As summer approaches, everyone wants to make sure that their air conditioning is working properly. No one wants to be stuck in the house waiting on AC repairs in the middle of July. If you want to ensure that your AC unit is going to keep you nice and cool all summer long, now is the time to call an HVAC contractor to make sure everything is running the way it should. Any of these six issues are a sign that it’s time to consider AC repairs or replacement.
Is the Heat On?
We know Texas can get hot, but if you notice that your HVAC is blowing out hot air when you’ve turned on the AC, it’s time to call an HVAC contractor. Your unit might just be low on coolant or it could be that you have larger issues that require AC repairs.
Your AC Is Costing You Money
It’s normal to see your electricity bill go up in the summer because you’re running your unit more to try to stay cool. However, if you see an abnormal spike in your heating and cooling costs – mainly cooling – you may have an AC repair issue. Higher-than-average AC bills could be a sign of a larger problem that needs immediate attention.
Weird Noise Alert
Do you keep hearing weird clanking noises, or notice that your AC just keeps running and running without a break? Keep air out from these little signs from your HVAC unit that could be a sign that it’s in need of AC repairs. Different noises can mean different things but it’s always a good idea to check with your HVAC contractor if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
What’s that smell? If you notice a musty, stale smell or a burning smell coming from your HVAC unit, it’s definitely time to call a Rockwall TX HVAC specialist. Musty smells could mean there’s mold in your HVAC, while a burning smell could indicate a serious electrical issue. Both might mean it’s time for AC replacement.
You Have an Older System
Both residential and commercial air duct systems tend to lose up between 25-40 percent of their heating and cooling capacity over time. No system was built to last forever. If your unit has seen 10 or more years, it may be time to consider replacing the entire HVAC system.
Not Feeling Any Air
A unit that just refuses to blow air won’t do anyone any good in the Texas heat. You might be having an issue with the AC fan or experiencing a breakdown in the efficiency of your unit. It may be time to consult your local HVAC technician to explore AC repairs or AC replacement.
