As the summer heats up, you’ll naturally be using your air conditioner more and more. This is an effective way to beat the heat, but extensive use of your AC unit can cause wear and tear, or reveal existing problems. We at Sky HVAC want to help you and your family stay comfortable this summer, and to help you do that, our team has put together a list of signs to watch for in order to tell if you need air conditioner repair.
- Blows Warm Air- One clear sign that something is up with your air conditioner is warm air coming from your vents. If you put your hand by a vent and feel warm air, you probably need air conditioner repair.
- Makes Loud Noises- Another sign you should be wary of is loud or unusual noises coming from your AC unit. All air conditioners will make some noise as they run, but if you hear grinding, screeching, or scraping sounds from your unit, you should call our team at Sky HVAC to find out if you need air conditioner repair.
- Smells Bad- Your air conditioner is not supposed to stink. If you notice a bad smell coming from your unit when you turn it on, it’s likely that you need air conditioner repair. A musty smell usually indicates mold somewhere in your system, while a burned smell is likely the result of wire insulation burning out.
If you notice any of these signs in your home, or find something else unusual happening in your air conditioner, call our team at Sky HVAC. We’ll identify the problem and get your AC running smoothly as soon as possible.
