6 Signs You Need to Replace Your Air Conditioner Part 2

Temperatures in Riverview and throughout Florida are pretty comfortable right now. Humidity is low and you can keep the windows open at night. However, if you are a Florida resident, you know that the comfortable temps of March will quickly give way to the muggy conditions of the summer. It’s critical that you are prepared for it. If your AC unit is not functioning properly, it’s time to contact the Riverview air conditioning service technicians at Bloomingdale Air.

In part one of our series on the signs that you need to replace your air conditioner, we provide a number of indicators that you should not ignore. We will continue this series by providing more important signs that you need to take action immediately. You do not want to wait until your AC stops working to repair or replace it.

Is Your Air Conditioning Unit Making Odd Sounds?

It’s alarming when your AC makes uncharacteristic sounds. What’s worse is that it’s an indicator of an issue. For the most part, air conditioning units should operate quietly. A system that makes a grinding or squealing noise may indicate that a belt has slipped out of place or that motor bearings are broken.

Are You Not Getting Any Cold Air?

Even more alarming, you are not getting cold air. Or the air in certain rooms is colder than others. This is an indicator that a Riverview AC repair technician should be contacted immediately. This may mean that their is a clog in the ductwork that’s blocking air flow.

Does Your Air Conditioner Smell?

Air conditioning units should emit clean air. When this doesn’t happen, it’s the indicative of a problem. Burning smells may point to an issue with wiring. Musty smells may mean mold is present. In either case, it’s critical that you contact a service technician immediately. Both scenarios pose a risk to your personal health and the health of your unit.
