If your air conditioner needs repairing it should be carried out as soon as practically possible. The longer the system is operated without being repaired, the more it can be further damaged, and this will make the repairs more expensive. Identifying the warning signs that a repair in necessary, can be easy in certain circumstances and far more subtle in others. Understanding these four warnings can be crucial in seeking professional advice earlier.
The Treated Air Isn’t as Cool as it Should be:
You may notice that the treated cool air that you’ve paid good money for is not as cool as it used to be. Even turning the temperature right down and running it at full blast will not rectify the problem. When this occurs, it’s a sure sign that your system is not working as intended and you will need to seek professional advice.
The Thermostat is Not Working Correctly:
The problems that you’re experiencing may not be originating in your air conditioning equipment. Sometimes, the thermostat can develop a fault, and the cooling performance may become erratic. There may be areas in your home that are cold and others where the temperature is unchanged. The sensors in the thermostat can be affected by nearby hot lamps or sunshine from windows and provide incorrect information to your air conditioning system. If this is not the case, the thermostat may need to be repaired or changed for a new smart and more efficient thermostat.
The Airflow is Poor:
A common fault that is reported is a weak or total lack of airflow coming from the air conditioning vents. When this happens, it could mean that the compressor in the system is starting to fail. However, if this happens and you have cold areas in certain areas of your house and no treated air in other rooms, it could be a ductwork issue. The ducts may be blocked at a certain point, and the airflow could be reduced as a result. In both of these cases, professional advice will be required, and the cause can be quickly determined.
Odd Sounds in the Home:
An air conditioning system is designed to run quietly, and any odd sounds are a cause for concern. Typically sounds of failing components, include squealing, grinding and grating. These noises are a warning that some components are starting to fail and they could be affecting other parts of the system. Leaving the problem until later will make the inevitable repair more costly, and in extreme cases, it could even result in a total system replacement.
