Signs of Air Conditioner Malfunction – It’s been a hot summer in Florida, and hopefully your air conditioner was able to handle the heat.
Remember to schedule your maintenance now that we are through with the humidity.
This is the perfect time to run a check-up on your HVAC system to prevent damages.
At CFHC, we offer an annual maintenance program that saves you money in the long run. Be sure to check it out here.
During our maintenance check-up our air conditioner tech will check and test several things.
However, if you’re experiencing any of the signs listed below your air conditioner may need additional repair or require immediate assistance from an HVAC contractor.
Signs of Air Conditioner Malfunction
Lack of Cool Air
This is one of the easiest signs to pick up on.
If your unit isn’t blowing cool air into your home, there is a big problem.
It could mean that your air conditioner’s pipes are clogged up and won’t be able to work properly until it has been repaired.
Another sign that your air conditioner may need fixing is unusual smells.
If you can sense a strong smell, then it could mean that your insulation system is burnt out and might need to be replaced.
If it smells moldy, it might mean that there’s mold buildup in your unit and throughout the duct system.
Hearing unusual sounds such as grinding, squealing, or other loud sounds?
If you come across this, your best course of action is to address them quickly, so you won’t have to get your entire unit replaced.
At CHFC we have a team of ac techs ready to respond to any service call.
If your air conditioner unit isn’t performing the way it’s supposed to, make sure to give us a call immediately to prevent further damages.
If you ever notice moisture or buildup near your HVAC system, you’ve run into another problem.
Don’t panic, this may not be a major issue as its most likely related to a refrigerant leak or something blocking the tubes that takes condensation away from your unit.
Just don’t ignore it for too long as it could attract mold to the area.
Signs of Air Conditioner Malfunction: Higher Humidity Levels
Your AC may require repair if your house isn’t getting properly cooled down.
If the air in your home is sticky, or water is pooling on your windows more often, it could mean that your unit isn’t working properly.
