You may have encountered this scenario in many aspects of your life: something has gone wrong, and instead of having it addressed promptly, you delayed repairing an item or system. You kept using it. Then, when you finally got around to seeking repairs, you found that ignoring a small problem had caused a much larger problem to occur. This can happen with many things—a bicycle, a car, a gutter on your house. And it can definitely happen with your air conditioner.
But what if you want to get repairs done as soon as a problem occurs, to avoid having this unpleasant scenario play out… and you simply don’t know how to tell when there is a problem with your air conditioner? Here are some basic signs you can keep an eye (or an ear) out for so that you’ll know when it’s time to call a professional.
