With summer season coming to an end, thinking of scheduling your heating system’s tune-up services may be on your mind, which is good. However, you probably have experienced needing an air conditioning system a lot these last few months. When there is still a need for the air conditioner itself, a sudden breakdown or huge repair is the last thing you need. Well before they force your system to shut down, most air conditioning repairs show symptoms. Since many homeowners are projecting the end of summer, all too often they will ignore the need for air conditioning repairs. With this in mind, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to discuss why this is a bad idea. Keep in mind that trained and experienced professionals are the only ones who should repair and inspect your faulty air conditioner. Especially when it comes to refrigerant, in many cases you need a licensed expert to handle potentially dangerous components and can definitely spot the symptoms. Below are several common signs to issues that develop towards the end of summer.
AC Short Cycling
When an air conditioning system turns on and off rapidly without ever running for very long is what short cycling is. You want your AC to run for at least 15 minutes at a time since your air conditioner uses more energy turning on and turning off than it does simply running. It’s usually a sign of something seriously wrong, otherwise.
AC Is Barely Cooling
The air seems lukewarm, though the airflow seems strong. Factors that contribute to a decreased ability to cool your living space include refrigerant leaks, overheating components, or ductwork damage. Being both a symptom of a problem and a problem in itself, reduced cooling is similar to reduced airflow. In order to keep you cool, which is inefficient, it will ultimately cause your air conditioner to work harder than it should have to.
Weird Noise from AC
Anything that’s outside of normal of what you typically hear coming from your air conditioner. Moaning, buzzing, humming, clanging, or hissing sounds are all examples of strange sounds you should be hearing. The best thing you can do for your cooling system is call in an HVAC repair pro right away if in the event you notice any of these sounds. Since some noises can indicate a particularly dangerous problem, such as buzzing indicates an electrical problem, you especially need an expert.
When cooled air isn’t moving through your vents with the speed or power you are used to, there is a problem. The coils can result in a freeze since this typically means that air is trapped somewhere within your system. An alternative scenario is that you have ductwork damage and conditioned air is escaping into unoccupied spaces. It is a problem on its own as it won’t be able to keep you cool as reducing airflow is not only a symptom of a problem.
