4 Signs Your AC Needs Repairs ASAP

Sometimes it can seem like AC repair needs pop up overnight, but this isn’t exactly the case. Usually if you pay attention, you can identify the early signs of air conditioner repair needs and get them addressed before they become major problems.

When you do think something is wrong, give our team a call for central AC repair in Lake Mary. You can keep reading to learn more about four red flags that mean your air conditioner needs a repair appointment as soon as you can schedule one. Prioritizing service now is the best way to keep your air conditioner, working efficiently for a long time to come.

Loud Noises

It’s true that your air conditioner may not be completely silent when it is operating. For example, you may hear a clicking sound when it turns on for a cycle and the gentle whirring of the fan or airflow whooshing through the vents. But your AC should never produce loud or obnoxious noises as a part of regular operation.

If you hear a persistent rattling, a component may be loose or the ductwork may need to be re-secured. If you hear a loud knocking or banging, a large component inside of your AC unit may be loose. If you hear hissing or bubbling, you may have a refrigerant leak in a portion of the lines.

Unusual Operation

Sometimes your air conditioner can operate differently, even if it isn’t making any loud noises. An example of this would be your air conditioner turning on and staying on without ever cycling back off for a break. Your air conditioner was not designed to turn on and stay on for extended periods of time.

Or maybe your air conditioner is turning on and off every few minutes without ever staying on long enough to complete a cooling cycle. This can result in your home being very humid. Even if your air conditioner is able to blow cool air out into your home, it’s not able to complete the cycle and completely remove humidity from the air.

Persistent Repair Needs

Consider it a red flag if you have to call us constantly for repair needs. Even if the problems are relatively minor and inexpensive, frequent repairs can mean that your system is reaching the end of its lifespan. You may be replacing some of the components with newer pieces, but meanwhile, the rest of the system is aging.

High Energy Costs

Monitor your energy bills for significant changes. If your energy bills are steadily creeping up month after month without ever fluctuating back down, your air conditioner could be to blame. The same is true if you see a sudden spike in your energy bill without an explanation. There are plenty of things in your house that use electricity, but your air conditioner has arguably the biggest consumption of energy.
