5 Signs Your Air Conditioner Is Struggling


We’re rounding the corner on the finish line of summer. Can you reflect on the last few months and say that yours was a success? We would hope that the answer is a firm “yes,” but if it isn’t, we’re here to help you make sure that it is next year. 

The first thing that you need to consider is AC repair in Riverside, CA. We know that this isn’t always what you want to hear. Most of the time, homeowners are looking for another option to try before they have to pick up the phone to call a professional. Sometimes, professional repair is your best option, though. Let’s talk about the signs that you need care below.

Your AC Needs Help If…

Here are a few signs that your air conditioner is going to need help.

1. You Weren’t Cool Enough

Before you write this one off and just assume that you had proper service this summer, we want you to take a step back and really think about if you were cool enough. Being “cool enough” in this instance also means that you should factor in all the effort it took to get cool. 

Did you have to run your air conditioner for longer than you’re typically accustomed to? Did you have to choose cooler temperatures than you’re used to? These are signs that you were struggling with your air conditioning. They should be addressed before the end of the summer.

2. You’re Paying Too Much

Have you noticed that your air conditioner costs have increased throughout the summer? This really isn’t something that you should worry about. If your air conditioning bills are increasing with no clear cause, then it’s due to inefficiency. We can help you get around these issues.

3. You Notice Short Cycling

Short cycling is when your air conditioner runs in incomplete cycles. You might not notice short cycling right away. Instead, you might just pick up on the fact that your air conditioner is turning on and off a lot more than you’re used to. Short cycling is terrible for your AC system so the sooner you address it the better off things will be.

4. There’s Warm Air Flowing Out of Your System 

Are you struggling with warm air coming from your system? If so that is an efficiency issue. You’re going to spend more time, effort, and money trying to cool your home if you allow warm air to continue to plague your home’s air conditioning system.

5. Moisture Issues

You shouldn’t have moisture issues with your home’s air conditioner. If you feel like your home becomes a desert as soon as you flip on your air conditioner, then this is a moisture issue. On the other side of things, if you notice that there’s mold and mildew growth throughout your home as the summer progresses, then this is also a moisture issue. Both have their significant downsides and we’re prepared to help you solve these issues.
