Just like any other system in your home or business, your air conditioner can’t work properly and efficiently without attention from time to time. Occasionally, it requires our technicians’ attention in the form of maintenance or repair. Here are four common signs you need to schedule air conditioner maintenance or repair:
- Unpleasant Odors- If your air conditioner is emitting odors, a few things could be wrong. There may be bacterial growth on the evaporator coil or air filter, creating a musty smell. If this is the case, you need air conditioner maintenance. If you smell a burning or electrical smell, the system’s components may be overheating, which requires prompt repair.
- High Humidity- Air conditioning is designed to remove humidity from your indoor environment. If you notice that your home or business is more humid than usual even though your AC is running, your unit may be low on refrigerant.
- Leaking Water- Water leaks around the base of your AC unit usually indicate that you have a clogged condensate drain line. Clogs are caused by a buildup of dust, dirt, and debris, but they can be prevented with proper maintenance and resolved with repairs.
- Strange Noises- Noises coming from your AC unit are a red flag. If you hear squealing, grinding, or abnormal vibrations, you need air conditioner repair. Squealing is often caused by a poorly aligned belt while grinding indicates problems with motor bearings.
