Even top-of-the-line systems from the finest manufacturers need occasional fixing. Budget-draining repairs can be avoided if you’re quick to call Leckron’s Comfort Solutions at the first sign of trouble.
Signs That You Need AC Repair
When temperatures soar during the summer, it can wreak havoc on your air conditioner because of excessive use. It can be hard knowing whether your air conditioning issue is something that you can fix on your own or if you need professional help. Here are some telltale signs that you need air conditioning repair:
- You have to adjust the thermostat to feel as comfortably cool as you used to.
- You have unusually high energy bills.
- There’s a bad odor coming from your vents.
- Warm air is blowing from the vents.
- You hear clanging, buzzing, constant clicking, high-pitched whistling or other unusual noises when the system is on.
- The system frequently cycles on and off.
Common Reasons for Air Conditioning Repair
When diagnosing AC trouble, our contractors start with the usual suspects. The same old problems start to occur with age. These are among the most common:
- The thermostat needs replacing.
- The refrigerant is leaking, which causes fluctuating temperatures.
- The drain line is clogged, causing water to leak out and potentially damage equipment.
- A bad breaker has caused the compressor to overheat.
- The start capacitor, run capacitor or both are burned out.
- The compressor has failed because of too little or too much refrigerant.
- A worn contactor is interrupting the flow of electrical current that starts the system.
- The condenser coils have heavy dirt buildup.
- The evaporator coils have corroded.
Consequences of Delaying AC Repair
It’s tempting to cut corners by putting off air conditioning repair for as long as possible. However, the issue can become worse the longer you wait. Loose components break off, and old ones degrade. An overworked system starts to short-cycle, which means it never completes cooling in one run. At best, cooling is uneven and uncomfortable.
