What are some of the signs that my AC system might need repairs?

Many people suspect their air conditioning system their air conditioner might need repairs, but don’t act until the system breaks down entirely.

If you notice any of the signs below, you should call Ables, Inc. right away so we can help you get the repairs you need.

  • No cool air or blowing warm air instead of cold. This can indicate a range of issues, including a broken compressor or a refrigerant leak.
  • Poor airflow or insufficient airflow. The good news is, this can often be an easy enough fix because it generally occurs when your filter needs changing. It can also mean that your ducts are blocked, or your fan is malfunctioning.
  • Thermostat problems. While this is not a problem with the system, a thermostat that’s not working properly can cause you to be uncomfortable and can make your system work harder. A faulty thermostat can cause your unit to cycle on and off frequently or not turn on at all.
  • Any water or moisture leaking from the unit. Moisture where it shouldn’t be, or water leaks can indicate a problem with the drain tube or a refrigerant leak.
  • Strange sounds or odors. Most air conditioning systems make some noise, but if you notice unusual sounds or odd odors coming from your system it can mean that something is broken or loose, or mold is growing in your system.
  • Unusually high electric bills. We all know that air conditioning units require energy to operate. But if your bill is high for no good reason, it may suggest that your unit is not running efficiently and may need maintenance or replacement.
  • High humidity levels. Air conditioning systems are not dehumidifiers, but they do help pull some of the moisture from your air. If you notice that the air in your home feels clammy, it may mean that your unit is not removing enough moisture from the air and may need repair or adjustment.
  • An aging system that needs frequent, costly repairs. It’s likely that your system is nearing the end of its lifespan and may need to be replaced While repairing an older system is possible, check with your HVAC contractor to be sure it’s the most cost-effective solution.
