Four Signs Your AC Is Near Breakdown
All air conditioners breakdown eventually. Sometimes, you may be able to repair it back to health, but a significant breakdown often indicates that it’s time for a full system replacement. No matter what the issue or diagnosis is, Signature HVAC can help! We are your West Chester experts for all things HVAC. We will take care of you to get your air conditioner back up and running as quickly as possible.
Here are some common indications that your air conditioner is near breakdown:
1. Insufficient Cooling
If your system is cycling on and off more frequently than normal, or is not providing the same cooling power it once did, it is likely nearing the end of its life. AC units wear down eventually and can no longer work at the same capacity. You may notice pockets of warm air throughout your home, or your unit might even be blowing warm air. If your West Chester air conditioner is visibly struggling, contact Signature HVAC and one of our technicians will evaluate whether replacement is your best option.
2. Old Age
Air conditioners have gotten quite advanced over the last few years, with each new model being more efficient and cost-effective than the last. Because of this, it is industry standard to replace air conditioners that are more than 10 years old. Older units are almost universally less efficient, making them costlier to run. Newer units are smarter and more effective in their cooling power. If your unit is over 10 years of age, contact Signature HVAC for AC replacement today!
3. Frequent Repairs
If you’ve found yourself constantly calling Signature HVAC for yet another AC repair, it is probably wise to simply replace your cooling system. Frequent repairs indicate that your unit has lost its full potential; your money will be better spent towards a replacement instead of continuous repairs! Repairs add up, so while the initial cost of replacement may deter you, the energy savings from the new unit’s efficiency will soon make up for the difference. Your Signature technician will work with you to find the best replacement for your individual needs.
4. Unusual Noises
Any abnormal noise coming from your machine is cause for an immediate inspection. If you begin to hear a strange noise from your unit and it persist, turn off the unit and call Signature HVAC immediately. Not all noises indicate emergencies, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. Some noises result from dangerous leaks or damages and can compromise not only your unit, but your personal safety as well. Your Signature technician will be able to diagnose the source and suggest a repair or replacement, depending on the situation at hand.
