Common Indicators That Your Air Conditioner Is in Trouble

As much as we here at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. value our clients, we know that you don’t want to see us approach your door on too regular a basis. When you allow our skilled technicians to install and maintain your air conditioning system, you can avoid many of the problems that AC systems may encounter. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a 100% reliable cooling system, which means that you are going to require repairs at some point. When that point in time arrives, it is important that you schedule your repair services as soon as possible. Here are some indicators signalling trouble with your AC which can help you to do so. Contact us the moment you suspect the need for air conditioning repairs in North Seattle.

  • Increased Cooling Costs: During the summer season, you are going to run your air conditioner quite a bit. Energy isn’t free, so you can expect to see a rise in your utility bills. You should also have a general idea of how much it typically costs to cool your home, though. If you notice a spike in your cooling costs that you simply cannot account for, there may be a problem with your system resulting in decreased efficiency. Repairing any such problem(s) promptly will allow you to get back to cooling your home in a more efficient manner.
  • Decreased Performance Quality: There are a lot of different components in a whole-house air conditioning system, and problems with any of them may lead to a subpar cooling performance. Refrigerant leaks, damaged air ducts, and countless other issues may be to blame. Regardless of what is causing your cooling problems, the only way in which to properly diagnose and resolve completely the root of any problems is to schedule repair services with a qualified professional.
  • Strange Sounds or Odors: Some problems, like an air conditioner that will not cycle on when temperatures rise, have a sense of urgency about them. Others, like unfamiliar sounds or odors coming from your system when it is in operation, are a bit easier to ignore. We must inform you, though, that even “minor” issues with your AC may indicate very serious problems at play. Don’t let those problems spiral out of control by ignoring the signs that something is wrong. Contact G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. as soon as you have any cause for concern with your residential cooling system.
