3 Signs Your A/C Unit Needs Repair, Urbana, Ohio

It’s easy to take an air conditioning system for granted until it suddenly stops working. Fortunately, most A/C units will provide warning signs before completely shutting down. The HVAC contractors at Fetz Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning in Urbana, OH, have over 60 years of experience fixing air conditioning problems and compiled this list of the most common signs an A/C unit needs repair.

3 Warning Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs a Repair

1. It’s Noisy

A/C unitHow much noise your A/C unit makes depends on several factors, including its type, model, and year — all of which affects its efficiency. Modern units have been designed to be as efficient as possible, keeping noise to a minimum. More noise than usual can indicate a loose connection or bad motor. A technician can easily diagnose the cause before it gets worse.

2. It’s Not Cooling Anymore

Have you noticed it takes longer than usual for a room to cool down once your A/C unit has been switched on? This is the most obvious and common warning sign your unit needs attention. The solution could be as simple as adding coolant, but problems with the motor and fan could also be to blame.

3. You Feel Poor Airflow

If you notice your unit isn’t blowing cold air the way it once did, try placing your hand over a vent to test the airflow. If it feels weak or blows warmer air than usual, the culprit could be a dirty air filter. If airflow is still weak after changing the filter, call an HVAC contractor to inspect your unit.

The best way to avoid unnecessary repairs on your A/C unit is through routine maintenance. The HVAC contractors at Fetz Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can inspect, clean, and fix minor problems with your unit on a regular basis. Call (937) 652-1136 or visit their website for more information.
