3 AC Repair Signs To Look Out For
With the weather finally heating up as we move into spring, it means more work is in store for your home’s AC. Your Memphis home’s air conditioning system has a lot of hard work ahead of it this year, and that means more risk of something going wrong with your system. This period of heavy use is the most likely time for something to go wrong with your system, but unfortunately, it isn’t always immediately apparent when this is the case. To help give you a better idea of when is the right time to make the call for AC repairs, our team of skilled pros at Precision Air Conditioning & Heating, your premier Memphis HVAC contractors, have taken the time to put together this handy list for your reading convenience.
No Cool Air
If you notice that there doesn't seem to be any cool air coming from your home's AC vents, or the air just doesn't feel as cool as you remember it being before, this could likely be the sign of a fairly serious issue with your system. A lack of cool air coming from your vents can be indicative of several different problems. Whether it's due to your Freon levels being too low or a sign that your compressor has failed, you're going to want to have a professional come out and take a look to get to the bottom of the issue.
Poor Air Flow
Notice that the airflow coming from your vents seems to be weaker than usual, or some rooms of your home are getting cool air while others aren't? There could be several different causes, and with each one, you're going to want to have a professional come out and take a look right away. Weak or inconsistent airflow throughout your home could be due to a failing compressor or even damaged ductwork, and regardless of which cause is the root of the issue, you're going to want to have it corrected as quickly as possible to restore comfort to your home.
While all air conditioning systems make a bit of noise while in use, if you notice that your system is being louder than usual or has begun to make strange noises, like squealing, grinding, or grating, it could be a sign that your unit is due for replacement. Failing to address these issues promptly could easily lead to a total system breakdown, in which event you and your family would be stuck in a house without air conditioning at all until a professional could get out and take care of the issue.
