Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair

air-conditioning-repairSpring is here and temperatures in our neck of the woods are already rising. You’ve probably had to run your air conditioner more than once already this year, and pretty soon you’re going to need to use it every day just to keep your home comfortable in the midst of another scorching summer.

With that in mind, the sooner you can spot any issues with your air conditioner, the better. If yours has problems in need of repair, then now is the time to spot them. Doing so gives you several weeks to plan repairs before the weather gets really hot, and can usually reduce the cost of repairs as well, since the damage won’t have as much time to spread.

You should never attempt to formally diagnose a problem with your air conditioner, much less attempt repairs. Both tasks require formal training and licensing, since air conditioners potentially dangerous components like refrigerant that laymen should never handle. But just because you can’t pinpoint the source of the problem doesn’t mean you can’t spot the signs that something is wrong. If you turn on your air conditioner and run if for 15-20 minutes, you might be able to spot them.

These signs can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Low Cooling Levels. Low refrigerant can result in air blown through the system that isn’t as cool as it should be. So can overheating components and breaches in the ducts. Regardless of the cause, low cooling levels are a problem because they force your air conditioner to work harder than it should: driving up your bills and the risk of more serious breakdowns.
  • Low Air Flow. If the air isn’t flowing out of your vents as quickly as you’d expect, the causes is usually either a blockage in the system or a problem with the fan apparatus. It’s a problem because, as with low cooling levels, it forces your air conditioner to work harder than necessary in order to do its job. More worrisome, the cold air will often remain inside the air conditioner itself: causing frost to form on the coils and creating other serious impediments to the AC’s ability to function.
  • Weird Sounds. All air conditioners make a distinctive sound when they run, which you likely are very used to by now. Any strange noise that doesn’t match those “normal” sounds should be viewed with suspicion: hums, whirs, bangs, groans and anything in between. In most cases, the sound in question will start and stop in time with the starting and the stopping of the air conditioner.
  • Short Cycling. Air conditioners use much more power turning on and turning off than they do simply running, which is why you want your system to run for at least 15 minutes at a clip in order to perform at maximum efficiency. If it doesn’t run as
