How to Know You Need AC Repairs
A total system breakdown isn’t the only reason to call a NATE-certified AC service technician. You may need AC repairs even though the system is still cooling your Greensboro, NC home. Running your AC when it needs repairs only makes matters worse. If you have any of these issues, schedule air conditioning services now:
You might think that poor airflow is normal for an older AC unit. Weak airflow can occur in cooling systems of all ages. It can be caused by ductwork obstructions, a clogged filter or a broken blower motor. It contributes to poor indoor air quality and drives up utility bills. Running a system with poor airflow can even cause compressor failure over time.
Air conditioners are designed to automatically balance indoor humidity levels. If your space feels sticky, your air conditioner isn’t doing its job. Leaky ductwork or a dirty evaporator coil can increase indoor humidity and decrease indoor comfort. Humid conditions can damage property while attracting unwanted mold and mildew.
Water and Refrigerant Leaks
Although air conditioners produce moisture, there shouldn’t be any liquid leaking into your home. Puddles around the indoor unit could be water or refrigerant. Water can cause ceiling leaks, structural damage and property damage. Leaking water can even create a fire hazard. Refrigerant leaks can reduce airflow, increase utility bills and undermine the performance of your air conditioner.
Foul Odors and Scary Noises
Frightful noises and unpleasant smells are always a cause for concern. Buzzing, grinding, rattling, screeching, thumping and banging all mean that something is loose, malfunctioning or broken. Foul, musty or burning odors can indicate a pest infestation in your ductwork, an electrical problem or bacterial growth inside the system.
