Sure Signs That Your AC Is In Trouble

AC-toolsThe heat of summer may really take its sweet time hitting us up here in Vermont, but it does arrive each and every year. When it does, you need to make sure that your air conditioner is ready to tackle it head-on. Investing in a great air conditioning system from a trusted manufacturer and having that system tuned up on an annual basis will help to ensure that your system is in great working condition. No AC is ever truly 100% reliable, though.

If and when trouble develops with your air conditioner, you want to contact our Ludlow, VT air conditioning repair professionals immediately. The longer that you wait to do so, the worse off your air conditioner is likely to be. So today, we want to share with you some sure signs of trouble that mean your AC is most likely in need of repairs. Let us know immediately if you spot them in your home. 

Your Air Conditioner Is Blowing Warm Air

There are certain air conditioning problems that can really fly under the radar—but this is not one of them! Your air conditioner only has one job to do, and that is to distribute cooled air throughout your home. If it is unable to do this, then you have a problem in need of repair. You can definitely check your air filter to ensure that it’s not too dirty, and you may want to double check the thermostat, too.

However, there are also fairly serious issues that could be at play here. You may have a refrigerant leak, or the ductwork servicing a given area of your home may be leaking.  These problems demand professional solutions, so let us know if you have any concerns about an AC pumping out warm air.

Your Bills Are Spiking

You are obviously going to see a rise in your energy costs the more that you run your AC (though our solar energy services can help you to use renewable energy when cooling your home, and at all other times!). That being said, any inexplicable spikes in the amount that you’re paying to cool your home suggest that there is a problem.

Even the most “minor” problems with your air conditioner can really wind up dragging down energy efficiency, which is why we really don’t believe in “minor” problems. If you are seeing your energy costs soar when running your air conditioner, we can help to get them back in line.

Your Air Conditioner Is Not Running Reliably

You could have a thermostat registering temperatures improperly. Maybe a failing capacitor is keeping your AC from running consistently. You could, again, have a refrigerant leak.

Whatever the cause of the problem, an AC that is not starting up when it should, or that is only running briefly before cycling back down, is really not doing much good. Let us restore your AC to its proper state of operation.
