HVAC problems always occur at the most inconvenient time. It’s often during the hottest day of the summer or during a big gathering that the AC system is pushed beyond capabilities. Without a properly working HVAC unit, your family’s health, safety, and comfort are at stake. Avoid costly replacements by identifying signs that suggest it’s time for repair before they become major problems. Common signs that suggest it’s time to schedule repair service with our Bucks County AC repair company include:
1- AC Blows Warm Air
We never expect hot air to come out of the air conditioner, so this big surprise is met with frustration by those who just want to cool off. If you come home to an air conditioner that is blowing out hot air, contact an HVAC technician for help. The cause of an air conditioning unit blowing hot air can be a number of problems that an A/C tech can properly diagnose and repair.
2- Thermostat Stops Working
The AC thermostat is the command center. It communicates with the air conditioning unit telling it the proper amount of air to generate. If the unit shuts off after short periods of time or doesn’t work at all, the thermostat could be functioning improperly. The problem stops only when you call the technicians from our Bucks County AC repair company out to your home for repair service.
3- Loud Noises
Properly working HVAC units generate little to no noise. If your unit suddenly starts grinding, squeaking, scraping, or making other strange noises, there is damage on the inside of the unit. Contact our Bucks County AC repair company for proper diagnosis and repair to avoid costly damages.
4- Strange Odors
When you notice bad odors after the AC unit turns on, there is a problem. Your unit should never emit strange odors inside the home. Bad odors indicate mold or mildew trapped inside the unit or in the ductwork, burned wires, or numerous other problems. Get a proper diagnosis of the problem because these issues may make your family sick.
5- Leaks Around the Unit
Moisture leaking around the AC unit is a big problem. Whether the moisture is caused by freon and a refrigerant leak, water, or something else, a leak needs proper repair because moisture can be poisonous, smell bad, and ruin floors and carpets.
