With a humid and warm climate in Dallas, TX, keeping up a well-working air conditioning unit is necessary especially this summer. If your cooling system does not function properly, your summer can be miserable. Most often, your air conditioner will show clear signs that urgent tune-up or repair job is needed. We have pointed out three (3) common signs that an A/C tune-up is necessary.
A hiss or tick sound coming from your air conditioner indicates loose, worn out or broken parts. The different sounds that it emits signals different problems in the system. A squealing noise may indicate a tripped belt or bearings of the motor. If it’s a buzzing sound that you hear, it’s a sign of malfunctioning compressor, loosed or damaged A/C components. Have your system checked by professionals as soon as possible to prevent bigger problems.
You are lucky that your air conditioning unit gives signs when it needs tuning or repairing, and one of those are bad smells coming from it. An odor problem like rotten, musty/moldy, burnt-wire or stinky smell could mean a dirty air filter or excess water in the condensing unit. Usually, the odors are not as dangerous as you think. They are only indications that your system needs servicing.
Two of the most common causes of low airflow in any residential or commercial space are dying compressors and clogged air filters. When the compressor malfunctioned, your A/C may fail on its job in blowing cool air in the entire house. With a broken compressor, your indoor air may feel warmer than normal as the system barely cools your home. Meanwhile, clogged air filters can hinder air from passing easily through the ducts and other A/C components. Failure to fix these issues right away can impact the quality of your indoor air, or worse, lead to respiratory problems.
