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.

If you’ve been experiencing any of these signs with your air conditioner, don’t worry! The experts at Signature HVAC will be able to diagnose the source of your problem and suggest repair or replacement depending on what best suits your needs. If you are located in Chester County, Delaware County, or Montgomery County, give us a call at 610-738-8310 or contact us online to schedule your inspection today!

"I highly recommend Signature for HVAC service. The entires experience with Signature has been exceptional. The process was very customer focused starting from Scott McHale's engagement to organize the project to replace our old A/C, to an professional job John & Matt had done in installation, and Bob Seeger'r post installation service to troubleshoot the air flow damper, great job."

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

-Dennis Carlson

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
