Knowing whether or not an air conditioning system needs repairs, or if it is on its way out, might be difficult for some individuals to identify because they are unfamiliar with how all of its components work. Some people even forget that the small issues they ignore could turn into bigger problems! Therefore, if you are looking for some signs that it might be time to call an air conditioning technician, and not ignore or take on the problem yourself, you should keep in mind the following:
No cool air for a few moments is one thing, but if it takes longer, you might have a bigger issue on your hands.
At some point during your air conditioning system’s lifespan, you might discover that it is not cooling your home as effectively as it once did. You might even notice that there is no cool air at all. If this is the case, there is a strong possibility that there is something wrong with your compressor or that Freon (refrigerant) levels are low. A serious problem with the compressor or leaking Freon might also be a strong indication you should consider a new system. Whatever the case, you should call Care Temp Heating and Air Conditioning at 732-349-1441, to find the real reason why your system is blowing warm, or no air.
Poor air flow could mean debris is stuck somewhere, or everywhere!
If there is hardly any air flowing out of your AC vents, not only might your unit’s compressor be failing, but it’s possible that your ductwork is in need of some serious cleaning. Over time, the debris that builds up in your air conditioning vents will not only prohibit airflow, but it can also damage you and your family’s health. So, next time you feel little to no air coming out of your vents, think about the last time you had a professional come out and check your ductwork.
Strange and unusual sounds should not be ignored, especially if they come and go.
Grinding, squealing, and other strange sounds are not only indications that there might be something wrong with a particular component of your system, but they might also be signs that the system needs to be replaced. A squealing noise might indicate a belt is out of place, and a grinding noise could indicate that there is something wrong with your motor. Inevitably, if you hear anything strange, it’s probably best to call in a professional.
Although many homeowners wish their air conditioning systems would run perfectly until the end of time, they don’t, and it’s likely that they will need many repairs throughout their one to two decade lifespans. If you believe that your system needs any repairs, do not hesitate to call Care Temp Heating and Air Conditioning at 732-349-1441 immediately, as we know that many major problems could have been avoided if they were first addressed as minor issues!
