As the cooling season rapidly approaches, make sure your air conditioner is working correctly. In order to get the best cooling performance from your AC system, whether it’s central forced air, ductless mini split, geothermal, or solar, taking heed of the warning signs is an essential part of maintaining your system. If you notice any of the following sounds, call AAction Air in Savannah, GA to schedule an inspection.

  • Increased AC volume. If your outdoor AC unit has become significantly louder over the years, this may be part of its general wear and tear. Excessive noise, though might indicate a problem with the condenser, which can grow to be very loud, even when fenced in. If you know that your unit is new, then it is possibly the compressor, which pressurizes the refrigerant. In either case, call a professional air conditioning technician to get it looked at.
  • Whistling. That irritating high-pitched whistling emitting from your ductwork often indicates air escaping from somewhere within the cooling system. Have your ducts checked by an air conditioning specialist. Problems with your ductwork can reduce the efficiency with which your air conditioner operates.
  • Humming. If there is a persistent humming sound emitting from your unit, combined with starting problems, then this could indicate a bad capacitor. This mechanical issue needs to be taken care of promptly, before it can take a significant toll on your entire cooling system.

If you hear strange and unusual sounds such as these, or any others, you may need to schedule repair for your Savannah, GA air conditioning system. For more information, or to schedule service, call AAction today.
