Don’t just assume that if you aren’t sweating bullets, your AC is working correctly. In fact, there can be quite a bit wrong with your unit, but you may not realize it until the system experiences a catastrophic failure.
Schomburg Heating and Cooling have been in the AC business for decades. They offer the best heating and cooling services in Kansas City. Our highly-trained technicians have experience in finding little problems in units that may turn into big problems.
Here are some of the signs that your AC may need repairs.
Very little air is coming out of the vents.
You may notice that the air coming out of your vents is cool, but it may not seem to be blowing very hard. Weak airflow may signify that your unit’s compressor is not long for the world, or there is an issue with the ductwork.
The unit comes on for short periods.
If your unit seems to turn on and shut off continually, this may be an indicator that your unit needs service. While it may be a sign of a faulty thermostat, our technicians will look at the entire unit before determining that the thermostat needs replacing.
Your AC smells bad while running.
If there is a foul odor coming from your AC, this could mean that trouble is afoot. While the smell could be coming from wire insulation burning off, it could also indicate that there is mold in your air ducts. Of course, our technicians should be able to tell you the cause of the smell, but the important thing to realize is that you shouldn’t be embarrassed. Even the cleanest houses sometimes smell bad when the HVAC unit is not working correctly.
Your energy bills have doubled.
If you have lived in the Midwest for some time, you know that your energy bills are higher during the hot summers and the cold winters. But, if you compare your bills from one hot month to another hot month, and you notice a significant upswing in the amount due, it could mean that your AC unit is not functioning correctly.
Your AC is blowing warm air.
Even people who have no understanding of how AC units work should realize that you have a problem if warm air is coming through your vents. Give us a call, and we will be out as soon as possible. We know that having a working AC is more of a need than a want, and we will do all we can to get your unit working properly as soon as possible.
