7 Signs You Need to Call Your Local HVAC Service

Here are seven signs that indicate you need to contact your local HVAC service:

  • Unusual Noises: Strange sounds like banging, clanking, or squealing from your HVAC unit may signal mechanical issues that require professional attention.
  • Weak Airflow: If you observe insufficient airflow from vents, it might indicate blockages, ductwork problems, or a malfunctioning blower fan, necessitating the expertise of an HVAC technician.
  • Inconsistent Temperatures: Rooms with significant temperature differences or frequent fluctuations may point to an HVAC system problem requiring diagnosis and repair.
  • Foul Odors: Musty or burning smells from HVAC vents could be a sign of mold growth, electrical issues, or other problems that need immediate professional attention.
  • High Energy Bills: A sudden increase in energy bills without a corresponding rise in usage may suggest an inefficient HVAC system, requiring maintenance or repairs for improved energy efficiency.
  • Frequent Cycling: HVAC systems frequently turning on and off (short cycling) could indicate issues like an oversized unit, a malfunctioning thermostat, or component problems, requiring professional evaluation.
  • Visible Leaks or Moisture: Any signs of leaks or moisture around the HVAC unit or near vents may indicate problems with condensate drains, refrigerant lines, or other components, necessitating inspection and repair by a qualified technician.

Promptly contacting your local HVAC service provider when you notice these signs is crucial to diagnose and address issues before they lead to extensive damage or a complete system breakdown. Regular maintenance and timely repairs contribute to efficient HVAC system operation and a longer lifespan.

Santa Barbara Air Conditioning

Do you find yourself more stuffy or feeling generally sick when the AC is on? “Air conditioner sickness” could be the culprit. While not inherently dangerous to your health, factors of an AC can cause discomfort.

The following can cause “air conditioner sickness”:

  • A too cold temperature can dry out your sinuses and aggravate allergies

It’s best to have a professional look at your unit and ensure good indoor air quality.

AC Repair in Santa Barbara

Just like regular doctor visits are necessary for good health, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance and checkups. This will ensure your system works efficiently and can help prevent costly repairs in the future. While most are caught off guard with AC problems, there are signs you can look out for that indicates deeper problems.

Common signs that you need air conditioning repair include the following:

  • AC is blowing warm air – If your air conditioner is blowing out warm air instead of cold, there could be something wrong with the air condenser or refrigerant.
  • Thermostat not working – The thermostat regulates the temperature in your home, so when that doesn’t work, your AC won’t know when to cool your home.
  • AC making loud noise – If you hear loud squealing or banging sounds coming from your air conditioner, it can mean one of the parts is loose or the motor belt is broken.
  • AC not cooling your home – If your air conditioner isn’t cooling your home, it could mean a dirty air filter or condenser that’s blocking the passage of cold air.
  • There is a rise in your energy bill - If your air conditioning system is not functioning the way that it should, it will have to use up more energy to work, leaving you with a higher energy bill than usual.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to contact the AC professionals at West Coast Air Conditioning. We’ll accurately diagnose the situation before providing reliable air conditioner repair in Santa Barbara.
