 Signs You Need Air Conditioner Repair

Although a lack of cold air is usually the first sign to alert you to a broken-down AC, other symptoms can indicate a problem with your unit. Some common signs include:

  • The AC unit will not turn on at all
  • Unusual noises, such as humming, coming from any part of the unit
  • Pools of water around the AC unit
  • Musty, burning, or smoky odors
  • The system is turning on frequently
  • There is high humidity in your home, especially if your AC unit includes a dehumidifier
  • Your cooling bills are increasing more than usual

If you use a thermostat to program your air conditioner, knowing its settings and functions can also help you notice when there is a change in how your air conditioner is functioning. Aire Serv of Metairie offers thermostat installation services to help you have the most efficient system.

When You Need an Air Conditioner Replacement

Regular repairs and maintenance are the foundation for keeping your air conditioner running, but in some cases, the best option for cool air in your come is to choose AC replacement. Over time, wear and tear can lessen the efficiency of your system or stop it from working altogether. Aire Serv of Metairie offers new air conditioner installation and AC replacement services. We are here to review your options, including upgrading the system to a more efficient model or changing to a different cooling solution, like a heat pump. Once you decide on the next steps, we will expertly perform AC replacement, removing your old unit and adding any additional needs for your new one, such as ductwork installation.

Should You Choose AC Repair or AC Replacement?

Many factors can help you decide whether an air conditioner repair or replacement is better for your home. Aire Serv of Metairie can work alongside you and help you when you consider the following:

  • Unit Age Air conditioner units over ten years tend to be less efficient and more prone to breakdowns. Newer, more efficient models can decrease utility costs and amount of repairs.
  • Amount of Air Conditioner Repairs The more an air conditioner gets used, and the older it becomes, the more likely it will need repairs. If the frequency and overall cost of repairs continue to grow, it may be time for an AC replacement. A good rule of thumb is to schedule a replacement when the cost of repairs and maintenance is over half the initial cost of your unit.
  • Maintenance Frequency Similar to repairs, a high amount of AC maintenance appointments can end up costing an increased amount over time. Frequent maintenance may indicate more extensive problems with your cooling system. An AC replacement can combat frequent repairs, saving you stress and money. 
  • Energy-Efficiency Newer, updated air conditioner systems are a more efficient choice for your home. Signs such as uneven, slow, or no cooling can mean your system is not running efficiently, wasting money and increasing the likelihood of repairs.

Regularly maintaining your air conditioner is a great way to catch problems early. Scheduling maintenance or tackling AC repair as soon as issues arise will prevent more serious air conditioner repair down the line. Regular AC maintenance and repairs can increase the longevity of your unit and keep your indoor air quality healthy. Keeping your air conditioner in good working condition also increases your system’s energy efficiency, reducing utility costs. The experts at Aire Serv of Metairie know your family’s safety and comfort are your top priority, so we recommend having your AC system checked at least once or twice a year. During a maintenance appointment, we inspect and clean the unit, ensuring no part needs replacement or repairs.
