4 Telltale Signs You Need to Schedule an AC Tune-Up

With scorching summer weather looming, it’s crucial for your air conditioning system to be in top condition in order to take on the heat. The last thing you want is to find yourself waiting for a technician to fix your failing equipment in 80-degree weather.

AC Tune-Up

Here our expert technicians at Stone Heating and Air share four telltale signs that it’s time to schedule a tune-up service for your air conditioner.

Reduced airflow. If the air in your room feels stagnant, chances are this is due to weak airflow coming from your cooling unit. Normally, you can fix this issue by changing the air filters and making sure no debris is blocking airflow. If this step fails to work, you may need to call in a professional to tune up your unit.

Loud sounds. Are you hearing loud, strange noises coming from your air conditioner? If so, it’s likely that it’s malfunctioning. Usually, this particular problem is caused by loose parts, refrigerant leaks or a failing compressor. A quick tune-up will help determine the root cause of the issue so that the loud sounds keeping you up at night can be addressed.

Unpleasant smells. If you’re smelling a musty odor in your home, this is likely due to mold. Poor humidity control causes condensation to occur, which then leads to the buildup of mold and mildew. Don’t wait until a guest brings up the funky smell coming from your cooling system — schedule a cleaning and tune-up service with a technician as soon as possible instead.

Higher cooling costs. Suspiciously-high cooling bills suggest energy efficiency issues within your home. In many cases, an air conditioner in dire need of a tune-up is the likely culprit. This is why it’s essential to perform system maintenance before summer heat gets the best of you.
