It’s common for appliances to require repair at some point in time. The older an appliance is, the more repairs and care they may need. This especially goes for your HVAC System maintenance and repair. Watch for these 6 signs you may notice about your AC.
1. Warm Airflow
An air conditioner is not doing its job is cool air is not flowing through its vents. No one wants to be without a properly functioning AC unit, especially during the sultry Texas summer. Warm airflow or no airflow at all, even when the AC is on full blast, is an indication your unit needs to be repaired. Warm airflow is a sign your AC unit’s compressor has failed or your Freon levels are extremely low.
2. Insufficient Airflow
Insufficient airflow is a sign your AC unit’s compressor is failing. Your AC may provide cool air, but it is not enough for you to notice or cool your home. In many instances, some rooms in your home will be cooler than others. Insufficient airflow is also a sign of trouble with your duct work.
3. Peculiar Odors
Acrid or pungent odors coming from your AC unit is an implication the unit’s wire insulation is burning out or has already burned out. If you notice a musty smell coming from your AC, this means mold is growing and thriving within the unit. Mold in your AC is an emergency situation that needs to be addressed immediately to prevent health concerns, such as respiratory problems.
4. Problems with Your Thermostat
Do you notice one or more rooms in your home are much cooler than others? The cause of this issue is a problem with the thermostat. Thermostat issues can make living in your home uncomfortable due to extremely warm or cool temperatures throughout your home. When this issue occurs, the thermostat on your AC unit needs to be repaired.
5. Uncommon Noises
Your unit should run smoothly with little to no sounds. Noises such as grinding, squealing, and grating are not normal sounds your AC should make. These noises imply there are problems within the unit. Choosing to wait to have your unit serviced by Texas Air Tech can result in expensive repairs due to a complete AC unit breakdown.
6. Leaks and Moisture
In serious instances, moisture and leaks often collect and occur around an AC unit. Moisture and leaks are caused by an issue with refrigerant and could cause serious health concerns. In less serious instances, leaks and moisture are a sign the drain tube in the unit is blocked or broken.
