If you’re like most Florida homeowners, then you rely on your AC system to keep your home comfortable year-round. The last thing you want is for your AC to break down, as your home will quickly become a sweltering, humid mess. In our experience here at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating, the best way to prevent such malfunctions is to identify potential problems as early as possible. To help you do that, we’ll go over three signs that you need AC repair.
- Low Airflow- One sign that you need AC repair is low or insufficient airflow from your vents. If you put your hand by a vent and feel only a weak current, then you have a problem. While low airflow could be caused by something as simple as a clogged air filter, it could also be caused by something serious like a broken motor, so we recommend calling our team for a professional assessment.
- Warm Air- Another clear sign that you need AC repair is if the air blowing from your vents is warm. If you notice that the air from your vents isn’t as cool as it should be, check that your thermostat settings are correct; if the problem persists even after you’ve verified that your system is in cooling mode and the temperature is set properly, then you definitely have a problem.
- Strange Noises- While all air conditioning systems make some noise as they operate, if you start to hear loud, unpleasant, or otherwise unusual noises coming from your unit, then you may need AC repair. Rattling, buzzing, whistling, or grinding sounds can be indications that your system has a loose or misaligned part, or signs of more serious problems. If your system starts to make strange noises, we recommend giving us a call at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating to find out whether you need AC repair.
