Air-conditioning service is a relatively broad term that refers to any task performed to maintain or fix the function of an AC unit. HVAC contractors perform air-conditioning service, and it is helpful to know when to call for professional assistance to ensure the proper function of your HVAC unit.
Signs an air-conditioning service is necessary
Anytime there is an issue with the AC unit, it is encouraged to seek assistance. However, there are certain issues that are more common. The following are six common air-conditioning complications that require servicing by an HVAC professional to properly fix.
The blowing air is not cold
Perhaps the most common problem people have with the air-conditioning is when the vents do not blow out cold air. This can be the result of a variety of underlying problems, such as a lack of refrigerant or issues with the condenser. Fortunately, it is most often easy for HVAC contractors to fix.
The airflow is restricted
In some instances where the home or building does not cool as it should, there might be cold air that comes out, but it is not strong enough. This often indicates restricted airflow. Restricted airflow could be the result of dirty or damaged filters, a clog in the AC unit, or a variety of other complications.
The energy bills are high
The fact is many people do not pay attention to their AC unit unless it affects their level of comfort. In many instances where there is an issue with the function of the AC unit, it does not affect comfort, but the effects are seen in utility costs each month. If the energy bill is abnormally high, it likely indicates air-conditioning service is needed.
There are strange noises
Besides the fact that it can become incredibly annoying, strange noises are a sign that something is wrong with the HVAC system. It can be the result of a number of issues, from issues with the blower motor to a lack of refrigerant.
There is a water leak
Water leaks are often hard to detect, but it is important to check for any leaks with the air-conditioning unit. If a leak goes undetected for an extended period of time, then it can potentially cause water damage to a home and lead to the need for an expensive repair.
The air quality is low
If the breathing air inside seems of low quality, then it could be due to an issue with the AC unit. Fortunately, HVAC contractors can improve air quality through air-conditioning services.
