Signs You Need AC Repair
Your air conditioner works day and night during the summer to keep your family comfortable. The last thing you want is for the system to fail when you need it most.
Fortunately, sudden AC failure is rare. Most systems give out clues warning you that something isn’t right.
Here are the most common signs indicating you need air conditioner repair.
If you notice the air coming out of your AC vents is warm or not as cool as you’re used to, it could be an issue with the thermostat or the compressor. Whatever the issue, it’s best to call for AC repair as soon as possible before the problem gets worse.
All air conditioners depend on refrigerants to pull heat out of the air and keep you cool. If you see excess condensation or moisture leaking, it means your air conditioner’s cooling system is leaking. Leaking refrigerant can be dangerous, so call for immediate help as soon as possible.
It’s normal for an HVAC system to make noise during startup and shutdown; however, if the system makes grinding, squeaking, or squealing noises during operation, it’s not something to ignore. Loose belts or worn-out parts could lead to system failure if you don’t fix them as soon as possible.
Higher Energy Bills
If you’ve owned the same air conditioner for years, you know to expect an increase in your energy bills during the summer months. However, if the increase is significantly more than what you’re used to, it could mean your system isn’t functioning efficiently. An inefficient air conditioner doesn’t just impact your energy bills, and if left untreated, it can lead to increased wear and tear and premature system failure.
Musty or moldy odors coming out of your AC’s vents could mean you have mold that’s built up in your ducts or the condensate drain is clogged. Also, be aware of burning odors because that indicates frayed or damaged wiring.
When functioning normally, your AC undergoes routine on and off cycling. However, if the system constantly turns on then off – also called short cycling – it means there’s a problem. Frequent cycling puts stress on the system causing it to wear out more quickly than it should.
If you notice any of these or any other unusual actions from your air conditioner, call the pros at Gresham Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible.
3 Top Reasons to Get an AC Tune Up
When hot weather arrives, you want to be sure your air conditioner is up to the task of keeping you and your family comfortable all summer long. And, just like taking your car to the mechanic every 3,000 miles for a checkup, it’s wise to call an AC contractor for annual AC inspection and repair.
Here are the three top reasons why you shouldn’t ignore an AC tune up.
It Maximizes Efficiency
An air conditioner that runs efficiently keeps you cooler while doing less work and minimizes wear and tear on the system.
It Lowers Your Energy Bills
When your vehicle is working correctly, it uses less fuel to run, which holds true for your air conditioner. When your system is in top form, it uses less energy to do the same amount of work, lowering your energy bills in the process.
It Prevents Expensive Repairs
When you have a professional inspect and tune up your air conditioner, they often find minor problems that could grow into something causing system failure and costly repairs if ignored.
