AC Repair Greenwood, IN

Don’t suffer needlessly. People will often put up with a poorly functioning air conditioning system without realizing it. They will sometimes attribute it to the weather getting hotter or bad insulation or even their own lifestyle being too active to ever allow their bodies to cool off. One or many of these things could be adding to the problem, but it’s most likely a problem with the AC itself.

If your AC is not working adequately, you may lose valuable sleep, spend all day sweating, get easily agitated without knowing why, and a whole host of other issues.

Things to Check

First of all, check the obvious: is your AC as cold as it used to be? It’s best not to assume that by turning the air conditioning on, it’s automatically going to start cooling the house. Make sure the thermostat is turned to a low temperature. After it’s been running a few minutes, feel the air coming out of the vents. The more vents you check, the more you can rule out whether any vents are obstructed before declaring your AC broken. Also make sure that each room feels like it’s around the same temperature. If one part of the house is very cold and another part is not, the problem may lie with your thermostat.

If you have a decent flow of air coming from the vents, then you can rule out problems with your ductwork and your AC unit’s compressor. Now that the AC has been on for a while, do you notice any strange smells? Pungent, foul smells usually mean that your AC’s wire insulation has burned out. Smells that are musty indicate mold buildup somewhere inside the unit or ductwork. Mold needs to be taken care of immediately. Also check for moisture around the unit. This can be indicative of a variety of problems—or future problems.
Further, any grinding or squealing sounds indicate that your unit needs service. You don’t want to wait until the unit breaks down. AC repair in Greenwood, IN is less costly than having to replace the entire unit.
