Signs You Need AC Repair or Replacement
- Air Conditioning
As the weather outside gets hotter, you may find yourself indoors more often to stay cool. Here in NC, it can get pretty hot during the summer. Not only is a functioning AC important for your comfort, it’s important for your safety as well. If you have noticed that your AC isn’t working as well as it used to, you should call Streamline for a professional inspection. If your system can be repaired, we can fix it! However, if you’ve already spent money on repairs in the past, you may want to consider a replacement. Here are some warning signs that could mean you need AC repair or replacement this spring.
If your AC isn’t turning on at all, it’s an obvious sign that something is wrong. You need your AC to turn on when needed, especially during the warmer months. After you turn it on, it should easily reach your desired temperature. As it gets hotter outside, you need to make sure that you have a cool, safe, and comfortable home to relax in. If you find that it has been switching often, and you’ve already had repairs done, you may want to consider looking for a replacement.
Any extra moisture on your AC unit is never a good sign. Condensation that is left to gather and pool up can quickly lead to mold or mildew growth. Not only do they spread at a rapid rate, spores can be released through your AC into your air supply.
Lack of Cooling
Your AC should cool your home with ease. If some rooms in your home aren’t being cooled as well as others, or there is a noticeable temperature difference, it’s a sign that your AC can no longer keep up with the demands in your home. A Streamline professional will be able to locate the problem and fix it accordingly. If your AC is beyond repair, or you’ve already have several repairs done, you should begin looking for a replacement.
Your cooling system shouldn’t be making any loud noises. If you start to hear them, call a Streamline expert to figure out the problem. It’s possible that a piece inside has detached or that you have debris built up somewhere in your duct system. It can also be a sign of motor failure. Whatever the reason, you should schedule a professional inspection.
Your air conditioner should only blow cool air that gets spread out evenly throughout your home. If yours is blowing warm air, you could simply need a refrigeration refill. A leak, on the other had, can be much more difficult to fix. This needs to be addressed by a professional immediately, as it can cause other problems throughout your home. If you’ve already spent money on repairs in the past, it’s in your best interest to replace your AC.
