How do you know if your air is malfunctioning? 

Usually, your AC system will send you signs of a problem before it starts failing.  By noticing these signs early, you can save a lot of money on a major breakdown, and they are also really easy to notice yourself and consult an expert.

Here are five signs that may indicate there is a problem brewing with your air conditioner that needs to be addressed.

The airflow has decreased

If you notice a drop in airflow from your AC system, the first thing you should check is the filters. They may be clogged and this will reduce the airflow in your home, causing the system to be forced. They should ideally be replaced every 1-3 months, depending on usage. Weak airflow can also be due to a faulty blower or other equipment malfunction. If you replace or clean the filters and the problem persists, you can contact us for advice to prevent the problem from escalating.

You are making strange noises 

It’s normal for air conditioners to make some noise when you turn them on or off. But if your equipment makes unusual loud or sudden noises, this may be a malfunction.

If you hear grinding or whistling noises, it could be serious. In these cases, it is best to contact an AC service technician for advice.

High humidity

It is normal that in summer and spring you go out and find a high humidity climate, however, this should not be replicated in your home, more if you have an AC system. Your team should be able to regulate these humidity levels, and if this doesn’t happen, you should have an expert check and diagnose the problem.

Water leaks

Your air conditioner produces condensation when it operates, this is because it needs refrigerant to cool. Despite this, none of the liquids in your AC equipment should build-up or leak. 

Water buildup in your air is a clear sign that something unusual is happening and you should check it to avoid more serious problems or damage to your equipment.
