When is Air Conditioning Repair Necessary? A Littleton, MA Air Conditioning Tip

We see many homeowners that let their air conditioning issues continue on either because they don’t know something is wrong or they just don’t want to have to schedule repair when their AC is not completely broken down. That’s why we wanted to put together a quick list of some of the signs that indicate that you need to call for AC repair.

  • Not enough cooling – If your air conditioning system isn’t producing enough cooling for your home you should definitely call for repair. This issue will just keep getting worse until you aren’t getting any cooling at all. Insufficient cooling might be caused by low refrigerant, a broken motor, a bad capacitor or a faulty thermostat.
  • Strange noises – Is your air conditioning system making a squealing, hissing or gurgling noise?  If your fan motor’s belt is bad then it is likely the source of the squealing. Hissing usually indicates that you have a refrigerant leak somewhere. Gurgling likely means you have low refrigerant.
  • AC not turning on – Obviously, if your air conditioner isn’t turning on at all then you have a serious issue with your system. While this could be something simple like bad thermostat wiring it could also be that your fan motors’ capacitors are broken. It could also be the motors themselves that aren’t able to turn on.
  • The air filter – Air conditioning air filters are, by far, the most common cause of AC repair. Its very important that you change your air filters on a regular basis. If they get clogged they can cause many of the issues listed above.
