Summertime in Cedar Park, TX, is intensely hot. You’ll need an effective air conditioner to keep your home comfortable all summer long. With regular tuneups, air conditioners are reliable and efficient. However, the long, hot summers create a lot of wear and tear on your cooling system. Read on to find out the signs that you need an air conditioner repair as soon as possible.
Well-maintained air conditioners operate quietly. You’ll hear a click at the start of a cycle and a soft humming or whooshing sound as the fan turns and blows chilled air into your home. If you suddenly hear screeching, squealing, grinding or rattling sounds, you’ll need an AC repair. Hissing or whistling sounds also require professional attention.
The air blowing from your home’s vents during a cooling cycle should feel chilly on your skin. If the air feels warm or there’s barely a trickle of air blowing from the vents, there’s a problem with your air conditioner. Check the air filter. If it’s dirty or more than two months old, replace it. If the air is still warm, call for an air conditioner repair.
Ice or Leaks
During a cooling cycle, moisture from your home’s air condenses into water. The water collects in the drain pan and empties through the condensate line. If you notice ice buildup anywhere on the air conditioner or a leak near the bottom of the unit, the coils, drain pan or condensate line may need repairs.
