Thinking of scheduling your heating system’s tune-up services may be on your mind, which is good as the summer continues to wind down in the Vegas Desert. However, living in the desert presents unpredictable use of the air conditioning system and you want to ensure it is efficiently reliable when you need it. In recent weeks, many homeowners have likely experienced a faulty AC system and are considering brushing minor, and maybe even major problems, off until next season, thinking of it as an unnecessary expense as we plunge deeper into fall. Ignoring your air conditioner’s repair needs is the worst thing you can do, and we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to stress why.
Common Early Fall Air Conditioner Problems
When it comes to the AC repairs, however, it is important to hire a professional AC technician take care of them. In many cases you need a licensed expert to handle potentially dangerous components, such as refrigerant for instance, and they can definitely spot the symptoms. Also, in order to maintain a valid warranty, repairs must only be done by a pro as well. Below are some common issues that occur towards the end of the AC season to keep an eye for.
Less Cooling Power: If the airflow is strong, but the temperature is lukewarm, there is a concern. Ductwork damage, refrigerant leaks, or overheating components are often various sources of the decrease cooling ability you are feeling. Reduced cooling efficiency is both a symptom and a problem. Ultimately, it will cause your air conditioner to work harder than it should have to in order to try and cool down the home.
Weak Airflow: You need to call in a tech when cooled air isn’t moving through your vents with the speed or power you are used to. Because this typically means that air is trapped somewhere within your system, spotting frozen coils can also point to weak airflow. On the other hand, you may have ductwork damage and conditioned air is escaping into unoccupied spaces. Though a symptom of a problem, this is also an issue that needs a resolution sooner rather than later.
Short-Cycling: Short cycling is when the air conditioning system turns on and off rapidly without ever running for very long. Because your air conditioner uses more energy turning on and turning off than it does simply running, you want your AC to run for at least 15 minutes at a time. This is a sign something is wrong.
Unusual AC Sounds: Any sound that is different from what you normally heard from routine operation is a concern. All examples of strange sounds you should not be hearing includes buzzing, humming, clanging, moaning, or hissing sounds. If in the event you notice any of these sounds, the best thing you can do for your cooling system is call in an HVAC repair pro right away. You especially need an expert with buzzing noising as it indicates an electrical problem, though any sound should be cause for a pro.
