You Need AC Repair If…

Here are a few signs that you’re going to need air conditioning repair in your home this summer.

1.      Your AC Unit Is Short Cycling

“Short cycling” is when your air conditioner starts cooling, runs for a short while, stops abruptly, and then starts up again. This might be one of those problems that you just sigh and shrug off because, while it’s annoying, it’s not completely preventing you from getting cool. What you need to know is that it’s the annoying problems that eventually cause a real upset in your home.

2.      You Can’t Get Cool

Does your air conditioner struggle to cool your home or struggle to keep your home cool if it is able to cool it off? No matter what’s going on, it’s always a problem that you should handle sooner than later. Procrastination is what allows air conditioning problems to become extreme and expensive.

3.      Your Unit Blows Warm Air

Do you notice that your air conditioner just seems like it’s not working although it turns on and runs just fine? The problem is the temperature of your air. If no amount of thermostat adjustment helps this, you’re going to need to come to our team for assistance.

4.      You’ve Got Poor Airflow

Have you noticed that those spots right underneath your vents where you’re normally shivering are suddenly quite bearable? Maybe you find yourself turning your thermostat down more than normal or running your air conditioner for longer amounts of time. This is a sign that you’ve got low airflow. It’s hard for homeowners to spot this problem because they’re not always on the inside like technicians, but all these signs are clear symptoms of this issue.

5.      Your Energy Bills Cost Too Much

There might be a few weeks throughout the summer where you’re running your air conditioner more than usual because we’re experiencing a heatwave and, of course, this is going to result in an air conditioning bill that’s a little more costly after the fact. The key here is that there’s a clear cause and effect making your air conditioning bill more expensive. If you can’t pinpoint why your air conditioner bills are higher this summer, you’re going to need an assessment from a professional because you’re probably struggling with your efficiency.
