When your air conditioning system is breaking down, some warning signs may alert you. Below are some of the warning signs that should tell you that you need to hire an air conditioning expert and soon as possible.
* Your air conditioning system simply wont turn on.
The main cause of your air conditioning system not turning on may be that your thermostat may not be set in the correct manner. The other reason may be that power is not reaching your air conditioning system. You could try fixing this problem by making sure that your thermostat is set to cool or AC. You could also make sure that your battery is fresh and that your temperature setting is set correctly. It could also be a fuse that has tripped that is causing all the problems that you are experiencing. If you have done all that and your air conditioning system is still not turning on, then it is time for you to call in an expert.
* Your utility bills are going up at an alarming rate
When your utility bills start going up, this may be a sign that your air conditioning system has a problem. It may be that your condenser coil is chocked or that your filter is dirty. The coil which is located at the outdoor unit has a number of countless cooling fins like the ones that are in a car radiator. All these fins have a high probability of accumulating a lot of dirt and debris. When this happens, the best thing to do would be to call in a qualified and skilled technician to have a look at your air conditioning system. You may end up paying around $75 to $150 depending on how serious the problem is.
* Hearing of weird noises when your air conditioning system is in operation or when it is starting up
Even though there may be a serious problem, the cause of this noise may be a screw that is loose. However, the bad news may be that the fan blade may be bent or the indoor blower motor may be burnt. If there is a problem with a screw, simply tightening it and lubricating it would also fix the problem. However, it may be a good idea to call in an expert so that they are able to know where the problem is. You may also need to get a new fan blade and a new fan motor. This may end up costing you around $75 to $150 for an inspection alone. When it comes to purchasing a new blower motor, you may end up spending around $150 to $750.
