People living in Arizona whether its Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa or Scottsdale know how valuable air conditioning units are. The climate is hot and the nights cold. The A/C is an essential part of any home or business. There are several red flags that signal that there is a problem with the unit. Our Licensed HVAC technicians can diagnose, repair, or replace broken units. These red flags signal that it is time to call in our professionals at Dukes of Air for help.
Warm Air Coming Out of the Vents– The most obvious red flag is when there is no cold air coming out of the units despite the thermostat being set for a lower temperature. Warm or hot air coming out of the vents show that there is a problem with the cooling unit.
Increased Energy Bills– Sudden changes in the average monthly energy bill are a cause for concern. Nobody wants to pay more than they need to cool their home, but this is also a sign that the unit isn’t performing efficiently for a variety of potential reasons.
Clunking Noises– Strange sounds coming from the A/C unit are an unwelcome intrusion in a home. Loud noises can get worse over time and potentially cause more damage to the unit.
Non-Stop Running– When a unit never stops running it hikes up energy use. It also means that the unit is working harder than it should and still might not be producing cold air. Repairs or replacement can save money on energy.
Dirtier Than Usual Filters– Regularly cleaned air filters are dirty, but when they are changed at the same interval and are suddenly filthy, there is a likely problem. The increase in dirt can mean the interior of the unit is dirty and dusty. A simple tune-up could be the solution.
With air conditioning units, it is better to take a proactive approach to their care. When a red flag arises like no cool air, loud noises, constant running, high energy bills, or filthy filters, then it is best to call the HVAC technicians. There’s no need to stay hot and uncomfortable when help is just a call away.
