8 Signs Your AC Unit May Need Repair or Replacement:
1. Poor Airflow - This is a common sign your AC unit is not working efficiently. A blockage may be preventing air from moving through your home’s ductwork. 2. Strange Noises - Most air conditioners make some sort of noise as they start up and shut down, but loud, sudden or unusual noises (grinding or whistling) can be a surefire sign of a problem with your cooling system. 3. Frequent Cycling - Your AC should go through relatively routine cooling cycles regardless of the weather. While you can expect your cooling system to turn on more frequently on the hottest days, it shouldn’t cycle on and off constantly. 4. Unpleasant Odors - Powerful or foul smells from your air conditioning vents could mean that the wire insulation has burned out. Musty smells generally indicate that there is mold inside your unit or ductwork which must be taken care of as soon as possible.
5. Increasing Electricity Bills - Although your HVAC consumes the largest amount of electricity in your home, if you see major increases in your electricity bills compared to last season, there’s a chance your air conditioning unit needs to be inspected. 6. Air is Not Cold - Feeling room temperature or warm air coming from your air conditioner is a sure sign that you need to call in a technician to analyze your need for AC repair. 7. High Cooling Bills - If you notice a spike in your energy bills, you should have your AC unit looked at. Since your air conditioner is one of the largest consumers of energy in the home, any issues with it may present itself in higher energy use, and therefore a larger bill. 8. Moisture in Strange Places - Any moisture that is detected due to an issue with your AC unit should be addressed immediately to prevent mold and mildew from forming. Your air conditioner is designed to be dry at all times. Leaks can be the result of a blocked or broken condensate drain and they require prompt repair.
