Signs Your AC Is in Trouble

Your air conditioner trucks on through every summer, keeps you cool on those slightly toasty days in spring, and it’s been reliable as can be. But it will run into trouble, and when it does, you need to know what to look for.

To know if you need AC service in Sanford FL as soon as possible, we’ve put together a list of classic warning signs that your AC sends your way. If you’re reading this, you’re likely suspicious that something’s wrong with your air conditioner already. Let’s help you out.

Poor Airflow

Put your hand up to one vent, then another. Do you feel a different amount of air pressure coming out? If one vent feels like the air is blowing out, and another just feels like it’s leaking out, that’s a sign that something’s either wrong with your blower motor or your ductwork. Either way, it’s costing you money and your air conditioner is working harder than it truly needs to.

Odd Noises

There are a lot of noises your air conditioner can make, but most of them are signs of trouble. Your AC is usually just operating in the background; you likely don’t even notice it anymore. That’s how it should be. If you notice noises like banging sounds, metallic screeching or wailing, or anything that’s out of the ordinary, that’s reason enough to call for repairs.

Humidity Levels Are Too High in Your Home

Humidity comes in quietly and leaves a ton of damage behind. It’s the last thing you want in your home, especially when it hits 60% RH (relative humidity). That’s when it can begin to grow mold and mildew, which will impact your indoor air quality, comfort, and health. Your AC pulls humidity out of the air, so if your home is extra humid, it could be your AC not pulling its usual weight.

Short Cycling

You hear your AC kick on, then it runs, and it shuts off. But when it does, the temperature inside your home isn’t at the target you set on the thermostat. You hear it kick on again and run for a few minutes, then shut down. Still, it’s not hitting the target mark.

That’s short cycling in a nutshell. It’s when your AC has some sort of problem that is causing it to shut down prematurely. Because the thermostat is still sending an “ON” signal, it turns on again and tries its best, but encounters that same issue. This means your AC needs to be shut off immediately before more damage occurs, and you have to contact an HVAC technician.
