Air conditioners in Queensland get a pounding. From the extreme heat, high humidity, to the cold winter nights, our units get worked.
Just like everything else, they need servicing and sometimes replacing.
Here are the top 6 signs you need your air-con unit serviced or replaced.
It’s Short Cycling
This may seem obvious but many people ignore this sign. If your air conditioner is turning off and on randomly, it’s time to give us a call. It may be a simple fix now but left unattended, it could mean a complete replacement.
Your Air Conditioner Smells
Bad smells could mean mould inside your unit. This mould breeds and gets circulated throughout your home by your air conditioner. Left untreated, this could have serious health effects on you and your family.
Your Air Conditioner Is Making Strange Noises
Fans can break. If you hear strange noises, it could be a damaged fan. If it sounds louder with more of a rattle, it could be something bigger. Our team can diagnose this before it gets too serious.
Your Power Bill Has Gone Up Unexpectedly
If your power bill has gone up, this is a good sign something is wrong with your unit. Common issues are blocked air vents, old filters, and issues with the condensing coil.
Give us a call on 1300 4 PULSE and our team will test your home to isolate the problem.
We’ve seen air conditioners pouring water out of the front vents onto televisions and excess water leaking on the outside. If you see excess water or an increase in condensation, give us a call straight away.
It’s Not Heating Or Cooling Anymore
When the air conditioner doesn’t cool anymore, it’s most often because the refrigerant levels are low.
If it doesn’t heat, you may have a damaged compressor. Either way, our team can get on to this before it becomes a big issue.
