Catching problems early is important. Here are some things to look out for.
- High electricity bills. We know that you have probably already keep a close watch on your energy bills, but pay close attention to your electricity bill during the cooling season to monitor any spikes in usage. If you haven’t changed your cooling habits from one month to the next, then you shouldn’t see an increase in cost, all other things being equal.
- Frozen coil. If you find that your indoor evaporator coil has frozen over and continues to accumulate ice, then it’s an indication that your system needs professional repair. When this occurs, it leads to all sorts of problems, from a lack of cooling to an overheated compressor. While defrosting is the logical step, it may not get to the root of the problem, which could be low refrigerant or blocked air flow.
- Hot spots.When you walk throughout your home, is the cooling even and continuous? If not, then you have hot spots, which are often an indication that something is wrong with your AC. There could be an isolated problem to do with your ductwork in a certain part of the home, but it could also be a problem with the actual components of the AC.
