6 Signs Your HVAC Unit Needs Maintenance

Have you ever wondered when it’s time to call an AC company to have them come look at your heating and air system? Everything works great until it doesn’t, and these are some of the signs that you may need air conditioning repair.

You have weak airflow.

The first sign you may need air conditioning repair is if you experience a sudden drop in airflow through your vents. There are several reasons why this could happen. The simplest is that your air vent is too dirty, causing the system to work in overdrive. This then freezes your A-coil, and it simply needs time to thaw out.

However, if your air filter is fine, then it means something else is blocking the airflow. It could still be related to the system freezing or something else entirely. The best solution is to schedule air conditioning repair with Beehive Heating and Cooling.

You have hot air blowing through your vents.

Alternatively, you may suddenly experience hot air blowing through your vents. This could signal a problem with the outside air compressor. If it’s on, and your breaker isn’t tripped, it means that you need a professional to inspect the system ASAP.

You see standing water in or around your unit.

The natural cooling of warm air will create some moisture runoff. That’s why your furnace should have a drain pipe running from the condenser coil to your sump pump pit. However, if you notice excessive moisture, including standing water, it’s a huge warning sign. You should schedule an air conditioner repair appointment right away.

It’s making strange noises.

Have you ever noticed that your air condition system all of a sudden sounds significantly louder than it should? Although difficult to sometimes pinpoint to the untrained ear, this is often a precursor to larger HVAC problems. Your blower could be malfunctioning or there could be a problem with the outside unit itself.

The air coming from it smells bad.

Along those lines, if you start to notice a smell coming from your vents, it’s a strong indicator of moisture buildup within your system. This could be mold or mildew growth within your ductwork and is obviously a major health concern. Eliminating this as well as fixing the problem should be a top AC repair priority for you. Stop using the system and call our team ASAP.

Your energy bill seems unusually high.

Finally, it’s a foregone conclusion that electric bills will be higher in the summer due to increased usage. However, a subtle sign you need air conditioning repair is if you see a significant jump in any given month when the outside temperatures wouldn’t have warranted such an increase.
