When the air conditioner in your Florence, South Carolina, home starts showing signs that it needs to be repaired, don’t delay. Call an HVAC professional if you start noticing the following signs that your air conditioner needs repair.
Your Home Isn’t Cool
If your home isn’t cool, that’s the most obvious sign that something is amiss with your AC unit. When you turn on your air conditioning and there’s little or no airflow or the ducts don’t get cooler as the day progresses, it’s probably a sign that your AC unit needs repairs. You may notice that your home isn’t cooling down at the usual speed or that your air conditioning doesn’t even kick on.
Are you hearing strange noises coming from your AC, such as grinding or squealing? Strange sounds are not always indicative of a huge problem. Something might just need to be cleaned or tightened. Regardless, odd sounds are a good warning sign of a failing AC unit. Catch it early to save yourself money in the long run by avoiding extensive air conditioner repairs.
If the air from your AC smells musty, you may have dirty cooling coils, a clogged condensate drain, or some biological growth in your ductwork. Call in the professionals to diagnose the problem and protect your family’s health.
Leaking AC Unit
Have you noticed leakage from or around your AC unit? Two main culprits usually cause this issue. The less serious culprit could be a blocked or broken drain tube. But it could also be a sign of a more serious issue: a refrigerant leak. If you suspect leaking refrigerant, call an HVAC professional immediately.
