Summer is just around the corner! If you want to stay cool and fresh on the scorching hot days ahead, you should take a look at your air conditioner and make sure it’s in working condition. Having a functional and efficient air conditioning unit is a key component of a comfortable home in the summer. Unsure whether or not you need a new air conditioner? Here are some signs to look out for.
Warm, Weak, or No Air Circulating
A faulty or broken air conditioner is the last thing you want in your home this summer! If you notice any of the above listed issues with air flow in your home, there is likely something wrong with your air conditioning unit or air ducts. Your problem may be due to a mild issue like an overabundance of dust on your vents, but many times you’re going to need an HVAC expert to evaluate the situation. We understand the importance of staying cool and safe during the summer, so we’ll make sure your air conditioner only emits cold, fresh air!
Water or any moisture leaking from your air conditioner is a serious problem. A leaky air conditioner is a sign of major damage to your unit, and you should turn the unit off immediately after you notice any leakage. Air conditioner replacement can be a bit pricey, but allowing water to leak onto your floors, walls, ceilings, and furniture will cause more damage and put a severe dent in your pocket. That’s why it is crucial to take action immediately after you see something wrong with your unit.
Costly Electric Bill
If you notice your energy bill is considerably higher than normal, your aged air conditioner may be to blame. If your unit has to overwork itself to produce results that you’re used to seeing, that is going to show in your bills. We understand that installing a new air conditioning unit in your home is going to cost you some money, but you will save more money in the long run by immediately seeing your electric bill go down. An efficient air conditioner is a good air conditioner!
This probably goes without saying, but your air conditioner should not emit any strange odors. If you smell something foul coming out of your vents, it is likely because of a burnt wire, mold, or a dead animal. Nobody wants to live in or visit a home with a horrible stench, which is why we recommend hiring a specialist to diagnose your air conditioning unit. If the broken parts are beyond repair and the mold is too much to get rid of, it’s time to get a new unit installed.
