The last thing you want during a hot Palm Desert, CA, summer is to experience trouble with your air conditioning unit. Here are some signs that signal you need an air conditioning repair.
Pay attention to strange sounds coming from your AC unit. A vibrating noise sometimes happens when the pressure drops due to clogged filters.
You might hear rattling if the ductwork sealant isn’t effective anymore. A squealing sound indicates a belt needs replacing. Any odd sounds need to be immediately inspected so that you don’t risk a major AC repair job down the road.
Does it feel like your home is over 100 degrees, even though your thermostat reads 75 degrees? Try resetting the thermostat. If that doesn’t work, then schedule a maintenance appointment so your technician can figure out the problem.
Your air conditioner might have a leak, or it was undercharged when installed if the refrigerant levels are low. Bring in a professional technician to fix any leaks, inspect the repair job and charge the system with the appropriate refrigerant level. Your AC unit will perform best when the refrigerant charge matches what the manufacturer recommends.
Dirty Air Filters
Your AC unit is put under unnecessary strain when you let the air filters become clogged with dirt and debris. Airflow is restricted, indoor air quality suffers, the blower motor works overtime and the situation can lead to a major AC unit breakdown.
Electrical Control Failure
Your AC unit won’t turn on if the fan controls or compressor are worn out. This isn’t a DIY job. Have a professional technician diagnose and fix the issue for you.
