When the weather heats up, your air conditioning system sometimes has its work cut out, trying to keep your home cool. Air conditioning systems that have blocked filters, are low on gas, or are in need of a minor repair will struggle even more to do what is required of them and, if they are simply run without the necessary repair or maintenance work being carried out, could break down right when you need them most.
Here are some warning signs that your HVAC system may be in need of some attention:
- The compressor is slow to start or doesn’t start at all when the system is switched on.
- The air conditioner does not cool the house as effectively as it used to. Reduced cooling performance usually indicates either a refrigerant gas leak or a worn-out component.
- The system trips a breaker when it is started or while it is running.
- The system runs non-stop without ever turning off.
Don’t wait until that funny noise, reduced cooling performance, or other telltale sign escalates into an expensive air conditioning repair. Take action early – get a properly trained and North Carolina licensed air conditioning repair technician out to take a look and fix the system at the first sign of trouble. Repairs done early on tend to be simpler, faster, and cost less than those done after the whole system stops working.
