With the scorching summer months looming, it’s important to keep your air conditioning system in peak condition in order to maintain the comfort and efficiency of your home. That said, now is the time to correct any problems and schedule an AC tune-up and maintenance service. Here, HVAC technicians share four warning signs for which you need to be on the lookout.
Your AC is blowing warm air. A cooling system that’s blowing warm air instead of cool air wastes electricity as it struggles to cool your living space to the desired temperature — most times without results. There could be several reasons for this issue, but a professional tune-up should swiftly address it.
Your AC is putting out weak airflow. If the air coming from your vents is cool but isn’t flowing freely from your air registers, this could indicate a leaky air duct or a clogged filter. Fortunately, a simple tune-up ahead of the season could fix this cost-effectively. Plus, it will help prevent costly repairs down the line.
Your AC is making weird sounds. You should be aware of the sounds your cooling system makes when running normally, especially if you’ve had it for many years. If you hear strange noises such as buzzing or shrieking, these could be symptoms of an underlying problem with the fan motor. In this case, you’ll need a system tune-up as soon as possible to address the source of these new sounds.
Your AC is emitting musty odors. A musty odor coming from your air conditioner could be an indication of a blocked or broken drain tube. Have a certified technician attend to this before the moisture in your equipment produces mold spores, which could require expensive system repairs.
