Signs your AC Unit is at the End of its Life Cycle
Summers on the East Coast can be very hot and humid. The last thing your family needs is for your air conditioning system to give out on a 90° day with high humidity. Make sure your home is comfortable all season long by checking for these signs of an air conditioners end of life cycle.
Signs of your AC unit is going out
Blows warm air
Cool air should blow evenly throughout your entire home. If you feel warm air blowing even after adjusting the thermostat, it may be a sign that your air conditioning unit is not running at an efficient level.
You should experience cool air blowing at a strong consistent force. If the force of air from your vents is weak, it may be an early sign that your unit is nearing the end of its life. It could also mean that your unit needs a tune-up.
The air blowing from your vents should be odorless. If an unpleasant odor is coming in, it may be due to mold growing inside your ductwork or unit. This must be addressed immediately as it can be dangerous.
Knocking, grinding, and other like sounds are a red flag that something is wrong with the unit itself. Have a professional check your unit right way if you experience this. Prolonged usage with a broken unit can lead to even more costly repairs.
