5 Signs That You’ve Got AC Problems on the Horizon

hand-drawing-check-box-on-a-white-backgroundIf you’ve ever had air conditioning trouble in the middle of the summer, then we’re sure you wished you could have avoided it. We’ve had those moments too. When something unfortunate happens, it’s often that we wish we could have looked into a crystal ball and prevented it

What if we told you that you could do this, though?

You’re definitely not going to get a crystal ball from us, but we do have some tips to help you spot warning signs of an air conditioning problem. Let’s run through a few of them below. Remember that you can always contact us for your AC repair in Wayne, PA.

An Air Conditioning Problem Is In Your Future

Here are a few signs that you’ve got an air conditioning problem coming down the pipeline:

1.      Short Cycling

Short cycling is when your air conditioner literally runs in short cycles. Irregular cycling is when your air conditioner stops short. It’ll look like your air conditioner starting, running for a super short time, stopping early, and then starting again. Your cycles should be rhythmic and continuous. If they’re not, then you need help from one of our AC professionals before things get worse.

2.      Warm Air

Warm air is something you’ll probably notice when you think, “Why isn’t my air conditioner as effective as it used to be?”

If you find yourself working harder to get your air conditioner to provide you with the cool air you’ve always had, then you’re struggling with a system that is producing warm air. We can help you identify the cause and get it fixed.

3.      Low Airflow

Are you noticing low airflow? You might not notice it at the source. Instead, you might just naturally overcompensate by running your air conditioner for longer, choosing cooler temperatures, and becoming a helicopter parent to your home’s thermostat. The source of the problem is your home’s low airflow. It’s time for you to schedule an appointment for your air conditioning services. We’ll help you figure out a plan of attack to improve your AC.

4.      Unfamiliar Noises

You know the sounds of your home. You know the creak of the floorboard right before you get the kitchen, the sound your front door makes when it opens, and even the sound of your air conditioner starting or stopping. This summer, you’ve added some new sounds to your background noise. You’ve started noticing some unfamiliar sounds like banging, rattling, scraping, and more.

Any unfamiliar noise that you hear is a problem. Even if it’s strictly a noise-based nuisance now, it’s going to develop into something bigger later on. Make sure that you’re giving your system the care it needs.

5.      Strange Scents

Have you noticed some weird scents being emitted through your home when your air conditioner runs? You might notice musty or moldy scents when you’re having issues with your air conditioner’s drainage capabilities. We’re going to help you identify the strange scents and get you the service you need.
