117892962Are you wondering whether your air conditioner needs to be repaired? Knowing the telltale signs of air conditioning problems will alert you to the need to call your Tucson heating and cooling specialist. Keep an eye out for the following signals that could indicate it’s time to call a pro.

High Energy Bills

One of the first indications that your air conditioning isn’t functioning properly can be a high energy bill. If you notice a sudden uptick in the total you owe at the end of the month, it could be due to an inefficient air conditioner. The less efficient your air conditioner becomes, the more energy it must consume to keep your Tucson home comfortable.

Loud Noises

While it’s normal to hear some noise while your air conditioner operates, a change in the type or volume of noise you hear could indicate a problem. Banging, squealing, screeching, or other noises associated with your air conditioner’s function should be checked out by a professional. These noises often indicate the need for replacement parts or additional lubrication to restore normal and quiet function.

Continual Operation

If you’ve noticed your air conditioner running constantly, it might mean the appliance isn’t functioning very efficiently. When it can’t keep your home cool, your air conditioner will turn on frequently in further attempts to reduce the indoor temperature. Any changes in your air conditioner’s operation should be brought to the attention of your heating and cooling service.

Low Airflow

One way to test your air conditioner’s health is to hold your hand in front of an air register while the unit is on. Do you feel cool air flowing, or is there barely any movement? Little to no airflow is a sure sign that your heating and cooling system should be cleaned or repaired.
