Summer is nearly here, which means your air conditioning system will start to work harder to keep you cool. As temperatures in Glendale, Arizona, increase, so will the strain on your AC system. If you haven’t scheduled professional AC maintenance, your risk of breakdown is even higher. Here are four warning signs your air conditioner is in trouble:
AC is Blowing Warm Air or No Air At All
Your air conditioner’s main job is to blow cool air into your home. If the air coming out of your supply vents isn’t cool, check your thermostat settings before calling a professional. If that isn’t the problem, the air conditioner’s compressor might be malfunctioning. The lack of cool airflow can also mean that your air conditioner’s refrigerant levels are low.
AC is Making Loud and Unusual Noises
It’s perfectly normal for your air conditioner to make sounds when turning on and off or even during operation. But if you hear squealing, grinding or rattling sounds from your air conditioner, there’s likely an outstanding issue. A squealing noise might mean that a belt has slipped out of place. It might also indicate that a metal part needs lubricant.
AC is Leaking and You Find Excess Moisture
The are two main reasons your air conditioner might leak: leaking refrigerant and a blocked condensate drain line. To avoid microbial growth, it’s important that you contact a professional to diagnose the problem and repair it right away.
AC is Producing Strange Smells
If your air conditioner has been leaking for some time, microbial growth is inevitable. You’ll soon start to notice musty smells because of it. Another smell you might notice in your home might be the result of burning or frayed wires.
