As we make it through the final sweltering days of summer before temperatures finally cool, the last thing you want is for your home air conditioning to malfunction or break down. If you notice any issues with your AC system, it’s better to be on the safe side and call for a service or checkup. Otherwise, you could be left without a refuge from the heat. Here are 5 signs you need to service your home air conditioning.
It’s normal for your home air conditioning system or unit to make some level of noise, typically a quiet hum that is easy to tune out. If you notice any grinding or rattling sounds, it means that there is something wrong. It’s best to turn off the unit and call a professional to fix the issue, or further damage may be caused.
Blowing Warm Air
If warm air is blowing out of the vents of your home air conditioning system, it could be the result of a failing compressor or a blockage within the system. A professional repair and maintenance team will be able to diagnose and resolve the problem so that you can go back to having a cool and comfortable home.
Water leakage is a major sign that your air conditioning needs to be serviced. It could be a symptom of a clogged drain line, or signify something is wrong with the evaporator coils or air filters. Be sure to call an AC technician as soon as possible to prevent further issues.
A Broken Thermostat
The thermostat regulates your home air conditioning and dictates the amount of cold air the system produces. It also estimates the current temperature of your home and has the ability to automatically adjust. If your thermostat is giving inaccurate readings and nothing is wrong with the batteries, it could signify that your AC unit isn’t working properly.
High Electricity Bills
The harder your home air conditioning system works, the more energy and electricity it uses. If your unit needs repair then it may work overly hard, which could cause a spike in your electricity bills. If you notice your electricity bill has increased and you have no issue with your home’s insulation, or electricity and wiring, have your home air conditioning unit checked by a reliable service technician.
