When your AC unit is in need of servicing, it has several indications that you should contact a professional HVAC technician. Living in the East Valley, you do not want to mistake one of these signs and be left without an air conditioner for any amount of time. We’re covering 4 of the common signs that it is time to service your AC unit.
4 Signs Your AC Unit Needs Serviced
- Higher Energy Bills – When your air conditioning unit needs to work harder to maintain your desired temperature inside your house, the result will likely be a higher energy bill. If you are noticing your system running for an extended period of time or more than normal, you will want to have your AC unit inspected and serviced immediately. This could be a warning sign that a larger problem is coming and servicing your unit will allow you to repair it before the problem persists.
- Lack of Cool Air – A very clear indication it is time to service your AC unit is when it does not produce cool air. Your air conditioner is tasked with the job to keep you cool, not to sit there and look cool. If it is not performing the way you would like it to, a professional HVAC technician can diagnose the problem and repair it.
- Strange Smells – When you first turn your AC system on, it may have a strange smell. This is normal. If you are experiencing unusual odors from your air conditioning unit, you should have it checked out. Various smells could indicate mold growth, overheating, gas leak, or a variety of causes that are harmful to you and your family. You will need a professional to inspect and service your AC unit ASAP.
- Water Leaking – Any moisture leaking from your HVAC system can indicate a problem that should be inspected by a professional. Water around your system could indicate your drain line is broken or blocked. There is also a chance that the moisture around your AC system is refrigerant that has leaked. This can be extremely harmful to you and your family. Either way, an HVAC technician can help you identify and fix the water leak.
Depending on the severity and frequency of your AC unit’s repair needs, you may want to consider completely replacing your air conditioner. Another factor to take into account is your unit’s age when determining whether to repair or replace it. Typically, a system that is 10+ years old and requires frequent repairs are signs it may be time for a replacement.
