Here are the seven common signs your system needs AC repair:

Air Conditioning Repair

Malfunctioning Thermostat

If your thermostat isn’t functioning as it should, it could be an early sign you need to conduct an AC repair as soon as possible. The thermostat takes the temperature of your spaces to determine whether the room needs heating or cooling. If the thermostat no longer adjusts the temperatures accordingly, then you know it’s time to call in a professional to assess the system.

You’ll also know your thermostat isn’t behaving normally if the room becomes too hot and stuffy, or too cold. It could be a sign the device is misreading your room temperature, or is working for too long or too short. Be sure to get a professional HVAC repair service provider for efficient tune up of your thermostat.

Production of Strange Sounds

You’ll know your AC is on by its familiar distant hum. If everything is silent, your HVAC system may have switched off, especially if your indoor spaces are already cool. However, if your AC starts producing squealing, screeching, banging or grating sounds when you turn it on, it should to a serious problem.

These strange noises indicate a problem with your system, such as a slipped belt, or poor lubrication for moving parts. An expert can locate the malfunctioning part causing the strange sounds, and repair it accordingly.

Leaks from the System

Leaks from the unit also signal the need for an urgent AC repair in your home. Keep an eye out for liquid accumulation in places other than the condensation line, which may release some water in the process of cooling or heating your home.

But other leaks, such as refrigerants, are a sign of a malfunctioning HVAC system. Consult an AC repair professional because a refrigerant leak can turn out to be a serious health hazard. Find out if it’s a blockage or a burst pipe, and have an expert fix it immediately to prevent further damage.

Strange Smells

You can also use your sense of smell to detect problems with your AC system. A foul odor, or musty smell, from your AC points to the presence of mold in the cooling unit or ductwork. Mold creates a perfect environment for the spread of germs and other harmful pathogens, so you’ll have to take urgent action.

The strange smell could also be the effect of a burned out wire padding in the vents. It could lead to a dangerous electric fault caused by short-circuiting. An expert HVAC technician will be able to identify the problem, and conduct the necessary AC repairs.

No Airflow in the Home

The AC is on and the thermostat is working perfectly, but you realize there’s no airflow in your home. It means no air is flowing in and out of your spaces, signaling a fault in the HVAC system. No airflow makes it difficult for the system to cool or warm your spaces because these functions rely on air movement.

The problem may be a failed compressor, in which case you’ll have it replaced by an expert, or a blockage of the vents. Be sure to consult an expert to check the system out and accurately diagnose the problem.

High Humidity

While summer and spring always result in sticky weather, you don’t expect your indoor spaces to have high humidity. If your AC can’t keep up with the high humidity, it’s time to have it checked by a professional.

The professional will assess the system quickly, and let you know if you need to recalibrate the AC or get a whole-house dehumidifier. An efficient AC should have no problem dealing with high humidity – unless it suffers a malfunction.

Too-Frequent Cycling

Regardless of the weather, your AC should experience fairly routine cooling cycles. It may turn on more frequently on hot days, but if you notice it’s turning on more frequently, you may want to have it checked. You need an expert to diagnose the problem and tune the system appropriately.
