The last thing you want is to have problems with your AC in the summer living in Las Vegas. So how do you know if you’re having an AC compressor failure with your AC? Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to tell you a few signs so you understand if you are having any of these compressor problems.
AC Vents Not Blowing Air Hard
Having weak airflow is a great sign that you are having AC compressor failure. One thing about weak airflow, you might not even notice it for the first few days. Your air is still blowing but not enough to really cool down your home. Or it could be warmer air, but not warm enough to make you home super-hot. Just enough to not get your home temperature where you want it. When this happens, it means your AC is having a compressor issue.
AC Unit Making a Loud Banging Noise
If you hear a loud banging noise coming from your AC that is never a good sign. While ACs can make a sound when it turns on, it should never be a loud sound. If you do hear a banging sound or even a growling sound, you should call a professional to come to take a look. It could be a number of problems including an electrical component in the compressor. Which can cause the compressor to fail.
AC Refrigerant Leak
In your AC you have a compressor that will compress the refrigerant. This helps take the hot air and turn it cold. The older your AC gets the bearing can start to loosen and fluids can start to leak. If this is happening you will notice water around your HVAC, a hissing sound, or ice on your evaporator coils. If this happens and is left without being fixed, it could lead to more problems. Call a professional as soon as you notice this happening.
AC Using More Electricity & Raising Power Bill
When there is something wrong with your AC, your AC has to work harder to run and cool your house. Because it is working harder the electricity bill will go up. If you notice a drastic increase in your electrical bill there is a very high chance that something is going wrong with your AC. Call a professional to come to take a look at your system and see if that is why your bill is so high.
Tripped AC Circuit Breaker
Have you ever been in a house where you plug in your blow dryer to dry your hair and all the power goes out? Well, this is what happens when you trip your circuit breaker. Your AC unit can also cause your breaker to trip. If this is happening too often, then you need to call a professional to come to take a look. This is a great indicator that you have a compressor failure and need to get it fixed.
