Signs You Need to Schedule AC Repair Services in Durham

When your air conditioning system is in need of repair, you’ll usually notice signs that things aren’t right before your entire system shuts down. After only 5-10 years, many people in Durham, NC are needing AC repairs, as evidenced by the fact that air conditioner units last longer than they once did (the average lifespan is generally 10-15 years).

Because air conditioning issues can happen at any time, it is important for homeowners to be aware of when these problems begin so that they are not caught off guard by an air conditioner failure during the hottest parts of summer.

Here are six red flags that indicate you should be concerned about air conditioning repair in Durham:

Lukewarm air coming from your vents

Lukewarm air coming from vents is the most typical AC issue, even after a lengthy period of usage and despite the fact that other symptoms described below suggest otherwise. Although clogged AC coils might result in lukewarm air, it generally indicates there's an issue with refrigerant circulation throughout the system (which frequently necessitates AC maintenance services).

Unusual sounds or smells coming from your AC unit

All of these are typical air conditioning noises with minor faults, including grinding, rumbling, whining, banging, hissing. If you hear strange noises or smells coming from your central air conditioning system (which only AC technicians should be able to detect), it's time to request HVAC repair service.

Elevated humidity levels in your home

Your Durham, North Carolina air conditioner expels heat and dampness from the air inside your house. If your AC stops working, you'll notice that the humidity level in your house is higher than normal or that condensation is gathering on surfaces such as walls or other components of the system.

Higher cooling bills

Even though your air conditioner is operating correctly and cooling your home as it should, rising energy bills can be a sign of a problem. According to our Durham AC repair experts, an AC unit that is suddenly costing you more per month to operate needs repairs.

Moisture or leaking around the AC unit

The musty odor that emanates from the vents and AC coils when moisture accumulates in them is due to mold. Mold may corrode, damage, or destroy AC components or accumulate around them as a result of the leaked air, posing a serious health concern.

Certain rooms warmer than others even though the AC is running

The function of air conditioning systems is to move heat. Air conditioning systems use fans and vents to transfer heat from one place to another. If certain rooms in your house appear to be hotter than others despite the fact that you've been running the AC for hours, or if your entire home appears to be warmer than it should be, it's time to call for repairs.

If any of these things are happening with your AC system, get in touch with us as soon as possible to book an appointment, and we will take care of the rest.

Durham, NC Heat Pump Repair

Heat pumps can also cool your Durham home. You'll almost certainly save money on energy and have a lower carbon footprint than with traditional heating systems, such as a gas furnace.

Heat pumps use an air handler, which is a device that distributes air throughout your home. An air handler may resemble a furnace, but it does not create heat through fuel combustion. Some air handler versions, on the other hand, include secondary electric heating or cooling components to assist the heat pump.

Turn to ARS/Rescue Rooter for heat pump service or heat pump repair in Durham. We can fix any type of heat pump. Our HVAC services experts are licensed and certified, which ensures that they are among the best in the HVAC business when it comes to providing Durham heating and cooling services.

Reasons for Air Conditioning Tune-Ups

The best way for Durham homeowners to keep an AC system running smoothly is to prevent any issues before they happen. You can accomplish this with regular maintenance where our air conditioning contractors will go over your entire system to ensure it is in good working order.

We will take the time to clean all of the elements thoroughly and make any minor repairs that are needed before they have a chance to turn into something more serious. When you schedule an AC tune-up in Durham, you’ll help reduce the need for future repairs, lower your monthly bills, and extend the lifespan of your heating and air conditioning system.

Don't let the heat get to you: give us a call at 919-500-5100 for reliable AC repair from the experts.
