The warm weather is here in Louisiana, and no one wants to live under a hot roof. The only way to make sure that your home feels consistently comfortable is to have a properly working air conditioner. But how would you know if your A/C is doing well and can last throughout the warm months? The best way is to spot the issues and leave them in the right hands.
Here are the common A/C problems that need professional attention:
A/C Blows Warm Air
Your cooling unit is designed to cool down your space; not to make it even hotter. If you notice your unit blows hot air inside your home, it indicates problems that need professional diagnosis. Call your local technician right away before it’s too late.
Your compressor can be faulty if your unit fails to meet the cooling demands of your home or when it struggles to keep up with normal airflow. Also, when your ductwork is clogged, proper airflow can be restricted. Call the experts for a full assessment of your airflow issues.
If your cooling system runs irregularly or does not turn off as scheduled, it could be a sign that your thermostat is malfunctioning. While a battery problem is the common issue for a faulty thermostat, some bigger issues like electrical problems could also happen, which consequently needs professional attention.
A/C Creates Unusual Noise
The grinding, squealing, or scraping sound characterizes the unusual noise from the inside of your cooling system. Any of these sounds could indicate that your internal belt is slipping out of place during the operation. Don’t ignore this issue as it could invite bigger damages on other internal components. Call the pros right away!
A/C Creates Unpleasant Odor
Cooling systems that produce a pungent and musty smell when turned on is not a good sign. This can happen due to burned wires or mold build-up in your unit or ductwork. Don’t allow the odor to roam around your home or else you and your family will suffer from illnesses. Contact the professionals for immediate repair.
A refrigerant is an essential component of your A/C but is poisonous when it leaks. If you notice some fluid leaking out of your unit or some ice build-up particles inside the A/C along refrigerant lines, contact the experts immediately.
