5 Signs You Need to Repair Your Air Conditioner
Time to for Air Conditioner Repair
Are you worried about the performance of your air conditioner this summer? If you haven’t gotten it inspected within the last 12 months, it may break down. Thankfully, there are some signs you can watch out for so that you can have your HVAC system repaired by the HVAC professional at TDI Air before it completely breaks.
1. Strange Odor and Loud Sounds
Modern air conditioners should not have any smell, and they should not operate loudly enough to interfere with your conversations or enjoyment of your TV or portable devices. If your air conditioner smells hot, produces a burning smell or grinds, clanks or whistles, it’s a sure sign that it is in need of repairs in order to avoid a breakdown.
2. Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Maintaining Your Desired Indoor Air Temperature
Does your thermostat never reach the temperature programmed into your thermostat? This could be due to a coolant leak, low coolant levels or a problem with your thermostat. AN HVAC professional from TDI Air Conditioning can diagnose and repair this problem.
3. Your House Still Feels Hot and/or Stuffy
Does your entire house or just certain rooms still feel hot and stuffy? This can be due to low airflow through your vents, low coolant levels and having a unit that is too large for your home, resulting in short cycling that doesn’t completely circulate all the air. Thankfully, these are fixable problems that can be corrected by fixing coolant leaks, refilling the coolant and making sure your unit is properly sized and that the blower and condenser fans are operating correctly.
4. Your Air Conditioner Short-Cycles
Short cycling occurs when your air conditioner turns on and off within a few minutes. This can wreak havoc on your A/C bills and still leave you with a hot, stuffy and humid house. Causes of short cycling include having an oversized A/C unit, not changing your air filter, having low coolant levels and having refrigeration coils that are frozen.
5. High Utility Bill
A sure sign that your air conditioner isn’t operating within the manufacturer's specs is out-of-control summer cooling bills. This can be the result of having a dirty air filter, dirty air vents, low coolant levels and/or a broken thermostat. Our HVAC professionals at TDI Air Conditioning can inspect your A/C unit in order to determine why it is operating inefficiently and make the appropriate repairs.
