Warning Signs That Indicate Your AC is In Need Of A Repair

Your air conditioner often gives off warning signs before it completely stops working. It is our job to pay attention to these indicators. However, unless you have training and experience handling cooling units, it is easy to overlook problems. That's why it's important to call an AC repair professional right away if you notice any of the following.

Common Signs You Need AC Repair:

  • The cooling unit won't turn on - First check the fuse box or circuit breaker to make sure it's not an electrical problem and if it's not then contact our San Diego AC repair experts.
  • Water is pooling around the air conditioner - If you have water leaking from your AC it's likely the result of a leak in the condensate line or drain pan and those parts can be replaced no problem.
  • Weird noises and vibrations occur while the AC is on - You should have an idea of what your AC sounds like. If you notice any abrupt changes or sounds audible from another room then contact our AC repair specialists.
  • The unit hums but the fan does not turn on - If you're not getting proper airflow coming from your AC unit it could be the blower fan that's in need of repair.
  • The air won't cool, despite what the thermostat reads - It's possible that your thermostat is broken or that your cooling element isn't operating properly.
  • Smells that are off - If you have foul smells coming from your ducts then it could be that you need duct cleaning. But if there's a burning smell coming from your AC or your ducts in the summertime then give us a call.

The Importance Of Regular AC Maintenance

Just like other units in your home and business, your air conditioner needs to be regularly maintained to preserve high-quality performance. However, too often, we don't notice the cooling system until it starts acting up. Regular check-ups can alert you to common problems such as worn-out belts, defective motors, and refrigerant leaks before they become a major issue. Our skilled San Diego air conditioner service technicians can handle any issue your cooling unit throws our way.

To Repair or Replace, That is the Question

It can be difficult to decide whether to repair your air conditioner or simply invest in a new one. While some AC systems simply need a tune-up, others definitely need to be replaced.

What To Consider When Choosing To Repair Or Replace:

  • Utility bill - Older air conditioners use more energy, causing an increase in utility rates. Consider whether replacing your AC will save you money in the future.
  • Age of cooling unit - Air conditioners were not meant to last forever. If your cooling unit has surpassed its life expectancy, it may be time to replace it.
  • Investment cost - Buying and installing a new air conditioner can be a major investment, which not all of us can afford. Consider your own financial situation and determine whether it is smarter to focus on repairs or replace the whole unit.
