My AC Isn’t Working—Help!

angry-manAlright, it’s the middle of summer and you suspect something is wrong with your AC. Surely, you know that the best thing you can do for a faulty air conditioner is schedule your repairs at the first sign of an issue, but still, how can you be sure that there is really something wrong? You don’t want to just go around making phone calls willy nilly, right?

Okay, freeze right there! You should never hesitate to contact a professional… even if you aren’t sure if there is a problem! But, in case you are wondering, there are a number of signs that should automatically warrant a phone call, and below, we’ve listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more.

So, Is There a Problem?

As we mentioned above, there are a number of signs that suggest it’s time for AC repair in Brandon, FL, including:

Low Cooling Output

There are a number of reasons why your air conditioner might not be providing you with enough cool air. But no matter what, you are going to need to call in a professional to pinpoint the source of the problem and repair it accordingly, as quite obviously, an air conditioner that can’t keep up with you cooling demands is certainly not doing its job correctly.

Strange Noises

Your air conditioner is not inherently noisy. In fact, the only sound you should ever hear coming from your air conditioner is the sound of air gently whooshing through the vents. Therefore, sounds that resemble screeching, banging, grinding, rattling, or humming should definitely be a cause for concern. Fortunately, your AC repair technician will be able to fix the problem in a jiffy!

Short Cycling

Short cycling is a term used to describe when your air conditioner repeatedly turns on and off without ever completing a full cooling cycle. Not only is short cycling extremely inefficient, but it also places a ton of strain on your AC! Therefore, the best thing that you can do if you notice that your AC keeps turning on and off is to shut off the system and call for repairs right away.

Higher Bills

A tell-tale sign of an air conditioner in disrepair is higher energy bills. If you find that you are paying more and more to keep your home cool, it is quite likely that it is time to call in a professional repair technician. Why pay more than you should have to for comfort?

You Need Professional Repairs

We can’t stress enough the importance of hiring a professional for your AC repairs. Only a professional has the tools, training, and knowledge to safely and correctly handle the complex repair needs of your AC.

And sure, there might be plenty of amateurs willing to service your system but remember, an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. That’s why it is best to call in a professional and get the job done right the first time around.
