AC FAQ: Is It Time for Repairs?

ac-topviewChances are that you are really starting to get antsy waiting for the warm, sunny days of summer to arrive. Our winters are long and cold here in Connecticut, and we had some late season snowfall that really put a damper on things this year. At least we expect this from winter, though. Spring can be even tougher because, as we’ve seen, we can never really know what to expect in terms of winter. Fortunately, it won’t be long before things finally do really start to warm up.

Of course, summer can be pretty tough to enjoy fully if your air conditioner is not functioning properly. We’d love to set you up with an AC that is guaranteed to function perfectly at all times, but this is just not a possibility here in the real world. All air conditioners are subject to occasional operational problems. Keep an eye — and an ear — out for these common warning signs, and remember to schedule your AC repairs in Fairfield, CT at the first sign of trouble.

My Air Conditioner Is Costing too Much to Run!

If you have been in your home for a few years and have used the same air conditioner the whole time, then you probably have a decent grasp on how much you can expect to pay in order to cool your home during the summer season. Of course your air conditioning costs are going to fluctuate, and extended periods of very hot weather can drive up cooling costs. If you see a spike in your energy bills despite not using your system any more than normal, though, you could have air conditioning problems in need of repair. Keep an eye on your bills, and let us know if something doesn’t seem right.

My Air Conditioner Is Making Strange Sounds!

Do you hear a hissing sound when you walk past your outdoor unit? Does it seem like your air conditioner is just generally louder than usual? Has it started to make loud clanging, banging, or screeching noises that you’ve never heard before? If so, you should contact us to have the situation assessed. It could be something as simple as a worn out fan belt that needs replacing. However, you could also be dealing with refrigerant leaking out of the system, causing that hissing sound. Equally important to having your system professionally repaired is having problems professionally diagnosed.

My Air Conditioner Is Blowing Warm Air!

Perhaps the most obvious cause of air conditioning problems shy of a complete breakdown is warm air coming from your vents. If you notice this problem in just one area of the home, it could be due to the fact that your system has a leaky duct. Is your outdoor unit running? It’s possible that its breaker has tripped, and you need only reset it to start cooling air once more. The indoor unit could be cycling unconditioned air throughout the house. Of course, you could also have a low refrigerant charge, a malfunctioning thermostat, or other issues that require professional intervention.

Whatever problems you may face, contact Celco Heating and Air Conditioning for reliable air conditioning repairs.
