Your AC Should Never Do This

Summer has blown by fast this year, hasn’t it? If you’ve been dealing with an air conditioning problem this summer, it’s easy for this problem to have slipped through your fingers. It feels like we blinked and then August was already here! You’ve had a little trouble staying prompt when it comes to your AC work so far—that’s okay! Just make sure you’re changing this habit going forward.

If you need work on your air conditioning in Orland Park, IL, then it’s time to call us. We know what it takes to set your AC up for success. It’s not easy work, but it’s well within our grasp. Call us at the first sign of an issue. We’re going to knock it out fast for you.

Your Air Conditioner Shouldn’t Do This

Here are a few things that your air conditioner should never do. If you notice any of these issues, it’s always best to call us sooner than later. We’re going to help you out ASAP.

Short Cycle

Your air conditioner should always run in regular cycles. A regular, even cycle means that your air conditioner is healthy. Anything short of this is a major system that you have significant air conditioning trouble in your future.

Are you a little confused about what short cycling is? Short cycling is when your air conditioner starts, runs for a short amount of time, stops, pauses, and then starts up again shortly after. It’s time for you to stop this problem in its tracks. It’s going to hurt your AC efficiency and wear down your AC in the process.

Make Alarming Noises

Do you notice sounds from your air conditioner like banging, rattling, scraping, squeaking, squealing, etc.? These are all bad sounds. Your air conditioner should never be described as “loud” and it should never make noises that grab your attention. If your air conditioner makes odd noises, then it’s time to call us and let our team pinpoint the issue.

Provide Inconsistent Cooling

Do you have hot and cool spots throughout your home? This isn’t a good thing. Yes, there’s going to be a natural imbalance depending on how your home is set up. Some spaces have more natural lighting than others, which causes them to be a little warmer than rooms with more shade. Significant temperature disparities are a bad thing though. Call us if you have this problem.

Be Unreliable

Are you able to describe your air conditioner as reliable? Really think about it for a second before you give us an answer—when you turn on your air conditioner, is there that momentary worry that your air conditioner is going to be unable to perform? This is a terrible thing. Your air conditioner should be perfectly matched to your home so that it’s always able to perform.

Emit Moisture

Have you noticed that the outdoor unit of your air conditioner is leaking? Moisture is a bad thing when it comes to your AC. This is a rule across the board. This means that moisture inside your home at the hands of your AC system is bad and moisture that affects your outdoor unit is bad too. You don’t want to let this go on unchecked for too long.
