- Inadequate cooling: This is probably one of the most common warning signs. If your system’s ability to cool has recently fallen off, or if you have noticed a slow decline in its ability to cool your home, it could be a sign that you need repair. One of the preventive measures you can take, one that is also necessary for consistent operation, is to replace your air filter regularly. This will keep your system clean and clear of dust and debris.
- Strange noise: If you hear hissing, grinding, buzzing, or banging, these could be signs that something is not right. In general, you should expect your AC, especially the outdoor unit to make some noise. But, if the noise radically changes pitch, or it sounds wrong, there is probably something wrong with your system. Make sure you have a pro come take a listen.
- Spike in energy costs: If you notice your energy bill jump from one month to the next, without a corresponding increase in usage, then it’s possible your system needs professional attention. While there are numerous reasons for this occurring, there may be an air leak somewhere within the system, or possibly low refrigerant.
These are just a few warning signs. For more information, or to schedule a Raleigh, NC air conditioning repair, call Raleigh Heating & Air today!
