Common Indications Your AC Needs Repair
Just as you get your car checked out when it’s making an odd sound, you should do the same with your AC. If you feel your AC is not working properly for one reason or another, it’s important to have it looked at by a professional. A small issue can quickly turn into a larger, more costly problem that requires AC replacement and installation services. If you’ve experienced any of the following issues, contact a Tim’s Southern Air professional to make sure your AC doesn’t stop working when you need it most.
Little Or No Airflow
Most people are familiar with the amount of air that comes out of their HVAC system’s vents. If you start noticing less air coming from your system than usual, there could be a blockage in the vent system or something more serious – like an issue with the motor. No matter what the specific problem is, it’s important to have it looked at before your system stops working entirely. By calling Tim’s Southern Air, we can check your AC and ensure it produces the correct amount of airflow to keep your family comfortable.
Warm Or Humid Air
Although air is coming through your vent system correctly, it isn’t working properly if the air is warm. First, you’ll want to check your thermostat to make sure it’s set to cool and not just set on ‘fan’. Maybe someone in the house accidentally changed it. If it is set to cool, set the thermostat significantly lower than usual to see if the summer weather is simply taking its toll on your home.
If the air coming out of your vents continues to stay warm, one of the components of your AC system isn’t doing its job properly and needs to be fixed. Additionally, your AC system is designed to keep your home’s humidity levels in a comfortable range. If you notice the air in your house is just as sticky as it is outdoors, you may be in need of a home AC repair.
Your AC might have to work harder to keep your house cool during the summer in Lafayette. However, if you notice your AC cycling on and off frequently without bringing your home to the temperature you’ve set it to, your system is starting to malfunction. If the problem is caught early, a simple tune-up might do the trick. If allowed to persist, you may be in need of a new AC altogether.
Strange Odors & Noises
You know your AC system better than anyone in regards to how loudly it operates. While older systems tend to be louder than newer ones, they should still not make humming, screeching or knocking noises. If you notice your AC beginning to make one of these noises, it’s best to get it checked out before a component fully malfunctions or is in need of larger AC repair services.
Similarly, with strange odors, your AC system should not be producing any odor other than dusty or fresh air. Any foul, smoky or moldy smells indicate the need for an AC unit repair. This is especially true because some smells could be caused by a dangerous source like mold or gases that could be harmful to breathe in for long periods of time.
We all know that our energy bills are going to fluctuate in the summer as we try to keep our homes comfortable against the simmering heat outside. However, your energy bill shouldn’t ever have a sudden unexplained spike! If you suspect something is sucking energy from your home, your AC could be the culprit. Let a professional evaluate your unit’s performance and make repairs or adjustments to get your efficiency back on track.
Although condensation can form on the outside of your AC unit, there should never be enough liquid to pool on the floor. If you see an unidentified liquid under your AC, proceed with caution. Not only could it be a water leak from your unit, but it could also be refrigerant leaking from inside. *Warning! Refrigerant is extremely dangerous to those who aren’t certified to handle it safely!* Contact an HVAC expert to ensure your system is running properly and safely.
