How to Know It May Be Time for Air Conditioner Service07/13/2016 The heat this time of year will make anyone appreciative for their diligent, consistent air conditioner for keeping them comfortable. The relief you feel walking into a cool home from being outside in a scorching summer day can’t be beat. There are a multitude of reasons you may walk in one day and find that your AC isn’t keeping things as cool as it used to. Occasionally, it’s entirely too hot outside for your air conditioner to keep up (this could be a sizing issue), or maybe your filter has become clogged, your thermostat may be the reason or perhaps your coils are filthy. An AC that isn’t keeping you cool may also be running down on refrigerant. If this is the circumstance, there are a few tell-tale warnings you can be on the look-out for to hint it is time to call in the experts at Air Quality Solutions in Grove City for air conditioner service. Increase in Utility Bills If you’ve seen an increase in your utility bills, that is a possible sign of low refrigerant. Your air conditioner will work relentlessly and longer attempting to cool your home if it is lacking refrigerant. This will bring a noticeable increase in your monthly bills. Your Home Isn't Cool If you’re uncovering that your air conditioner isn’t reaching the temperature set on the thermostat or that it’s taking extensive periods to cool things down, you’ll want to have your system inspected at by an expert. A technician will be able to address the problem happening with your unit and get you cooled down quick. Ice Buildup or Water An absolute sign of trouble is noticing any ice on your outdoor AC unit. Low refrigerant will cause your unit’s evaporator coil to get too cold, which can cause the moisture around your refrigerant line to freeze. A frozen compressor line could lead to compressor damage, which is an expensive repair. It’s a good idea to call an expert at the first sign of ice or water. If any of these symptoms of low refrigerant are occurring with your air conditioner is an important to call in a pro to get things looked at and fixed before it leads to a major breakdown.
