Mayday! Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs to Be Repaired

When It’s Time to Make the Call

During the summertime, the weather can change in a matter of minutes. One second the skies are clear and the next you’re caught in the rain!

You might find yourself in a similar situation with your air conditioner. In the blink of an eye, your system has gone from A-OK to AWOL!

But how do you know when it’s time to call? Is it just a bump in the road or does your system need professional repair work?

There are certain things to look out for with your air conditioner. Take a minute to learn the telltale signs that your system needs professional attention. And if the problem isn’t reversible, we’ll help you get a fresh start with our trusted air conditioning installation service in Monmouth County, NJ, and beyond.

Be on the Lookout for…

Higher Energy Bills

If the bills change and your habits haven’t, don’t take this lightly. The last thing you want to do is pay for something you’re not even enjoying. Contact us if your bills have skyrocketed and you don’t know why. We’ll take a close look at your system to see what’s been burning a hole in your wallet.

Warm Air

Air conditioners are designed to cool your air, not heat it! If your system is distributing warm air, then there’s something wrong with it. Our technicians will identify the issue and get your system working just as it should.

Inconsistent Temperature

Is your system constantly turning on and off throughout the day? Air conditioners—especially newer ones—are designed to deliver slow but steady cooling comfort. If your home is hot one second and then cold the next, take it as a sign that something’s wrong.

Poor Airflow

Your system is working hard to deliver cooled air. The only problem is, you’re not feeling it! The solution can be as simple as changing or cleaning the air filter. But if you do this and the problem persists, there may be blockage in your ductwork. Our technicians can quickly diagnose the issue and get that air flowing freely again.

Broken Thermostat

If your thermostat doesn’t work properly, your AC can’t do its job. First, make sure your thermostat doesn’t run on batteries. A lot of homeowners don’t realize their thermostats are battery-operated and will call for help right away. If your thermostat isn’t battery-operated and something still appears to be wrong with it, we can repair it for you.

Unusual Noises

When the usual hums are replaced with loud rattling noises, don’t let this fall on deaf ears. The problem isn’t likely to go away on its own and will probably worsen over time. Have your system inspected and repaired before the damage intensifies.

Unpleasant Odors

Trust your nose on this one. If it smells like something is burning, then there’s a good chance it is. Other smells that should raise red flags include rotten egg smells (which can indicate a gas leak) and musty or moldy smells. Never sniff the other way and take a chance with your safety. Our trained technicians will get to the root of the problem to make sure your home is safe—and smells great!
