Why Your Air Conditioner Won’t Play Nice

Air-ConditioningWhat seems to be the problem now?


Why won’t this piece of garbage turn on?

Sound familiar? If these phrases are common in your household, then you’ve got a bad AC on your hands. Or do you? It can be tough to tell without a professional diagnosis, that much is certain. Fortunately for you, we can help!

For an HVAC contractor in Santee, CA committed to excellence, get in touch with Excel Air Corporation. Read on to learn more about why your AC won’t play nice.

Bad Sounds

Unless you demand absolute quiet around the house (and therefore don’t have children), you probably expect the various systems in your home to make a bit of noise. Washers, dryers, water heaters, HVAC units: they all sound like something.

But if you’ve noticed that your HVAC system has started to make a new, peculiar sound, then call in a pro to get it addressed. For example, if you hear clanging, banging, grinding, or buzzing, there is a slew of different reason why this might be the case. There are common problems, but all situations are unique. Professional repair requires an inspection by a trained technician.

Bad Performance

Another way that your AC is apparently trying to ruin your home life is that it simply doesn’t get the job done. If it feels like you’re paying good money for something that doesn’t cool the way it should, your intuitions are probably correct.

Now if your system is over 12 years old, then it may be time to put that old system to rest and upgrade. If it’s less than 10 years, there could be any number of issues that might impact its performance, including something so simple as a really dirty air filter, or something a bit more substantial such as a refrigerant leak.

Bad Efficiency

More and more customers have become savvier about the way they spend their household energy. Whether you’re motivated by environmental concern or by savings (or both!), you don’t want your air conditioner to be charging you a premium price without added value.

If your cooling costs have risen over the years or you notice an unusual spike in how much energy it requires to run the unit, chances are that you should get it inspected. Not only are you probably spending way too much on cooling costs, ignoring the problem will only allow the problem to fester. Pretty soon, you might have to replace that unit instead of simply repairing it!

Prevention Is Always Good

We really can’t say enough good things about routine maintenance. Not only will this allow us to stay ahead of problems with your AC, it also entitles you to benefits such as priority customer status.

Routine maintenance ensures that your system is effective and energy-efficient year-round. If your AC or another part of your HVAC system won’t play nice, then let Excel Air Corporation know. At Excel Air Corporation, your comfort is all that matters!
