Warning Signs from Your Air Conditioner
Having a working AC system when you live here is important. That is why, when your system is starting to have trouble, it is important to know what to look for so you know when to contact our professionals for AC services in Hart County, GA. Here are some warning signs that you should be aware of:
- Overly-expensive energy bills. An energy bill that keeps increasing no matter how much or how little you use your cooling system, or one that has major spikes in it, is a sign of a system in trouble. Energy bills that are getting egregiously expensive indicate an AC that is sucking up extra energy to try to bypass a problem that is making its job hard.
- Reduced airflow: Have you noticed that it is taking a ridiculously long time to cool your home, if it cools at all? If you go to check the vents or your heat pump air handler and discover the airflow is cool but weak at best, this means your system has a problem. Whether it is a filter issue or a blower fan problem, it is important to address this fast.
- Short cycling: The average cooling cycle is going to last around 15 minutes. If your system turns on and runs for less than 10 minutes, however, this isn’t a sign it is cooling things off faster; it is actually a problem known as short cycling. This can cause major problems for your system if left unaddressed for too long.
- Strange noises: Some AC systems will be quieter than others but no unit is meant to make a racket. Be wary of any strange, loud noises coming from your air conditioner such as hissing, rattling, banging, screeching, or screaming. These are all sounds created by different problems that need to be fixed ASAP.
