Signs Your AC is in Need of Repairs
The sooner you catch an issue with your air conditioner, the quicker – and potentially cheaper – the repairs can be. Many issues with your unit become steadily worse over time, so it's best to get them fix early on to prevent further damage from occurring. Some issues, like blowing warm air are easy to identify. Some other things to look out for include:
- Strange noises: If you ever notice banging, buzzing, grinding, or other noises you're not used to hearing when your air conditioner is running, there's a good chance that a part is either broken or close to it.
- Strange smells: This is most common the first time you turn on your AC for the year, and is typically caused by microbial growths or mold. If you notice any strange smell, especially burning coming from your unit, give us a call ASAP to take care of it.
- Increasing utility bills: Over time, your air conditioner's internal parts will steadily wear down, decreasing its energy efficiency. Give us a call to schedule a tune-up to keep your unit in top condition.
- Leaking water or other liquids: Your AC should never drip or leak inside – there's a chance that this could be leaking coolant, which can be a serious hazard to your health.
- Lack of airflow: If your AC isn't blowing air as hard as it should be, there's a good chance you have a blockage somewhere in the system.
- Hot air: Hot air should never blow out of your air conditioner. To troubleshoot the issue, first check the thermostat to ensure it’s set at the correct temperature. Next, ensure the thermostat is set to cooling mode and turn the thermostat down a few degrees. If your AC still can’t seem to produce cool air, a professional repair is necessary.
- Uneven cooling: Your AC is designed to cool your entire home, not just spots throughout the house. However, as time goes on, various factors such as clogged filters and the age of the AC can result in uneven cooling.

The AC Repair Process
Air conditioner systems work the most when the summer rolls around, which also means they are prone to breaking down far more easily during this period. When your AC system suddenly stops working out of nowhere, you will want to call our repair services right away.
Some of the reasons for your AC falling into disrepair include:
- Having filthy air filters – When your filter becomes clogged with too much dust and dirt, the rest of the air flow becomes blocked, barely able to squeeze through. Soon this collection of dirt is going to cause great damage to coils, fans, and other sensitive portions of your unit.
- Having excess dirt on your fans – Your air conditioning unit has not one but two fans to powerfully redistribute cool and warm air. If even one starts malfunctioning, your AC will immediately begin to have problems. The primary way that this malfunction occurs is when additional dust and dirt gathers on the blades of the fans. Not only does the added weight strain your motor, but it also collects in the cracks of the blades, grinding them together so that they slow down or even completely burn out.
- Accumulating dust within the coils – The evaporator coil and the condenser coil are key in the action of transferring the hot or cold air from the fans to be eventually blown in or out of your home. Hot air can become imprisoned within dirty coils, and this is a major issue since it will make your whole unit overheat and break down.
