Summer heat here in eastern North Carolina is no joke, especially with the high humidity we have near the coast. There’s nothing like stepping into your
perfectly cooled house after being out in this humid heat. Make sure your HVAC is working properly so that you’re not left in the heat this summer.
Here are somethings to look out for that can indicate that your air conditioning may not be working quite right.
- Low airflow. If you notice that the airflow of your air conditioning system is lower than normal, you should first check your air
filters. Clogged filters can reduce airflow and cause your unit to strain. It is important to replace your air filters every one to three months.
There are other issues that are more serious that can cause lowered airflow. If you replace your air filters and are still experiencing low airflow,
contact us immediately for inspection of your unit!
- Inefficiency. If you notice that your energy bill is more and your unit is working harder than normal, this is a sure sign that your
air conditioner is not working properly. It is possible that your unit is low on coolant, corrosion from the coastal salt air could be present
or other issues that need attention from a professional.
- Noisy unit. Properly functioning AC units should run quietly. If you’re hearing a lot of noise from your unit, this likely means that
something is wrong. Problems could include issues with the fan belt that affects the efficiency of your system. If you’re experiencing noisy operation
of your air conditioning, seek help and diagnosis from a trained professional.
