is producing foul odors: If you smell anything burning or a musky smell, it could be due to an issue with your AC. Burnt wires or mold growth contribute to such smells.
- Your unit frequently cycles: Air conditioners are designed to turn off when the temperature in your property reaches the set one on the thermostat. However, when something is wrong, it will continue to cycle.
