Signs Your AC Is Going Out

post img

There is nothing more frustrating that coming home from a long day of work only to walk into a steaming hot home. While no one can completely prepare for this, there are certain warning signs you can look for that show that your AC is going out. With regular maintenance from a St. Louis cooling company, you can be sure that your air conditioner will work perfectly throughout the summer.

Your AC Is Loud

One of the first signs an air conditioner is having problems is when it starts to run loudly. Air conditioners should be almost completely silent and should certainly not be audible within the home. If you notice that it is exceptionally loud when kicking on, sounds like it is grinding when it runs, or just sounds like it is off, contact an HVAC professional to come perform an inspection.

High Energy Bills

Another sign that you have air conditioner problems are spikes in your energy bills. While there are bound to be fluctuations based on usage, if it seems like your energy bills have climbed for no apparent reason, it is a sign that your air conditioner is struggling to work. A professional can find any problems and correct them before the air conditioner completely dies.

AC Unit Is Leaking Water

Another sign that your air conditioner has a problem is pools of water around the unit. If there is a leak in the unit or if something is frozen, it is a sign that the air conditioner is having problems. This is especially true if your unit is more than ten years old. If you notice that there is moisture around a unit, it is time to have your air conditioner inspected.
