How to Know It May Be Time for Air Conditioner Service

It’s the time of year we’re thankful for our AC. There’s nothing much better than walking into a nice, brisk house after being out in the summer heat. If you find that your system is not getting your home cool enough, there could be various reasons. It could be oddly hot outside, or may be stalled filters or dirty coils, or even your thermostat. But, it may be that the system is low on refrigerant. There are some warnings you can look out for to let you know that your refrigerant is running low and that it’s necessary to call in a professional for air conditioner service.

Higher Utility Bills

An air conditioner that is lacking refrigerant will have to run longer to try to cool your home. This results in higher utility bills. If you’ve noticed abnormally high bills it might be time to contact someone in to check out your air conditioner.

Ice Buildup or Water

If you notice any ice on your exterior AC unit, there’s a chance that there’s an issue. When you’re low on refrigerant, your system’s evaporator coil might get too cold and the moisture surrounding your refrigerant line will freeze. This could lead to compressor issues. If your compressor becomes damaged, and it’s not under warranty, it’s might be more cost effective to change out the entire outside unit.

Your Home Isn’t Cool

If your system is taking longer than it normally does to cool your home or if it’s not getting to the temperature set on your thermostat, your simplest bet is to have your system serviced. There are a great deal of things that could be taking place that a technician would be able to figure out.
