Top Signs of Air Conditioner Failure
Summer is finally just around the corner now. When the temperatures start to rise back up, air conditioning repair in Amarillo, TX from Amarillo Air Conditioning should be a priority at the first sign of issues with your AC.
Keep an eye out for the following top signs of air conditioner failure.
You’re Not Getting Cold Air
One of the most obvious signs that your air conditioning unit is failing is that you’re not getting cold air or not getting enough of it. If you check your thermostat and see that it’s set to the desired temperature, there may be another issue with the unit itself. However, before you call for air conditioning services, try changing the temperature on the thermostat by 5 degrees. Just enough so you could feel the change in the temperature. When there’s no palpable change, it’s time to call in the pros.
Weak airflow can be an indication of a problem with your air conditioner. It may be failing if the vents are fully open and unobstructed and the airflow is very weak. In most cases, the culprit is a problem with the compressor. Luckily, regular air conditioning maintenance can help you stay on top of issues like these.
If your air conditioner leaks, the culprit is usually either the refrigerant or condensation. In either case, when your unit repeatedly leaks, you need to pay attention. But if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant, you should get an air conditioning replacement. Refrigerant is poisonous and can pose health hazards to your family and pets. To know for sure what’s leaking from your AC, contact a professional immediately.
Strange Sounds or Smells
While all air conditioning units do produce a consistent humming noise, they shouldn’t make any odd, loud, banging, squealing, or grinding noises. When you hear sounds like those, it usually means that a component has come loose or has fallen off inside your unit either over time or during the air conditioning installation.
Strange odors emanating from your air conditioner should also be cause for alarm and can mean your unit might have a mold infestation or something equally nasty like dead critters in the vents.
