Signs Your AC Needs to be Repaired

If you have been having air conditioner issues and you are wondering what to do next, then we are here to help! The Service Wizard AC experts are here to provide some insight on what issues you may be facing and help you decide if you require ac maintenance.

5 Signs AC Needs Repair

Your Thermostat Is Malfunctioning

Think of your thermostat as the manager of your home’s air conditioning. It tells all of your components exactly what to do to ensure comfort within your home. Now if the manager is unable to do their job or is performing poorly, then you know there is a problem.

If your thermostat is turning off unexpectedly or only operating briefly then there is an issue. The obvious idea is to replace the thermostat. However, the issues may be caused by components in your AC not functioning. In this case you will also need AC repair.

There’s Leakage From Air Conditioner

Moisture around your unit is not always a sign of a leak. But when you discover liquid around your air conditioner it is always best to be cautious. If you are experiencing a condensate or refrigerant leak then you could be in trouble.

Refrigerant leaks are severe due to them being poisonous. Condensate leaks are more common but still problematic as they are due to a broken or clogged drain line. If this is the case you’ll need to call up our professionals to fix the issue.

Weak Air Flow

The last time I checked your AC is supposed to keep you comfortable. To do so it will need to provide efficient airflow. If air is struggling to travel through the vents then this is an obvious sign of a need to repair.

If air cannot travel around the room properly then it will not cool it down. If you are experiencing discomfort in your home then it is best to check on the airflow.

Unusual Sounds Coming From AC

A broken AC can make you feel like you’re in a horror film with all of the unusual noises you may hear while at home. Don’t be alarmed because there is not someone sneaking up on you, it is just your air conditioner. At least we hope it’s just your AC!

These noises typically come from an outside unit and can consist of clicking, banging as well hissing and some other noises. If you are experiencing this then you are likely in need of AC repair.

AC Is Aging Out

If your air conditioner has been well taken care of and has received routine care then you can expect at least a decade of use from it. If you are beginning to surpass that duration time then it may be best to consider a replacement.
