3 Main Reasons Your AC Needs Repairs

Your AC holds up against a lot of stress and wear and tear, but it’s eventually going to need some help. It’s not always easy to know when you need AC repair–sometimes you have to look for precursors before your AC breaks down. That’s what we’re here to help you with today.

Before you call for air conditioner repair in Conway, let’s look at the signals that your air conditioner is sending your way so you know if there’s an issue or not.

Odd Noises

Metal screeching sounds, loud thudding in the ductwork, and even weird clicking–these are all indicative of a larger problem, and yes, they’re all sounds that your air conditioner can actually make. In many cases when you hear these sounds, you want to shut down your AC and call us straight away.

Strange noises don’t sound like that big of an issue, but it may be because the pieces inside of your AC are hanging on by a thread. If you’re not sure whether or not your AC is making odd noises, let us ask you this: have you noticed any noises lately?

After a while, the air conditioner’s normal operational sounds just blend into the background. If you notice your AC now and something sticks out to you, that’s a clear sign that something is wrong.

Lowered Efficiency Levels

Your AC needs to run for 15-20 minutes to cool your home. If it does its job well, it shuts down after that until there’s a temperature difference greater than one degree. Then it comes to life again, and cools your home before shutting down. Rinse, lather, repeat.

But what happens when that cycle takes 25 minutes, or 30 minutes? It’s an indicator that your AC is struggling to get the job done, and those extra minutes of operation cost you money in energy bills.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

This one’s tricky. We recommend separate indoor air purifiers for any home because the filter on your air conditioner is not an air purifier, so this one can be hard to tell. When your AC is in trouble, it’s not pulling contaminants from the air as well, and you may notice an increased amount of particles floating around in the light.

However, anyone who possesses an indoor air purifier, even if it’s a small standalone unit, won’t be able to notice much of a difference. This is the trickiest one to pin down, but it’s something you should keep in mind.

Your air conditioner needs help now, and it’s telling you that. Don’t delay, because the longer you wait to get necessary repairs for your air conditioner, the worse off it’s going to be.
