How To Know If Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

Card image cap


Summer is coming (no seriously, it is). If you have invested in an air conditioning unit, avoid getting all hot and bothered by getting to know your unit and when it needs a repair or service.

As with many things, there are a few indicators that suggest you need to call an HVAC professional who can service and/or repair your air conditioner. We’ve included a handful which should help to set the tone.

First things first, if you understand the role of a refrigerant in your unit, you are in a good place to understand what it should and should not be doing. There are many types of refrigerants which we won’t go into, but in essence the gas and liquid compounds are what produce cool air and when these levels change, it impacts the cold air being produced.

Signs You Need To Repair Your Air Conditioner

Getting warmer

The most obvious tell that something is amiss has to be the noticeable warm difference to your space. If this is the case, your refrigerant levels may be running low or, it may well be something else. Either way, it’s time to get in touch with an air conditioning professional.

Weird noises

If your unit is hissing, whistling, rattling or making out-of-the-ordinary noises, it is important to repair your air conditioner and avoid this becoming a bigger problem. Noise can be put down to any number of things and the only way you can have peace of mind is by contacting a professional to take a look at your air conditioning.

Higher energy bills

We all know that energy bills are skyrocketing but that aside, if you are experiencing higher than usual consumption levels, take a moment to piece together whether your unit has been behaving differently and if so, could it be due the age of your AC unit or simply that it needs a repair service to iron out some of the minor issues.
