3 Signs You Might Need Air Conditioning Repairs, Newark, Ohio

Summer is in full swing, which means your AC is working night and day to keep the house cool and comfortable. An AC breakdown during the hottest part of the year can leave your home uninhabitable, so keep an eye out for signs of trouble. Below are some of the most common indicators that you might need air conditioning repairs.

How to Tell If the AC Needs Repairs

1. It Runs Constantly

When the interior of your house reaches the desired temperature, the thermostat should automatically turn the AC off. Of course, during the summer, the air conditioner is in constant battle with the heat, so it’ll likely cycle more often. However, if it never stops, you might have a problem with the thermostat, or your evaporator coils might be covered with debris. This can cause extra wear and tear on vital components, possibly leading to much more expensive air conditioning repairs down the road.

2. It’s Making Strange Noises

3. Utility Bills Have Skyrocketed

Energy expenses naturally increase in the summer, but a bill significantly higher than last year’s could be a sign of impending trouble. The problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter or worn components forcing the system to work harder than necessary. Air conditioning repairs can bring utility bills down and extend the life of your equipment.
