When your AC needs repair, it’s important to get it in the hands of a trained specialist ASAP. Waiting often only makes things worse, resulting in less efficiency and may even cause damage to the unit.

Here are five signs your air conditioning could need repair:

Inadequate cooling

If your air conditioner isn’t cooling your space effectively, or if the air coming from the vents isn’t as cold as it used to be, this is a sign that your system may need repair.

Unusual noises

Air conditioners should operate quietly. If you notice strange sounds like grinding, squealing or rattling, it’s likely time for a repair.

Frequent cycles

Your air conditioner should go through relatively routine cooling cycles. It shouldn’t constantly turn on and off. If it is, it might mean it’s time to reach out to an HVAC specialist for air conditioning maintenance or repair.

High humidity

While it’s normal for your AC to struggle with humidity on a swelteringly hot Nebraska day, it should be able to keep moisture levels within a comfortable range on mild days.

Nasty odors

Foul smells coming from your air conditioning vents is almost never a good sign.

Should I Repair or Replace My AC?

When deciding whether to repair or replace your air conditioning, there are several factors to consider:

  • Age of the unit: If your air conditioner is 10-15 years old, it may be time to replace it. Older units are often less energy efficient and may require more frequent repairs than a newer system.
  • Frequency and cost of repairs: If your AC requires frequent or costly repairs, it might be more cost-effective in the long run to replace it rather than continue to fork over your hard-earned money for repairs.
  • Performance: Poor performance, such as not cooling your home properly or running continuously, could indicate that your cooling system is having trouble keeping up and it may be time for air conditioning replacement.
  • R-22 freon: If your AC uses the refrigerant R-22  or Freon, which has been phased out by the federal government, replacing it might be a good idea. Newer models use refrigerants that are more environmentally friendly.
  • Overall comfort: Your comfort matters. If you’re not satisfied with the quality of air or the temperature consistency in your home, it might be time to upgrade. In addition to being more efficient, newer models have more advanced technology for even more comfort.

Great job by all. They were careful of the landscape replacing the A/C unit. Inside the heating system was replaced and the fit and finish was great. Explained the operation of everything. They came back two weeks later and checked out the operation of the systems plus installation. The tech was here over an hour checking out everything. New system is quiet. This is a company that care about its customer. We highly recommend A-1.
