Before we get into the important matters, we’re not telling you that something has to be wrong with your air conditioner. If your system keeps you comfortable at an affordable price, and does so without any hiccups, then great! Your AC might in fact be in great condition. At this point, we’d suggest taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather and maybe reading our blogs for some future advice.
However, if your air conditioner is working in a less than satisfying way, then this blog post is specifically designed for you. We’re specialists in the field of air conditioning repair in Syracuse, IN, so we know how to spot a faulty AC when we see one.
We’re going to list out some common problems that homeowners often deal with in our area. If any of these problems or symptoms sound familiar, then we urge you to call us today and have them addressed.
Pay Close Attention
This is the part of the blog post that we want homeowners to be invested in. Take out a notepad or maybe an index card and write some of these things down as a checklist to have on hand. It’s a good idea to take a look around your air conditioner when you suspect something is wrong and check off any of these problems that might apply to you.
First off, what good is an air conditioner if it’s not going to keep your home reasonably comfortable at an affordable price? Your AC is set up to cool your home in the most efficient manner possible, and if you’re noticing a steady increase in your bills, or a high amount of electricity being sucked up by the system, then something is clearly wrong. Our professionals can get to the bottom of it, and don’t forget to schedule maintenance!
Strange Noises or Foul Odors
Banging, clanging, rattling, buzzing, hissing, groaning, shrieking … All of these are sounds that signal something is wrong. If you’re hearing anything that is loud or makes you uncomfortable coming from your air conditioner, then be sure to call us ASAP.
This includes foul odors as well. Sometimes an air conditioner can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold because it starts getting clogged up dealing with excess humidity.
A Clogged Air Filter
Your air filter should be changed every 1–3 months. If you’re noticing that it gets clogged up earlier or that you’re starting to forget about it, then you’re likely going to see a whole host of problems from higher energy bills to a stressed-out system. Make sure you clear out the air filter on a regular basis so you can keep the system from running poorly.
It’s Not Cooling Your Home
Let’s be honest: if your air conditioner isn’t keeping your home comfortable then what’s the point of paying for it? An AC should be able to realistically keep temperatures in your home cool and comfortable. If it’s not, no matter how new or amazing it is, you need to have it repaired so it can do what it was designed to do.
