1. Ice on the System
If you use a heat pump to cool your home, then you might see ice develop on it from time to time. It shouldn’t be a huge issue, though. In fact, it’s expected. That’s why heat pumps have defrost modes. If you don’t have a heat pump, and you use a regular central AC, there is really no good reason why this should happen.
There are bad reasons, though. You might just have a really dirty AC filter. You can check that on your own. If the ice is really building up, or if the filter seems totally fine, then it could be a refrigerant leak. That is definitely not a problem to ignore.
2. Strange New Sounds
Your air conditioner should be reliable. And not just in terms of cooling your home. You should generally know what to expect it to sound like. If your AC is unreliable or unpredictable in terms of its operating sounds, then it’s operation is probably soon to follow. What kinds of sounds do we mean?
Pretty much anything new or unusual. Let us know if your system is:
3. Odd Odors
Your air conditioner shouldn’t really be emitting much in the way of odors. Again, a dirty filter could certainly lead to this problem. But if it isn’t something as simple as switching out a dirty filter, there might be something else going on. In particular, be conscious of any burning odors, chemical odors, or certainly any musty smell that may bring mold to mind.
4. High Operating Costs
Just because your energy bill is automatically debited from your account doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be paying attention. You don’t want to be paying more than you should for your comfort. You also don’t want to ignore abnormally high operating costs, because it means something is wrong with your system! And it may only result in high costs today. Tomorrow, it could be a breakdown!
5. Subpar Cooling!
We’ll keep this one quick. When it comes to your comfort, good enough is not good enough. If you notice that your AC isn’t living up to your performance expectations, that is reason enough to give us a call.
