Air Conditioner System Getting Old? 3 Signs It Needs To Be Repaired


If your air conditioner system is getting older, you need to start watching out for problems. Knowing problems early will result in you getting them repaired quickly so you won't have to replace your system. Below are three signs that your air conditioner needs to be repaired by a professional.

Smelly Odors

If you smell an odor inside your home when your air conditioner is running, this is a sign it needs to be repaired. If you smell an odor that smells like mildew, there could be mold built up in the evaporator coil, the condensate line may be clogged, or you could have mold in the ductwork that runs in your home. It is very important that you get your air conditioner cleaned promptly as mold spores will get into your home. This can cause your family to become sick.

If you smell rotten eggs when the system is running, it may be that a small animal, such as a mouse, has crawled into your ductwork and died. Unfortunately, this smell will become much stronger when your unit is running. In a case like this, you need to hire a pest control company to find the animal and remove it. 

Feel Warm Air

If the air coming from the vents inside of your home is warm instead of cool, you may have a problem with your thermostat. Check it to make sure it is on the cool setting and that the temperature is set right. If you continue to have warm air from your vents, it may be a more serious problem. For example, the airflow may be restricted or there may be problems with the compressor inside the unit. 

Runs More than Normal

If you notice your air conditioner is running much more than it normally does, this could be due to the weather. This is very common if the weather outside is quite hot. If the weather is not the cause, your system needs to be tuned up. Hire an HVAC company to do this for you and provide maintenance. 

In addition, this can also be caused by a problem with the blower, or something may be blocking the air that goes to the blower. You also need to check the air filter and, if it is dirty, change it. If you continue to feel warm air, you may have to replace the air conditioner.
