A malfunctioning air conditioner is simply no match for the heat and humidity of Hiawassee, GA. Even minor mechanical issues can leave you at the mercy of the elements without quick and effective AC repairs. Keep your cool by calling in the pros as soon as you notice any of these signs of trouble.
Short Cooling Cycles
Your air conditioner is designed to turn on and continue working until your home reaches the thermostat’s set temperature. This is known as a full cooling cycle. Sometimes, however, AC systems may cut off prematurely and continue to run shorter, more frequent cycles. This short-cycling process is damaging to your system and wastes a lot of energy. It’s often caused by a poorly sized AC installation, but it may also indicate failing mechanical components.
In general, modern cooling systems are quieter than ever before. That makes it all the more troubling if you hear a terrible racket whenever your system kicks on. Whether it’s grinding, squealing, hissing, thumping, or any other unusual noises, a timely repair visit is imperative. Odd noises may be caused by anything from a worn bearing in your blower motor to a failing compressor. Of course, many of these issues can also be prevented through regular AC maintenance.
Poor or Inefficient Cooling
The average air conditioner lasts around 15 to 20 years. Over time, they often become less effective and efficient at cooling your home. Eventually, even AC maintenance may not be enough to correct these issues. The clearest signs of mechanical trouble are blowing warm air, inadequate airflow, and rising energy costs. If you’ve noticed these signs, it’s likely one or more mechanical components may need fixing.
As with any mechanical system, your air conditioner is always vulnerable to unexpected malfunctions. For the quality service you need to keep your system running well, check out Radlee Heating and Cooling’s professional AC repairs or call 706-703-4883.
