It isn’t always so easy to figure out that your AC system needs to be repaired. Most systems actually break down gradually, so there will be a period with a lot of warning signs before the AC finally quits altogether. Making sure you get repairs during this time can address small issues before they become big problems. All homeowners should be sure to keep an eye out for these signs that repairs are needed.
Sticky, Humid Air
Part of the job of any AC system is to reduce indoor humidity. If your house is suddenly feeling abnormally damp, it means your air conditioner isn’t working as it should. Keep in mind that some areas are just so naturally humid that a basic air conditioner isn’t enough to do the job, so this can also just be a sign that you need to talk to David White Services about installing a dehumidifier.
You should definitely consider obtaining professional AC repair services if you notice that your air conditioning system is always switching on and off rapidly. The occasional quick cycle is common when temperatures spike, but if you notice the unit doing this even when it’s mild outside, there’s something wrong with the system.
Blowing Hot Air
When you feel like your home isn’t cooling down properly, try putting your hand near a vent to feel the air blowing out of the AC unit. If it’s warm instead of cold, you may be dealing with some sort of compressor issue or airflow problem.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s probably a good idea to get your AC system checked out.
