Signs Air Conditioning Repair Is Needed

It is important to recognize the signs that an air conditioning system needs to be repaired. The sooner an experienced San Marcos AC repair tech can be on the scene, the better the odds of a cost-efficient solution. 

Here are some of the common warning signs: 

  • Inadequate cooling: If the air conditioner is struggling to cool down even one room, it may indicate a more serious problem. A good DIY step is to check the vents and see if a simple cleaning might do the trick. If that doesn’t work, it’s time to call in a professional. 
  • Strange noises or smells: Unusual noises coming from ducts or components may signify an internal issue with the AC unit.
  • High energy bills: If the bills are higher than normal without any logical explanation, this could be due to an increase in electricity usage caused by a malfunctioning air conditioner. It may be wise to call a professional before the problem becomes worse. 
  • Limited airflow: Poor airflow can lead to many problems with cooling efficiency, and the overworking of other parts of the system.

The Most Common AC Issues & How to Troubleshoot Them

At Reliable Air, we understand that AC issues can arise unexpectedly, especially in the hot and humid climate of San Marcos, TX. Here are some common AC problems that homeowners face and some troubleshooting steps you can take.

However, please note that for complex or potentially dangerous issues, it is always best to contact a professional HVAC company like Reliable Air for assistance.

Insufficient Cooling:

  • Check the thermostat settings to ensure it's set to "cool" and the desired temperature is lower than the current room temperature.
  • Clean or replace the air filters if they are dirty or clogged, as this can restrict airflow.
  • Ensure that the outdoor unit is free from debris and the indoor vents are open and unobstructed.
  • If the problem persists, it's time to call a professional HVAC technician to diagnose and fix the underlying issue, which could be a refrigerant leak, faulty compressor, or other technical problems.

Poor Airflow:

  • Examine the air filters and clean or replace them if necessary.
  • Check the vents and registers throughout your home to make sure they are open and not blocked by furniture or other objects.
  • Check ductwork for signs of leaks or damage.
  • If you've tried these steps and the airflow is still weak, it may indicate a more significant problem with your AC system, and it's best to contact our team for further evaluation and repairs.

Noisy Operation:

  • Pay attention to any unusual sounds coming from your AC system, such as banging, clanking, or squealing noises.
  • Check if there are loose parts or debris trapped in the system, which can cause rattling or grinding sounds.
  • Ensure that the outdoor unit is level and the fan blades are clean and intact.
  • While you may be able to identify and address minor noises, it's advisable to contact our professional technicians if the problem persists or if you suspect there may be internal mechanical issues that require expert attention.

Frequent Cycling:

  • Verify that the thermostat is functioning correctly and set to the desired temperature.
  • Replace and clean the air filters as needed.
  • Ensure that the condenser unit is not obstructed by vegetation or debris.
  • If your AC system continues to cycle on and off frequently or shows irregular patterns, it could indicate a faulty thermostat, refrigerant leak, or an issue with the electrical components. In such cases, it's recommended to call Reliable Air to diagnose and resolve the problem.

Remember, while troubleshooting steps can sometimes resolve minor AC issues, it's crucial to know your limitations. If you encounter complex issues, electrical problems, refrigerant leaks, or if troubleshooting steps do not resolve the problem, it's best to contact our team at Reliable Air.  

Our experienced technicians have the knowledge, skills, and tools to diagnose and repair AC problems safely and efficiently, ensuring your comfort during those scorching summer days.

Why Choose Us For Air Conditioning Repair Services in San Marcos?

We know a lot of people, including many of our customers, are very handy around the house. 

That said, and acknowledging our own professional bias, there are several good reasons why getting professional help is the better solution: 

  • Professionals have experienced hands-on training that has prepared us for most any situation. The likelihood of having the problem fixed the same day is increased when an experienced tech is called to the scene. 
  • DIY efforts can lead to mistakes, which can cost substantial amounts of money to fix—which in turn, ironically, undercuts the very rationale of DIY to begin with. 
  • All people are different, but we feel safe in saying that everyone has better things to do with their time than poke around an air conditioning system. There’s family, friends, and hobbies. Businesses have other things they, and their employees can be doing. Give us the responsibility of keeping you cool and comfortable while you do them.
