Wouldn’t it be great to know with absolute certainty that, regardless of how hot it may get outside, your air conditioner will always be there to cool your home effectively, efficiently and reliably? The sad truth of the matter, though, is that there is simply no such thing as a 100% reliable air conditioning system. At some point, you will find that your system is in need of repairs. Ideally, you will discover this to be the case before your system should break down entirely. That way, you won’t have to worry about any extended periods of discomfort. To help you spot the need for air conditioning repairs in Bolingbrook, IL, we’ve put together a list of 3 common warning signs.
Soaring Cooling Costs
A sure sign that something is wrong with your air conditioner is an inexplicable spike in how much it is costing to cool your home. You really can’t expect to cool your home free of charge, obviously. However, if you are not using your air conditioner much differently than usual, but see big spikes in your usage costs, it is likely that there is a problem of some kind in need of repairs.
Hot Spots Throughout the House
Another sign that you need AC repairs is the development of hot spots throughout your home. Assuming that your air conditioner is of the right size for your home and is professionally maintained, it should be able to cool your home in both an even and effective manner. If it used to, but no longer seems to, you may have leaky ducts, a refrigerant leak, or issues with your fan.
Strange, Unfamiliar Sounds
Do you hear a clanging, hissing, or screeching sound coming from your air conditioner all of a sudden? If so, contact a member of our staff immediately, even if your system seems to be operating fine otherwise. These sounds may be indicative of a number of different problems, and their prompt resolution can help to minimize the risk of serious damages to your system.
