5 Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

5 Signs Your AC Needs Repair

Keeping your air conditioner in good working order will keep you cool during the hot summer months. But how do you know if your AC unit needs repair or service? Below are five signs to watch for.

Unusual Sounds

Any loud sounds inside your AC unit should prompt a call to a professional AC repair company. Noises such as scraping, grinding, or squealing could indicate a loose or malfunctioning component. You will want to have your unit inspected before any further damage occurs.

An Odd Smell

When you turn on your AC unit and are greeted with a strange smell, the cause could be either mold or a damaged wire. Have this looked at right away to keep you and your loved ones healthy, safe, and comfortable.

Rising Electric Bill

If you haven't increased your air conditioning use, but your bill is starting to skyrocket, it's time to have your AC unit assessed. Something in your system is working overtime to keep you cool. A professional AC repair technician can get your system running at an optimal level again.

Any Leaks

A leak from your unit could be serious. In some instances, it may just be a buildup of condensation. However, it could also be Freon, which is a dangerous substance to breathe. Have any leaks diagnosed as soon as possible.

Blowing Warm Air

Since an air conditioner's purpose is to keep you cool, the last thing you want is to have warm air greet you instead. If this happens, call your local HVAC repair company. They will locate the problem so you can cool off again.
