Signs That You Need Air Conditioning Repair Services

A few signs suggest your air conditioner might require repair, but not all are obvious. Here are the most common signs that your Chicago North Shore or Chicago Northwest suburb home needs AC services.

Rising Energy Bills

If you notice your energy bills going up without apparent explanation, your AC equipment might not be working as well as it once did. This leads to a decline in energy efficiency.

If this is the case, call a North Chicago heating and cooling contractor as soon as possible for HVAC services. Unattended issues tend to turn into bigger, more expensive repairs for HVAC units. Take care of issues promptly for lower utility bills and maximum efficiency.

Inefficient Airflow

If the airflow from your AC system is lower than normal, it could be a sign that the air filter has become dirty or clogged, or the internal fan is dirty or not operating properly.

Your AC may not be in immediate danger of breaking down, but you should still seek advice on restoring the AC to its full airflow capacity. Putting this off can lead to poor performance and expensive repair needs.

The System Is Short Cycling

If your AC unit is switching on and off frequently, this is a problem known as short cycling. You need HVAC professionals to diagnose and solve the root cause of this critical issue.

A mechanical fault could cause short cycling in the unit, preventing it from completing its cycle. As such, you should stop using the AC system and get it checked right away.

The Unit Produces Warm Air

If your unit isn’t producing the cool air you expected, it could indicate that the compressor is not working correctly or you have a refrigerant leak.

You should cease using the AC immediately and seek repair services immediately. Our team can get to the bottom of this issue and perform repairs that leave you a cool, satisfied customer.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Your ductwork could affect indoor air quality if ductwork is dirty or an air filter is clogged and needs replacing. Speak to an HVAC professional to identify the problem.

Benefits of Air Conditioning Repair Service

Aside from getting your AC up and running again, there is a wide range of benefits to having AC repair services performed in your Chicago North Shore or Chicago Northwest suburban home.

More Comfortable Air Conditioning

A regularly maintained air conditioner delivers a consistent and reliable stream of cool air to your home, time after time, to ensure everyone is comfortable. Prompt heating and cooling repairs curb issues quick so your North Chicago comfort system doesn’t operate under duress for extended periods.

Extended System Lifespan

Suppose you run your AC while it’s not working correctly. It’s understandable if concerns about costs prevent you from getting the necessary repairs. However, the longer the fault goes undetected, the more likely your system will become permanently damaged and must be replaced.

Scheduling annual AC maintenance service and promptly repairing any issues when they pop up will prevent this from happening. It also could extend your AC’s lifespan by several years.

Reduced Humidity and Odors

A regularly repaired AC system will maintain a consistent and comfortable humidity level in your home. Moreover, regular repairs will prevent the musty, stale smell that can sometimes come from older air conditioners.
