When your air conditioner begins to malfunction, you know the next step is to call an HVAC technician to fix the issue. But sometimes, it can be difficult to know which noises and issues are normal and which ones indicate a serious problem. Here are some indications that it’s time to bring in a professional.
1. Strange Noises
Most AC units make some amount of noise when in operation. However, strange noises can point to an issue with the system. Some examples of strange noises include banging, clicking, buzzing, and humming. In many cases, listening to the sounds that an AC unit is making can help an HVAC technician determine the issue. For instance, a banging sound usually points to a malfunctioning or broken part within the unit’s compressor.
2. Weak Airflow From the Vents
An AC unit that’s working properly sends a strong current of cool air out through the vents into the rooms of a home. However, if you put your hand up to an open vent and find a weak flow of air, it’s a sign of a malfunctioning AC. Weak airflow can be the result of a compressor in need of repair, or it can point to an issue with the filter in your AC.
3. Warm Air
Warm air pouring from your vents is one of the more obvious signs of a malfunctioning AC. The flow of warm air may be a result of low refrigerant levels in the system. An experienced HVAC technician has the knowledge to diagnose this issue.
