Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair Before the Foley Heat Wave Hits

May 28, 2024 | Blog

One of the most obvious signs that your air conditioner needs repair is if it’s not cooling your home as effectively as it used to. If you notice that your AC is blowing warm air or the airflow is weak, it’s time to call in the experts at Baldwin Heating & Cooling. Our technicians will diagnose the issue and ensure your system is ready to keep you cool all summer long.

Unusual Noises

Air conditioners are designed to operate quietly. If you start hearing strange noises like grinding, squealing, or banging, it’s a clear indication that something is wrong. These noises could be due to loose parts, a failing motor, or other mechanical issues. Don’t ignore these sounds; contact Baldwin for a thorough inspection and repair.

Frequent Cycling 

Your air conditioner should go through relatively consistent cooling cycles, regardless of the weather. If you notice that your AC is turning on and off more frequently than usual, it could be a sign of a malfunctioning thermostat, low refrigerant levels, or other issues. Our $69 Seasonal Tune-Up can help identify and fix these problems before they escalate.

High Humidity Levels

One of the primary functions of an air conditioner is to remove humidity from the air. If your home feels more humid than usual, even when the AC is running, it’s a sign that your system isn’t working properly. Baldwin’s experienced technicians can assess your system and make the necessary repairs to restore comfort to your home.

Water Leaks

While a small amount of condensation around your air conditioner is normal, excessive moisture or water leaks are not. This could indicate a blocked or broken drain tube, which can lead to more serious issues if not addressed promptly. Our team at Baldwin can quickly identify the source of the leak and perform the necessary repairs to prevent further damage.

Foul Odors

If you notice unpleasant smells coming from your air conditioner, it’s a sign that something is wrong. Musty odors could indicate mold or mildew growth inside the unit, while burning smells could be a sign of electrical issues. Either way, it’s important to address these odors immediately. Baldwin’s technicians are equipped to handle these problems and ensure your air quality remains high.

Rising Energy Bills

An unexpected increase in your energy bills can be a sign that your air conditioner is working harder than it should be. This could be due to a variety of issues, such as dirty filters, low refrigerant, or a failing component. Our $69 Seasonal Tune-Up includes a comprehensive check of your system to ensure it’s running efficiently, helping you save on energy costs.

Excellent install of a generator by Jake & Ryan. They went over and above, working late waiting for the utility inspector to come out for final inspection. Couldn’t be happier…these guys are the best.
