The summer months have arrived, and they’ve brought the heat back with them. With the daily temperature average in Meridian lying in the 90s, our technicians at Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning understand that an HVAC system is an investment worth having in this kind of heat. It is essential that your air conditioner is running smoothly to ensure you protect that investment and stay cool during this time.
The sooner you can identify when your cooling system is on the decline, the less time you’ll spend braving the heat and save yourself the stress of having a broken AC! Below is a list of signs that your air conditioner may be in need of repair.
We’ve all experienced the familiar ick of walking into a muggy room, many of us think this is solely to do with the weather outside, but it could potentially be speaking to the state of your air conditioner.
The most common cause of a humid home is that your air conditioner is failing to dehumidify properly. This could mean the evaporator coils in your HVAC system need tending to.
Blowing Warm air
During the months of intense heat, the last thing you want to experience is warm air blowing through your air conditioner. If consistent warm air is cycling through your system, it could be time for an AC repair.
Lack of Air Flow
Little to no air flow coming out of your vents is a sure sign your system could be in need of a tuneup. Many people experience cool air coming through their vents, but it is not strong enough to circulate in the room. This too is not a good sign. Your unit should be producing a strong, consistent flow of air.
Your AC unit should be making little noise. The typical sounds you will hear are fan rotations and the starting up of your system. Noises should always be even and smooth – rattling and shaking sounds do not belong in your unit. Contact a technician to see what the problem could be.
Slow or Unresponsive Units
Your cooling system should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute to kick on after you’ve adjusted your thermostat. The temperature in your home will not change that fast, but, in a smooth running unit, you should hear your unit coming on. If you find your unit is taking an unusual amount of time to turn on, it’s time to call a repairman.
