It’s true that we haven’t quite begun to see the effects of summer, but local homeowners know that it is only a matter of time before high temperatures are upon is. This makes now the perfect time to check your air conditioning system for damage. You still have time to have repairs done now before the real heat hits.
Be sure to take notice of any warning signs that may indicate problems with your air conditioner. And when you do spot a problem, turn off your system and call in a repair service as quickly as you can. Attempting to fix an issue on your own can actually do more harm than good to the system, and continuing to run the system despite a problem can do the same.
So what are some signs to watch out for?
Lack of Cooling
This is perhaps the most obvious sign that something is amiss with your AC system. The flow of air may seem warmer than it should be, which negatively impacts the system’s efficiency and forces it to spend a lot more time than it should cooling your home. Eventually this can lead to breakdowns in other components in addition to major repairs.
Decreased Air Flow
You might notice that the air itself is cool, but it’s not moving through your ductwork as quickly as it should. In this scenario, the effect is the same as if there were no cold air blowing through the system. Your air conditioner will need to work harder, your bills will go up, and a more serious breakdown can occur.
Increased Utility Bills
In many cases, the best indicator that something is wrong with your air conditioner is not from the system itself but from your energy bills. If you notice a sudden spike in your costs—particularly if you haven’t used your AC any more often than normal—then chances are there is something seriously wrong that a professional technician should take a look at.
