When you start to experience problems with your air conditioning system, these may be signs of a reliability issue that could end up costing you more if left unaddressed.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 5 reasons you might want to call the HVAC professional at Eagle Air Cooling and Heating for AC repair.
1. Your Home Doesn’t Get Cool when Running Your AC
We know that the Phoenix, AZ metro area summers are extremely hot. With summer temperatures regularly over 100 degrees, many residents run their AC systems almost continuously. This puts more wear and tear on your AC unit.
If you notice that your home is staying warm despite running your AC for longer periods of time, you may have a serious problem. If you find that warm air (rather than cool air) is exiting your AC vents throughout your home, this may be an indication of a potential issue worth investigating further.
When your AC unit is not cooling your home, contact the AC repair experts at Eagle Air Cooling and Heating to diagnose any potential issues.
2. Your Electric Bill is Too High
No one likes to pay a huge electric bill, especially in Phoenix, AZ. But a really high summer electric bill could be an indication that your AC unit may need to be repaired or even replaced. This is especially true if you have an older AC unit which may be near the end of its useful life and is much less energy efficient than newer AC systems. A well-maintained, newer and more energy efficient Air Conditioning unit should keep your home cool while reducing your energy costs.
If you think your summer electric bill is too high, call Eagle Air Cooling and Heating today.
3. Your AC Unit is making Loud Noises
A well-maintained, air conditioner should make a consistent and usually modest humming noise while running. However, if you’re hearing unusually loud noises such as banging, whistling, screeching or rattling coming from your AC unit, this may be a sign that your AC system may have a serious issue which could result in a breakdown.
The typical causes of loud or unusual air conditioner noise may be due to loose parts; issues with its bearings and belts; problems with the fan or coil damage.
In order to make an accurate assessment, contact Eagle Air Cooling and Heating before you AC unit breaks down.
4. You Experience Low Airflow
Have you recently noticed that your AC vents barely have any airflow? If you know that your vents are fully open and clear of any obstructions, you may have a crushed duct flex, closed or a disconnected or leaky air duct. Whatever the issue may be, you should immediately contact our AC repair professionals at Eagle Air Cooling and Heating to diagnose and correct the problem.
5. Your AC Unit is Short Cycling
Is your air conditioning system starting and running for a very short time, then suddenly stopping and repeating this abrupt start/stop cycle over and over again? This is known as short cycling. It’s hard on your AC system and also bad for your air conditioning bill. We recommend contacting our expert AC repair team at Eagle Air Cooling and Heating to fix this problem fast.
