What Are Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair?

The ideal time to catch a problem with the AC unit is before it completely shuts down. Here are some telltale indicators to keep an eye out for: 

  • Strange Noises: Rattling or squeaking can be a sign that something is wrong with the fan blades, or that an internal component has come loose. 
  • Strange Odors: Does the air coming from the vents have an odd stench to it? That could be coming from mold growth inside the unit. Getting this addressed quickly is good for the health of the unit. More importantly, it’s good for the respiratory health of everyone living on the property. 
  • Pooling Water: Are there puddles starting to show near your unit, or by the walls? This kind of a leak can cause significant damage if it’s allowed to fester .
  • Higher Energy Costs: We all know that our air conditioning bills will spike in the summer months. But are you seeing a big jump from June to July despite no appreciable difference in use? That can be because the system is having to work harder to produce the same amount of cool air. And that is the sign of a looming problem. 
  • Irregular Cycling: A homeowner can get used to a certain rhythm in hearing their system go on and off, as it adjusts the in-house temperature to the level set by the thermostat. When that normal cycle seems to be speeding up, the issue might be with wiring or other internal components not working properly. 
  • Poor Air Flow: Problems in the ducts or with the filters can result in air coming out of the vents slower. A related problem is uneven cooling, where one room might be perfectly comfortable, while another is overly warm. Each property is different, and some residences are structured in a way that air will just flow differently. But it might also be a problem with the system. Our Derry air conditioning repair pros will find out. 
  • The AC Is Blowing Hot Air: This is a little more than an indicator of a problem. This is the problem, and the system is no longer working.

How a Derry Air Conditioning Repair Tech Can Help

While homeowners should certainly take prudent DIY steps, and there are many people who are very handy , the actual repair of the AC is something to be put in the hands of a licensed, certified professional. Here’s why:

  • Personal Safety: An air conditioning system runs with enough electrical voltage to deliver a fatal dose if mistakes are made. 
  • Warranty Issues: The fine print of a warranty is important. It’s possible that a warranty’s promises may be conditioned on all work beyond the basics being done by a certified tech. If the system is really damaged beyond repair, the money saved by not calling a professional will be lost—and then some—on the costs of losing warranty protection. 
  • Regulatory Issues: Refrigerants are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. There are further handling requirements mandated by the federal Clean Air Act. A licensed tech may be required. And at the very least, a professional, like those at Comfort Air, deal with these regulations as part of our job and are deeply familiar with all requirements. 
  • Available Parts: Even homeowners that do a lot of their own work usually don’t keep air conditioning parts in the garage. Moreover, the parts needed in a repair often have to be ordered from a supplier, meaning they aren’t always ready at Home Depot. Our truck will have the parts on hand, and with our same-day service and 24/7 availability, we can be out to your home quickly.
