Air conditioning is a beautiful invention. It allows people to live comfortably in hot and humid environments. Summers and hot weather, in general, are much more tolerable when the heat is endurable. Depending on the local climate, air conditioners can take a lot of abuse over the years. The more an air conditioner is used, the more likely it will eventually need HVAC repair. Ignoring the signs of potential repair needs will just cost more in the long run, so it’s best to pay attention before it’s too late.
What To Look For
One sign of the need for air conditioner repair is low airflow. Low airflow usually means there’s a clog somewhere in the system preventing proper air circulation, which can freeze up the air conditioner’s coils and cause even further damage.
Lack of proper cooling is another sign of needed HVAC repair. If the air conditioner isn’t working well, something needs to be examined. If it starts short-cycling, which means it’s turning on and off a lot without actually doing anything, a service call is required. Short-cycling can quickly wear out an air conditioner, so it’s best repaired before A/C completely breaks down.
Weird noises in an air system are often an indicator of the need for repair. Rattling and clanking can mean something is loose in the vents or a rickety fan or coil. If a screw or other such device gets loose in the air conditioner itself, it could outright destroy the fan or A/C itself. Tightening a loosened part is better than having to replace an air conditioner altogether.
High Energy Bill
Finally, if the energy bill is higher than usual, it could mean the A/C is working harder and less efficiently than it used to. A high energy bill indicates that repairs might be needed, but make sure that the higher costs aren’t just due to unusually hot temperatures.
