6 Signs You Need AC Repair

Most homeowners aren’t HVAC experts, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t responsible for monitoring their AC systems anyway. It can be difficult to recognize that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly if it doesn’t fully break down, but it becomes easy once you know what to look for. Keep an eye out for these signs that you need air conditioner repair.

Frequent Cycles

Each time your air conditioner runs and then turns off is known as a cycle. While we learn to easily tune out the sound of the AC running, most people notice when it turns on and off. If your AC is cycling more frequently than normal and seems to be constantly running, you’ll likely notice. This is a sure sign that something is wrong with your AC, and you should call a trustworthy HVAC company if you notice it.

Poor Airflow

Low airflow is a common sign that some part of your AC is clogged or blocked. If your AC is on but it feels like little to no air is coming out, you should check your air filter first to see if it’s dirty. If not, the problem could be as simple as dirty ductwork or a broken fan motor, but it could also be something more serious. If your filter is dirty, remember to replace it every one to three months to avoid blocking airflow.

Warm Air

If you feel warm air coming out of your vents, first check the thermostat to ensure it’s set correctly. If the thermostat is set to cool but warm air still coming out, call on a professional to take a look.

High Humidity

You can expect the summer to be hot and humid — but not when you’re inside. Your air conditioner should automatically moderate the humidity in your home. If you feel the stickiness of humidity inside, it indicates a problem with your AC system.

Water Leaks

It’s normal for condensation to form on your air conditioner while it’s running, which is why there’s a condensate drain pan underneath the unit that catches any dripping water. However, a clog in the drain can cause water leaks around your indoor AC unit. If you notice leaking water near your AC, call an HVAC technician to take a look.

Unusual Odors or Noises

Strange odors or sounds from your appliances are never good, your air conditioner included. If you smell musty, moldy odors from your vents or your AC starts making loud noises while cycling, don’t ignore it — schedule an appointment with your HVAC company.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very Professional

Chandler did an excellent job checking out our heat pump. He was very professional, communicated well, was responsive to our questions and I was very happy with everything he did.

Steve M.

Honest and Trustworthy

Our AC went out during a late summer heatwave. Called Barkers and Victor worked very hard to get the outside unit up and running. Two hours later we conceded to the death of a 29 yo unit. Victor notified the office the next morning, and within 24 hours we had a complete new system installed, and the house cooled by the time I got home from work. Highly recommend. Honest and trustworthy.

Susan H.

Very Impressed

We were impressed by this company from the first phone call. Reed was an exceptional young man; very personable and professional. The installation team of Mike, John and Cody did an excellent job. Barker’s is a business with high standards and we are very satisfied with everything about them. So glad we found this company!
