Signs Your AC Needs Repair
Your AC Unit Makes Strange Noises
All air conditioning units are expected to make some level of noise when they operate. What homeowners need to pay attention to is when their unit makes strange or loud noises.
Banging, screeching, buzzing or rattling noises should never be ignored. Oftentimes, these sounds indicate a broken element in your AC unit.
AC Is Running Constantly
Usually, a unit that is sized incorrectly will result in a cooling system that wears out or breaks down before its market lifespan. An AC unit that’s too small for your space will work continuously to cool your home.
Conversely, a unit that’s too big will short-cycle, or turn on quickly between cooling cycles. Either way, an AC that runs constantly will waste energy, cool inefficiently and run up your utility bills.
Air Conditioner Is Blowing Warm Air
This can be caused by a number of issues, from refrigerant leaks or a malfunctioning compressor to clogged condensate lines, dirty filters or buildup on the evaporator coils.
With so many possibilities, it’s best to call in a professional AC technician if your cooling system is blowing warm air. Our team can quickly identify the source of the issue and repair your system safely and efficiently.
AC Has Low Airflow
While this issue is often caused by air duct obstructions like dirty filters or blocked vents, sometimes the issue is more serious. Refrigerant leaks can also result in poor airflow and a decrease in AC efficiency.
If you suspect your unit has a coolant leak, do not try to repair it yourself. Refrigerant is a hazardous material that should only be handled by trained professionals. Reach out to our team for dependable AC repairs.
Possible Refrigerant Leak
Leaks are an obvious sign of damage, no matter if it’s a water leak or a coolant leak. Your AC is a closed system, designed to move refrigerant throughout a system of coils between your indoor and outdoor units.
A break in a line will disrupt the unit’s function and affect how your cooling system runs. Again, if you have a refrigerant leak, do not try to repair it yourself. Contact the Surgi’s team for trusted AC leak repairs.
