5 Ways to Tell Your AC Needs Repairs

The heat is here and while this can make lounging by a pool or enjoying time by the lake more pleasant, it doesn’t mean that we want to be overheated all day long. There are days when it is just uncomfortable to go outside which makes it more important to ensure that your space inside your home can provide relief.

Your air conditioning in Hart County, GA is going to be the star of the show for the next several months. It is best if your AC is able to function effectively and efficiently throughout the summer. To ensure this, it is vital to know when to reach out for repairs to help a struggling air conditioner.

Watch out for the following 5 warning signs to figure out when you should schedule repairs with our expert team.

1. The system has started to short cycle

The air conditioner turns on but only runs for a few brief minutes before shutting back down again, only to turn on again within a few minutes. This is known as short cycling and it is both a symptom of a problem and a cause of more trouble. If your AC has been running in shorter and short cycles, it is worthwhile to have a technician check it before it breaks down.

2. You are noticing new, concerning sounds

You know what your AC sounds like. You hear the click of the system turn on, maybe you hear the ductwork pop lightly as air begins to fill it and, of course, you hear that cool whoosh of air. But aside from this, your AC shouldn’t make too many other noises. Reach out for repairs if you hear any sounds like:

  • Rattling
  • Clanging
  • Hissing
  • Screeching
  • Bubbling

3. The cooling in the house is uneven

Maybe one room of the house never seems to cool off properly. Or perhaps there are hot and cold spots throughout the house. Uneven cooling is a problem that may be caused by a variety of different issues in your system and should be addressed by a professional technician.

4. There is weak airflow coming from the vents or air handlers

When your air conditioner is running, check the airflow coming from the vents or air handlers around the house. If you notice that there is one or more that is emitting weak airflow then it is time to talk to a technician to address the problem. In some cases, an air filter change is enough to address this problem but a deeper issue may require repairs.

5. Your AC is causing higher energy bills

Lastly, keep tabs on those electrical bills! If you notice increased monthly dues from using your air conditioner, it may be a good idea to talk to an expert. If you’ve had your yearly maintenance check and checked your filter, then those spikes in your energy use may indicate a repair need.

Whenever you need a technician to repair your air conditioner, you can come to our team for expert service.
