How Do I Know if My Air Conditioner Needs Repair?
Once the summer weather arrives, most people turn to their air conditioning system to cool down when the outdoor temperatures start to soar. Effective, efficient air conditioning helps you and your family stay comfortable and relaxed, and can even help you sleep better. So, making sure that it’s in good working order is important.
Mayybe you’ve been thinking that your home’s air conditioning system isn’t working as well as it should be. Maybe you’ve noticed that you’re just not as comfortable as you used to be, or perhaps your system is older and has needed a lot of repair in recent years. Or, you may not exactly be able to pinpoint what’s going on with your AC, but you know it’s just not working properly.
What are some of the signs that my AC is having problems?
Many people wait until their air conditioning system has completely stopped working before calling an HVAC professional for help. However, this is not recommended, because it can be a more difficult – and more expensive – fix. Usually, your AC unit will give you some sort of indication that it’s in trouble – and when you first notice any of the signs below, it’s time to give your cooling company a call:
- Your air conditioning system is making unusual noises, like grinding or squealing.
- You notice an odd odor coming from your AC, such as melting plastic or a musty smell
- Your utility bills have been increasing without a good explanation
- The air coming from your system feels warm
- Your AC system doesn’t seem to be helping with your home humidity levels
- You have to keep turning the thermostat down in order to cool your home
- There is ice buildup on the outdoor (condenser) component of your AC unit
What can I do if I need a new air conditioning system?
Sometimes, over the course of troubleshooting an air conditioning system, it is discovered that the system is either beyond repair, or repairs will not be cost-effective. In these instances, your technician will explain to you why repairs aren’t feasible, and talk to you about your options. While nobody wants to think about the expense of a new AC system, the good news is, you could end up saving money in the long run.
If you have an air conditioning system that’s more than 10 years old, has gone out of warranty, and has needed frequent repairs, it’s likely that you’ll ultimately save money by replacing your system. Chances are, your old air conditioning system is not nearly as efficient as a newer model, and it may even use a refrigerant that’s not readily available and expensive to replace. If you need a new AC system, Ables, Inc. will help you find a system that meets your budget and your needs. Plus, financing is available for qualified buyers.
