5 Signs It’S Time To Replace Your Ac
Eventually, it’ll get warm out, right? When it does, you want to make sure your AC is ready. Air conditioning maintenance in Sussex County often goes overlooked. Depending on its age and several other factors, it may be time to replace it. Here are five signs to be on the lookout for:
- Weak Airflow or Lukewarm Air
- If air is coming out of your AC at a weak rate or it simply isn’t cool, then obviously something is wrong. Your ducts might be clogged, restricting the airflow. Regardless of the cause, our experts will identify the issue and resolve it.
- Moisture Buildup
It’s normal for your AC unit to produce some moisture. If so much moisture is present that leakage is occurring, it may cause the system to malfunction or underperform. This occurrence creates a breeding ground for mold, posing a serious health risk to you and your family.
- Foul Stench
If a foul stench is emanating from your air conditioning system, not only may there be something wrong with its operation, but the air may not be safe to breathe. A burning smell can indicate a serious issue that requires immediate attention.
- Strange Noises
If your AC is rattling or squeaking, that isn’t normal. Most AC units hum in the background while operating, so if it’s operating at a sound level that’s louder than normal, that is also an indicator for you to call us to inspect it.
- Rising Energy Bills
If your monthly utility bills are higher than usual, your system might not be working efficiently. Even if your home is cool and comfortable, the unit may be working harder than necessary to do so. Upgrade to newer equipment to reduce your bills for the foreseeable future.
