Signs Your AC Unit Is In Need Of Repair
In a perfect world, A/C units would never malfunction, but unfortunately, they often do. If you are thinking about A/C maintenance or repair, read on to learn signs that your A/C may be due for a tune-up.
Lack of cold air
An early sign of a broken A/C is a lack of cold air. If you turn on the A/C but get a blast of warm air, it could be as simple as resetting the thermostat. If you have checked that the A/C is set to cool (several degrees colder than ambient temperature) and are still getting warm air, it is time to call the HVAC Heroes to see what the problem is.
Unit won’t turn on
You’ve flipped the switch, you’ve checked the breaker and the outlet, but the A/C still won’t turn on? Don’t wait to sweat in the Texas sun– call the HVAC Heroes to get your A/C back on so your family can stay cool and comfortable.
Strange smells (Especially a burning smell)
A burning smell is almost always a bad sign with household appliances. If you notice your A/C has a burning smell or a gunpowder smell, it is likely a problem with the A/C circuit board, fan, compressor or motor. If you notice a burning smell turn off your A/C immediately to prevent further damage and call to have, it serviced by an HVAC specialist.
A frozen evaporator coil
The evaporator coil works with the condenser coil in the heat exchange process that pumps cool air through your home. The role of the evaporator coil is to absorb heat from your home, so if it is frozen, it cannot do its job. It can also cause severe leakage around the unit as it thaws. If you notice any of these signs it is best to call for a repair ASAP.
A/C’s are generally quiet. If you hear a new sound or something like metal hitting metal, it could indicate a loose part or fan blade. A repeated thumping sound could be fan blades out a balance, and a screeching noise usually means a broken fan belt or compressor. None of these sounds are pleasant, so if you hear them, it is best to turn off your machine until a technician can look at it.
Puddles of water or refrigerant
In the normal run of usage A/C’s can drip a little water, which is not a cause for alarm. But if you notice a lot of water coming from your A/C unit, it could indicate that something is wrong with the coolant coil or the evaporator coil. Excess moisture can also damage property and cause mold growth, so it is best to get it evaluated.
