If you’re not sure if your air conditioner is in need of repair, you need to read this quick guide. While it won’t cover every situation, AC Executives has put together some of the most common signs your AC needs professional help. Call us for reliable air conditioning repair in Tarrant, TX if these signs sound familiar to you.

1.​You notice strange noises coming from the AC. Clanging, banging, and clunky sounds are signs of a loose part or other serious problem. While hearing your condenser and fan cycle on and off are normal, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from your AC you shouldn’t wait to have a technician take a look. A small part replacement can quickly escalate into a larger repair that will take longer and cost more to perform, so call AC Executives right away.

2.The air conditioner isn’t cooling the house like it used to. If it seems like the AC isn’t working as well and you’re having to turn the thermostat lower and lower, you might just need a coolant refill. The good news is this is a quick job. The bad news? It could be a sign of a leak in your air conditioner. While leaks can be patched, they can be difficult to find and unfortunately are never a permanent solution. If your air conditioner relies on Freon or R-22 to cool the home, costs are expected to rise for this coolant over the next few years. The EPA has banned production in 2020 and is ordering a reduction leading up to then. Check into a new system that relies on a non-ozone depleting coolant that will outperform your old AC and save you the money you’d put into patching and recharging the coolant.

3.Room by room, there’s a huge variation in temperatures. When one room is a hot sauna where the AC just isn’t reaching while another gets overly cool, start by checking your vent registers. Make sure they are all open and free of blockages from furniture. If this doesn’t make a difference, your AC could be the wrong size for your home’s needs or it could be improperly placed. Have a technician take a look. Also, consider patching ductwork to help air circulate more effectively around the home.

4.Your bills have been rising. When utility costs are going up and you haven’t changed the amount you’re using your air conditioner, there may be a clog or broken part causing the air conditioner to work harder to cool the home.When was the last time you had a professional technician clean out the AC? If it’s been more than a year, your system is overdue. Not only will cleaning reduce allergens floating around the home but it boosts performance in your AC. If there’s another issue, you definitely need a professional to take a look. ​
