Does Your Air Conditioning Unit Need Serviced?

Just like any other appliance, your air conditioning unit will be need serviced from time to time.   

There are several  warning signs you’ll notice when your AC is in need of a tune up.  These include the following:

  • The AC is running constantly, but your house doesn’t seem to cool off
  • The air coming through the vents is hardly more than a breeze
  • When the unit kicks in, the air coming out of the vents is warm

Sometimes your AC unit might need dissembled and cleaned thoroughly by a professional, which you can find here at You’ll know the unit needs cleaned if you notice an unpleasant odor when you run the air conditioning, such as dust or mildew.  

If you notice that your AC is running significantly louder than usual, you should call a professional as soon as possible.   This could be a warning that your unit’s engine is malfunctioning. 

When you run your air conditioning and notice that there is no air at all blowing your vents, a professional should be called in to inspect your fan or furnace. 

If you notice any of the warning signs mentioned, the best thing to do is to shut off the air conditioning right away and call in a local professional.   If your unit isn’t running up to full capacity, you don’t want to continue running it as you could cause more damage or even destroy the entire unit.  In most cases, you’ll discover that your air conditioning simply needs serviced and is not in need of replacement.  However, by ignoring the warning signs and continuing to run your air conditioning you run the risk of causing further damage and facing far more costly repairs down the road; possibly even having to replace the entire unit.
