Reach out today for your air conditioner repair in Cincinnati, OH so you can rely on your system on even the hottest of days this summer.

How to Tell Your AC Needs Repairs

It isn’t always obvious whether your air conditioner needs repairs or not. Some warning signs may seem like “quirks” of your system. That’s why we want to help clarify things. These are some of the key warning signs to watch for that indicate you need to get repairs scheduled for your AC system.

  • Odd noises: There are the noises you are used to hearing from your AC such as the whoosh of air or even some movement from your ductwork. But what about new sounds? Anything outside the norm is usually a cause for concern. Sounds like rattling, hissing, screeching, or clanging are sounds that should prompt a call for an inspection.
  • High energy bills: When you use your air conditioner regularly, it will affect your energy bill. But unless you are trying to cool your house down to 65° on a 90° day, you shouldn’t see huge spikes in energy usage. Large increases in energy usage that don’t match with your use of your AC may indicate a system in trouble.
  • Short cycling: Your air conditioner turns on but only runs for a few brief minutes before shutting down, only to turn right back on because it hasn’t made a dent in the indoor temperature. This is known as short cycling and it’s a costly problem. Both a warning sign of trouble and a catalyst for additional issues, short cycling should be addressed by a professional technician ASAP.
  • Hot and cold spots: When you walk through the house, do you notice some areas are cool while others feel just as hot as the air outside your home? These hot and cold spots are indicative of a problem with the distribution of cool air throughout your home. Maybe it is an issue with your ductwork or bad blower fans, but whatever the cause the sooner you get a technician to find the core problem and repair it, the better off you’ll be.
