Watch for These Four Air Conditioner Problems
When it comes to appliances, noises that are out of the ordinary are the last thing you want to hear. Whether it’s clanking, buzzing, banging, screeching, or some combination thereof, we recommend turning your unit off and calling one of our experts for AC repair before further damage is done.
Repeatedly turning on and off, also known as cycling, can indicate a few different problems. The condenser or evaporator could have too much dirt and dust on them, and an experienced AC repair technician can clean them and have the unit running perfectly.
Cycling can also indicate that your air filter is dirty and needs to be replaced. We recommend replacing your air filter once every three months to maintain good air quality and to prevent buildup from impacting your system’s performance.
No Cold Air
Obviously, an AC unit that won’t put out any cold air is in desperate need of repair. In most cases, your refrigerant levels need to be checked, but wait for an experienced HVAC technician to take a look — this is one problem that you don’t want to try to fix on your own.
High Energy Bills
Keep an eye on your utility bills as you use your air conditioner more frequently. While higher bills are expected due to the increased energy usage, bills that are much higher than previous ones should cause concern.
Higher bills aren’t automatically an indication that your air conditioner is broken — you could have a faulty thermostat, a broken seal on a window or door, or poor insulation. That said, it’s worth getting in touch with an experienced Oshawa AC repair company to rule out your unit as the cause. If it is, we’ll have it fixed and working properly as soon as possible!
