When to Call for Residential Air Conditioning Repair
Residential air conditioning units can seem complicated to understand. After all, there's a reason there's an entire non-profit organization dedicated to training people on how to best work with them! That's why it can make it hard to determine if your unit is functioning as it should, or if you need to call for heating and cooling repair. Here are a few warning signs that it's time to contact R & A Cooling to come out and inspect your system.
1. Warm Air
The number one most obvious sign that your air conditioner isn't working right is if warm air is coming out of your vents. You can troubleshoot this on your own by checking the thermostat to ensure it's set to "cool" and that the temp you've chosen is lower than your home's current temperature. If all that seems in order, give us a call to come and check it out.
2. Insufficient Airflow
Restricted airflow can also be a reason for warm air coming through your vents. This can mean that your unit isn't operating at top efficiency or that something is blocking the air from moving through your ducts. Common culprits include a clogged air filter or a broken motor. Basic HVAC services should be able to resolve the problem.
3. Frequent Cycles
You should expect your air conditioner to routinely cycle on and off. However, if it is frequently or constantly cycling through, however, that might be a sign that it's time for a tune-up. Of course, also keep in mind the outside temperature. If it is a very hot day in summer, your system will naturally be putting in more work to keep your home cool.
4. High Humidity
A properly working system will monitor the humidity and adjust accordingly. If you notice the inside of your home is particularly humid, you'll want to look for HVAC services. This can determine if you simply need tune-up, or if a whole-house dehumidifier would work best for you.
5. Water Leaks
Refrigerant and condensation are completely normal liquids for your air conditioning unit. However, they shouldn't be leaking into your home. If you notice pooled water around your unit, it's time to call for residential air conditioning repair. If you ignore the leak for too long, it can lead to worse issues, including structural damage.
