The summer months are here and that means temperatures are rising and countless households across the country are relying on air conditioners to cool their homes. Unfortunately, this is also the time when homeowners start to realize that their air conditioner systems aren't working like they should be. Are you suspicious your air conditioning system isn't working properly? Below, let's look at some of the classic signs that your system could be in need of a repair.
Lack Of Cool Air
The most immediate and obvious sign that your air conditioning needs repairs is when it's not producing cool air. There are actually a number of different causes for this kind of failure to happen, but the best way to pinpoint what is wrong is to hire a professional inspect your system.
Are you hearing odd noises that you don't remember from last year? Ticking? Buzzing? Rattling? Fortunately, many times just a loose screw or fitting is the culprit. Other times, however, issues with the blower motor or the fan blade could be the cause. Contact trusted Northern Virginia HVAC services to get to the bottom of this issue.
If operating your air conditioning produces an odor, there could be something wrong with your system. This could mean that there's something wrong with the air conditioning unit itself, or something growing in (or obstructing) your ducts. Either way, it's a professional job to fix.
Puddles Of Water
An air conditioning unit produces moisture during operation, but that moisture should be collected by your system-- not your floor. If you are noticing puddles around your unit, then there could be a blockage somewhere that needs to be cleared.
Your Energy Bills Have Suddenly Increased
This is one of the most unfortunate side effects of a broken air conditioning system because by the time the homeowners notice anything wrong, it has already cost them. Lack of system efficiency is a serious issue for homeowners and it is advised that they have their system looked at as soon as they discover an unexplained spike in their energy costs.
