5 Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

5 Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

Kansas City metro’s summers are no joke! We all know how hot and humid our midwestern summers can be. If your air conditioner is not working optimally, you want fast and efficient maintenance and repair.

When the unexpected breakdown of your air conditioner happens, you might be wondering when to call a repair specialist.

Don’t wait until the hottest day of the year. Here are 5 warning signs your air conditioner may need immediate service.

The Unit Won’t Turn On

If you turn down the thermostat and the unit does not kick on, or house temperature stays the same, or even rises, this could indicate a potential problem with the cooling system.

Your unit may not be receiving power, or the signal could be getting lost from the thermostat to the unit.

Ensure your thermostat is set to cool, check your thermostat batteries if required, and check the circuit breaker. If the AC unit still doesn’t kick on, it’s time to call a repair specialist.

Your Unit is Blowing Warm Air

If you feel warm air blowing from your home vents, check the thermostat to ensure it’s in cooling mode and set to a lower temperature than your home’s current temperature.

If your vents continue to blow warm air, the issue could be with the compressor or restricted airflow.

Poor Airflow from the Unit

Insufficient airflow is a common sign your AC isn’t working efficiently, or you have a blockage preventing air moving through your home’s vents, a possible clogged air filter, or even a broken motor.

If you’re experiencing poor airflow from your AC unit, you may also notice a high spike in your utility bills.

Unusual Noises

While you may notice your unit makes common low-level noises as it kicks on or off, loud or sudden noises could be a signal you may have an issue with your cooling system. If you notice a grinding, knocking, hissing, or other strange noise coming from your unit, this could indicate that something is wrong. This type of problem should be diagnosed by a repair specialist to address the issue.

Moisture Near Your Unit

If you have noticed water or condensation near your unit, it is an important indicator your cooling system isn’t working properly.

While this could be a minor issue, like a blockage in the draining tube and does not indicate an emergency, you will want to fix it promptly to avoid damage to your home or avoid mold growth. Moisture may also indicate a refrigerant leak, which can be a more serious issue.
