Common Causes and Signs That You Need AC Repair

Our ACs work overtime in Massachusetts to keep the summer heat at bay. But like any hardworking machine, they start to show signs of strain. Regular use naturally leads to wear, but the unexpected – like ice damage or the odd stone flicked up by a lawn mower – can really throw a wrench in the works, impacting how well our units keep us cool.


Signs that Your AC Isn’t Working Properly

Here in Massachusetts, we’re big fans of keeping things running smoothly – AC units included. When your air conditioning starts to give you the cold shoulder, or rather, stops giving you the cold air, it’s not just a minor hiccup. Keep an eye out for these telltale signs that your AC is whispering for some TLC:

  • Hearing weird noises from your AC? It’s speaking to you, and it’s not happy.
  • AC blowing air, is that anything but cold? That’s a problem.
  • Can’t get the AC to stick to one setting, or is it playing on-off relay races? It’s struggling.
  • Forever adjusting your thermostat just to feel a bit of cool air? That’s not how it should be.
  • And if it feels like the AC is on strike, no matter what you try, it’s definitely time to seek help.

All of these indicate problems with your AC, and they’re problems that we can fix. Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Instead, call us and we’ll be there for you soon.


Causes of Air Conditioning Failure

As we gear up for another sweltering summer, ensuring your air conditioning is in top-notch shape is crucial. Here are some common pitfalls that might be stopping your AC from performing at peak efficiency:

  • Thermostat Is Set Incorrectly: If your home’s temperature isn’t budging despite a running AC, double-check you haven’t set it to “fan-mode.”
  • Refrigerant Leak: Constant use can loosen connections, allowing refrigerant to sneak out.
  • Blown-Out Breaker Switch: ACs are notorious for wasting electricity, sometimes overloading the breaker. This is a safety feature, but it’s also a heads-up that your system’s working hard.
  • Broken Compressor: The heart of your AC, the compressor, can fail due to electrical issues, refrigerant problems, or overheating, leaving you in the lurch.
  • Dirty Coils and/or Fan Blades: When coils and fans collect grime, your AC’s efficiency tanks.
  • Dirty Air Filters: An unchanged air filter can suffocate your HVAC, leading to longer cool-down times or a system freeze.
  • Lack of Maintenance: A little preventative maintenance goes a long way. Annual service can head off many common AC issues.
  • System Needs Replacing: Sometimes, no amount of repair can save an aged AC from the intense summer heat. When it’s time for a new AC, it’s time.
