4 Signs Your AC Is Near Breakdown

All air conditioners break down eventually. Sometimes, you may be able to repair it, but a significant breakdown often indicates that it’s time for a total system replacement. No matter what the issue or diagnosis is, Signature HVAC can help.

We’re your West Chester, King of Prussia, and surrounding Pennsylvania area experts for all things HVAC. We’ll take care of you to get your air conditioner back up and running as quickly as possible.

How Do I Know My Air Conditioner Is Near Breakdown? 

1. Insufficient Cooling

If your system is cycling on and off more frequently than normal or isn’t providing the same cooling power it once did, it’s likely nearing the end of its life. ACs 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 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. That’s why it’s industry standard to replace air conditioners that are over 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 or older, contact us for AC replacement.

3. Frequent Repairs

If you’ve found yourself constantly calling Signature HVAC for yet another AC repair, it’s 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 on 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 HVAC technician will work with you to find the best replacement for your needs.

4. Unusual Noises

Any abnormal noise coming from your system is cause for an immediate inspection. If you begin to hear a strange noise from your unit and it persists, turn off the unit and call Signature HVAC immediately. Not all noises indicate emergencies, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Some noises result from dangerous leaks or damages and can compromise not only your AC, but your personal safety as well. Your Signature HVAC technician can diagnose the source and suggest a repair or replacement, depending on the situation.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs with your air conditioner, don’t worry. The experts at Signature HVAC can diagnose the source of your problem and suggest repair or replacement.

If you’re in Chester County, Delaware County, or Montgomery County, PA, call 610-738-8310 to schedule your inspection today.
