Running into a problem with your air conditioner in the middle of a sweltering summer day is never fun. Although AC problems are almost inevitable, we want you to remember that you don’t have to wait until your system stops working entirely to turn to us. Here are a few signs that indicate you need air conditioning repair sooner rather than later:
- Poor air flow–If the air flow coming from your vents is weak, your air conditioner’s compressor could be failing. However, if air flow problems are present in some rooms but not in others, the issue could reside in your ductwork. Regardless of what’s happening, you need air conditioning repair if air flow has become an issue.
- Thermostat issues–In some cases, the need for air conditioning repair arises not because of the unit itself, but because of the thermostat controlling the temperature. One way to tell if you’re having thermostat problems is if some rooms in your home are cold while others are warm.
- Lukewarm air–At some point, you might notice that the air coming out of your vents isn’t very cold, even if you have the thermostat set very low. When this time comes, there’s a good chance that replacing your AC system is in your future.
- Weird sounds–Grating, squealing, or grinding sounds coming from your air conditioner suggest that something’s wrong inside your AC unit. Failure to get this problem taken care of right away can result in a complete breakdown.
