How To Know You Are In Need Of AC Repairs

AC Repairs | How To Know You Are In Need | CampbellCare

As the sun emerges here in BC and temperatures heat up, there is no doubt that summer is just around the corner. If you have an AC unit, you will likely rely on it to keep you cool in these hot summer months. 


With that, you will want to ensure your AC unit is in shape to keep you cool. So what if you are unsure whether or not your AC unit needs repairs? Well, here’s how to know you are in need of AC repairs. 

  • Airflow Feels Warm Or Hot
  • Insufficient Airflow
  • Unusual Noises
  • Bad Odours
  • Water Leaks


Airflow Feels Warm Or Hot 

If your AC unit is on and set to cool mode, but you feel warm or hot air blowing out of it, it is a sign that something is wrong. This could mean the airflow is being restricted by something loose inside the unit, an air compressor issue, or a refrigerant problem. 


Insufficient Airflow 

If the airflow feels weaker than usual, there may be an issue with the motor, fan, or air compressor. An HVAC technician can usually solve this problem with a tune-up of the unit. 


Unusual Noises 

If you hear rattling, squeaking,  grinding, or scraping sounds while the AC unit is on – or really any loud, unusual noise, it’s possible there are loose parts inside the unit. A loose part inside of the AC unit is a concern and should be taken care of as soon as possible. 


Bad Odours 

An AC unit should never smell any type of way. If you smell any unpleasant odours coming from your AC unit, you should deal with the issue immediately. A strong odour could indicate a burned-out wire inside of the AC unit. If you sense a musty smell, that could indicate there is mould inside the AC unit. Getting the problem diagnosed as soon as possible is crucial to avoid causing health issues for you or your family. 


Water Leaks 

Air conditioners rely on refrigerant to cool your home and may create condensation as it operates. But neither refrigerant nor condensation should accumulate enough to constitute a leak. If you notice water leaking or a pool of water near or around your AC unit, you should seek immediate help. Water leaks could lead to mold or mildew issues if left unattended.
