Central AC Repair & Maintenance
Waddell residents know how hot it can get during the summer months and how essential their air conditioners are for daily comfort.
That’s why it’s important to become familiar with the signs that your air conditioner is in trouble to call for repairs before it fails when you need it most.
Read on to find out some of the most common signs that your air conditioner is nearing the end of its lifespan. If you notice any of these issues, it’s time to call a pro.
If you get lukewarm air blowing out from the registers, no matter how much you adjust the thermostat, it means there’s a problem. It could be a malfunctioning thermostat, low refrigerant levels, a damaged coil, or something else.
If you can’t get the cold air you want, call a professional to diagnose what’s going on as soon as possible.
Besides keeping your house cool, your air conditioner also regulates the humidity. When humidity levels get out of control, you feel sticky and uncomfortable, and it creates the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow.
If your air conditioner can’t maintain the proper humidity levels, it could be too big for the space. Oversized AC systems do poor jobs at controlling temperatures and humidity because they cycle on and off too rapidly to be effective.
Another common cause of high humidity is when your air conditioner is too old and can’t handle the load anymore. At this point, the best option is probably to replace the unit.
Loud Noise During Operation
It’s common to hear your air conditioner make noise during startup and shutdown. But, it shouldn’t make noise when it’s running. If you hear grinding, grating, or squealing sounds, shut the system off and call for repairs before it causes irreparable damage.
Many AC problems can cause low or weak airflow, including clogged filters, dirty air ducts, or compressor failure. The quickest, most effective way to diagnose the problems is calling a pro for an evaluation.
The best way to avoid these and other air conditioner problems is to keep your system well-maintained by a professional HVAC technician.
Routine maintenance allows you to fix minor problems now before they get out of hand and require expensive repairs or system replacement down the road.
