Warning Signs You Need an AC Replacement

In the heat of the Texas sunshine, the last thing any homeowner wants is a failing air conditioner. For the comfort of yourself and your family, it’s a good idea to be able to spot the warning signs that you need an AC replacement. Here are a few of them.

Warm Air

If your air conditioning unit is not putting out crisp, cold airflow, it might be time for a replacement. Check the thermostat to make sure it’s set to cool and the temperature is set to a point lower than the temperature in your home. If the vents still blow warm, you may have a problem with your compressor or the unit’s airflow might be restricted.

Frequent Cycling

If the AC unit in your home is kicking on and off too frequently, this may be a sign that it needs to be replaced. During the hottest days of the year, an air conditioner is going to have to turn on more frequently, but it still shouldn’t have to cycle constantly. If you notice the cycles are too frequent, feel free to contact the experts at Colair, Inc. We’re open seven days a week and we’ll be happy to check for problems in your current setup.

Poor Airflow

Insufficient airflow from cooling vents is a sign that your air conditioner is struggling. It could be something as simple as a clogged air filter or something more serious might be causing it. There are a few easy solutions to poor AC airflow, including a ventilator for energy recovery or installation of a zoning system.

Humidity Indoors

The weather in Mission, Texas, can be uncomfortably humid at times, but the humidity in your home should not rise to those levels if your AC is working properly. A functioning air conditioner should regulate humidity levels in your home. If yours isn’t doing the trick, it may be time for repair or replacement.

An AC unit will usually give off signs it’s not working perfectly before it gives up entirely. If your air conditioner is not working efficiently or blowing cold air, call Colair, Inc., to schedule an appointment. We’ll review your situation and provide you with options to keep you cool. We also offer heating services. Give us a call today when you need an AC replacement.
