Signs Your Unit Needs AC Repair
If you’re noticing your energy bill going up or not as much cold air coming out of your unit, it might be a good idea to have your unit checked out for an AC repair. These are the early signs that your AC unit is going to be needing an AC repair soon. It’s also something you shouldn’t wait on because the longer an AC unit is left alone in this state, the more dire the situation will be when it finally breaks.
Other signs to look out for that we will discuss further include:
- Warm air
- Frequent cycles
- High humidity
- Strange noises
- Bad smells
- Insufficient airflow
- Leaks of water or other substances

We Can Solve Your AC Issue
We can take on even the most stubborn AC problems:
- No power – Faulty wiring or tripped breakers can easily cut power to your air conditioner,
- Worn-out fan belt – When the belt that turns your fan motor and compressor gets too old, it can slip or stop providing the power you need to keep things cool.
- Refrigerant leak – A leak of your refrigerant can cause a hissing sound. If you hear this sound, you should be alert to the fact that you may have a leak.
- Frozen evaporator coil – If you have a frozen evaporator coil, your air conditioner will work harder to produce cool air. If you hear a clicking sound, this could be the start of damage because it’s an indication that there is not enough refrigerant for normal operation.
- Low sub-cool temperature – A low sub-cool temperature often results in very warm cooling and heating coils.
- Defective fan motor – You’ll know you have a defective fan motor if your unit runs for a while but doesn’t produce much cold air.
These are some of the signs that you may have an issue with your AC unit. If one or more of these issues occurs, it is time to call in professional help. You need someone who can provide excellent work at reasonable prices. It’s important to note that commercial. At Fresh Air and Heat, we specialize in difficult AC issues that other companies may not have been able to diagnose or resolve.
Inspect Regularly For AC Repair
Our team recommends performing regular inspections and maintenance to ensure maximum performance from your unit. Once a year is usually the best time for these kinds of inspections, and while most people choose to do it in the spring, you should know as a resident of the Sunshine State that any time is a good time for an AC inspection.
If you do not schedule regular inspections, minor issues go unchecked, and those minor issues become more significant. This can result in a snowball effect, where those more significant issues turn into more expensive issues. These inspections can lead to minor AC repairs, and while that can sound scary, repairs are a regular part of keeping your AC unit running at its most efficient.
What Do We Look for in an Inspection?
When our technicians arrive, they are experts and will know exactly what to look for when inspecting your AC unit. They’ll begin with a physical inspection to see if there’s any physical damage or wear and tear on your unit. This could be something as simple as the unit needing a good cleaning, or it could be as severe as a crack appearing. You should quickly take care of visible damage because it could result in more damage beneath that isn’t relatively easy to see. That is why our technicians can spot even the smallest of damages.
Whether or not there is any physical damage to your AC, our technicians will still look inside your unit to ensure that everything is running correctly. This is a process of looking at pulleys, checking alignments, and ensuring the drive belt is functioning correctly. Usually, what leads to these systems failing is the wear and tear of your AC is in use. When you live in Florida, you know that your system will be in constant use, so this wear and tear will be more constant. This is why regular inspections are essential.
What Should You Be on the Lookout For?
Even with regular inspections, there can still be times when your unit malfunction and needs AC repairs. This is why it’s crucial to stay vigilant for any signs that your AC could be in danger. While you can’t possibly notice everything, there are signs that you can look out for to make sure you stay on top of your unit’s health.
The most apparent sign could be in your electricity bill. When an AC unit starts to wear down, it will need to work harder to put out the same amount of air as usual. The rise in electricity cost this causes will be a sure sign that your AC unit needs AC repair. If you notice that your electricity bill is higher than usual, check your AC unit first. On a similar note, if you notice your AC cycling through more often than is necessary or cycling through the hot or humid air, it is good to contact Fresh Air and Heat to check it out.
Other signs that your AC unit could require inspection or repair are odd noises. We all know what an AC unit is supposed to sound like. When it makes odd noises such as squealing, grinding, thumping, or heavy knocking, that means there is likely something wrong with your unit. Furthermore, it has the possibility of blocking necessary air from entering your building. This is often a call for help, a sign that your unit requires AC repair. Our technicians should be able to identify the noise and solve the problem for you.
AC units in need of repair can also give off a concerning smell. This is usually due to water getting into the system and building up bacteria which causes an odor. Unfortunately, you will not be able to mask this smell with candles or spray fragrances. Furthermore, water leakage in the unit itself is also a problem that can damage your AC in the long run. You shouldn’t be able to smell anything when your AC unit is running, so if there’s an odor of some kind, then immediately call a technician for assistance.
