Crawfordsville Air Conditioning Repair Service
Picture it: it’s July, and it’s a sweltering 95 degrees outside. Eggs are frying on sidewalks, and popsicles don’t stand a snow-globe’s chance. And to top it all off, the AC goes out in your house.
With temperatures that high, having no AC is classified as an emergency. If you live with elderly family members, they could be at risk of having a heat stroke. Having no AC can also increase humidity in your home, which can lead to mold formation and nasty smells.
At Edwards Royal Comfort, we understand that we are being trusted to enter your home, and we don’t take that lightly. Our highly trained technicians provide the highest-quality service while making the transaction quick, smooth and painless. Our goal is to be in and out of your home quickly, with the job done to the highest standard.
What to Do if Your Air Conditioning System Isn’t Cooling
Is your AC running constantly but your home barely feels any cooler than outside? Here are some things homeowners can check if their AC system isn’t cooling properly.
In a typical home with no pets, you should be changing your HVAC filter every 90 days. In a house with one pet, you should change it about every two months. If you have no idea what an HVAC filter is or where it is, you should definitely change it. A dirty filter can clog your system and cause damage, not to mention the air won’t be as clean.
Make sure your thermostat is set at a desired temperature and those pesky kids aren’t changing it. Consider a lock box for it if people change it often.
We can help make sure that air is flowing through all the ducts smoothly and that there aren’t any obstructions in the ducts.
Common Signs Your Crawfordsville Air Conditioner Needs Repaired
There are several signs your AC might be in need of a repair. Here are some things an HVAC professional will assist you with:
If your system starts smelling funky, this may be a sign that mold is growing inside of it due to condensation or leaks.
Lack of airflow
Your system may have been obstructed with something that is impeding air coming in or going out.
Any sounds such as grinding, squeaking, squealing or heavy vibrating are an indication that you need to get your system looked at ASAP.
Cycles on and off
This is called “short cycling” and is definitely a sign that something is wrong. Some of the issues could include a broken thermostat, a refrigerant leak or coils that have iced over.
Water leakage/ice on coils or refrigerant lines
If your AC unit is leaking, this likely means there is a problem with the condensation drain. When it gets clogged, it can cause fluid back up and leakage. Also, if there is not enough warm air flowing into the AC unit for it to then cool, your pipes may ice over. This can be caused by obstructed air ducts or dirty HVAC filters.
An AC unit is meant to remove moisture from the air. So, if your home is very humid, this means your AC is not doing its job properly and that it’s definitely time to get it looked at.
No cool air
This is probably the most sure-fire sign that there’s something wrong with your AC unit! Making your house cooler is an HVAC unit’s main job, so if your house is hot with the AC running on full blast, there is definitely an issue.
Blocked AC compressor
The compressor can become obstructed, and air flow can be blocked. A simple cleaning will alleviate this issue.
Refrigerant absorbs heat from the environment to help cool your home. A leak means your system is working harder to cool your home and also that a chemical compound is floating around in the air – neither of which is good.
Electrical wiring issues
Something may have become damaged in the wiring that is causing your HVAC not to work.
Dirty HVAC interior
If there are questionable smells coming from your AC system, it may be an indication of mold growing inside the system. This means it’s time for a full system clean up. We can help!
