3 Signs Your AC Needs Repairs Quickly

air-conditioning-repairNo problem in your air conditioner should ever be allowed to go unaddressed for long. If there is an issue in your system, leaving it will only allow it to escalate until it creates a full breakdown. With all that said, there are some repair needs that may be a bit more serious than others. These are the ones you want to make sure to address fast.

Be on the lookout for these issues and, if they pop up, reach out to get an air conditioning repair in Oregon City, OR as quickly as you can. Otherwise, you may find yourself in need of a system replacement far earlier than expected!

If you notice any of the following issues, reach out to schedule repairs now before you encounter a major breakdown.

The system is short cycling

Short cycling is a term that refers to when your air conditioner’s cooling cycle is interrupted or cut short. This is going to be a big problem. When the cooling cycle is stopped early, the system will end up starting again almost immediately. This will lead to:

  • Increased energy bills
  • Larger issues such as ice build-up
  • A risk of the system overheating

If the system short cycles for an extended time, it can also cause the system to stop functioning completely. Make sure to have a technician examine your AC if it starts to short cycle.

Your AC has a delayed start-up

When you turn the air conditioner on by adjusting the thermostat, there shouldn’t be much of a delay between when you hear the thermostat “click” and when the system turns on.

But what if, instead, you hear repeated clicking and a longer delay of several minutes before your AC unit responds? If this sounds familiar, then you should contact an HVAC expert to examine your system. There may be problems with the electrical connections in the system or another harmful issue causing the delay.

The AC is unable to cool the air

Your air conditioner has been installed for the key purpose of cooling the air in your home. It is made to pull heat out of the air and send the now-cooler air supply throughout your house. If this isn’t happening because your air conditioner can’t cool the air, then you have a serious issue on your hands.

We do want to warn you that in some cases an air conditioner that has lost its ability to cool the air at all may need to be replaced. However, this issue may also denote a refrigerant leak or a problem with the air supply getting into the system. You can count on a trained professional to get the core issue diagnosed and figure out what solution is best.

Whether you have a major issue that could cost you the entirety of your AC system, or you need help with regular maintenance, you can always count on our team to get the job done right.
