Common AC Problems You May Experience This Summer

As temperatures continue to rise outdoors, you’ll probably be spending more time inside your home taking advantage of your AC. In order to keep your cooling system working properly and running smoothly, did you know that you should schedule a professional tune-up at least once a year? Without routine maintenance, wear and tear can cause your AC to malfunction. Here are some common problems you may experience this summer without a tune-up:

Power Problems

The most obvious sign that you have a problem with your AC is start up issues. Your cooling system should turn on when you want it to. It should also be able to reach your desired temperature with ease. If temperatures are high outside, your safety could be affected by a broken air conditioner. If it doesn’t turn on at all or it switches often, you should start looking for a replacement.


Does your cooling unit have any wet spots? Have you noticed extra condensation lately? Any excess water needs to be addressed ASAP, as it can quickly lead to mold or mildew. Because they can grow and spread at a rapid rate, it can harm your air quality as well.

Inadequate Cooling

Your AC should be able to cool your home or a designated area within it. If you start to notice that some rooms or areas aren’t being cooled as well as others, it’s a sign that your system is no longer capable of cooling your whole home. A Roy’s professional will be able to diagnose the problem with your system, but if your model is outdated or broken, it may be in your best interest to have it replaced.

Strange Sounds

There’s no reason for your AC to be making any loud noises. If you hear strange or obnoxious sounds, you should have a professional come to check it out. It could be that a loose piece has detached or that you have some debris built up somewhere along your duct system. On a more serious note, it can also be a sign of motor failure. Whatever the reason, you should schedule a professional tune-up.

Warm Air

Your air conditioner should only blow cool air that gets dispersed evenly throughout your home. If yours is blowing warm air, you could simply need a refrigeration refill. A leak, on the other had, can be much more difficult to fix. This needs to be addressed by a professional immediately, as it can cause other problems throughout your home. If you’ve already spent money on repairs in the past, it’s in your best interest to replace your AC.
