Signs Your AC Needs Repair

When it comes to your air conditioning unit, it’s important to stay on top of maintenance and repairs. Regular maintenance can help prevent costly repairs and keep your system running efficiently. Common reparable problems can be identified by certain signs that indicate repair is necessary. J & J Heating & Air offers a variety of services to keep your AC unit running smoothly.

Rattling Noise from Outdoor Unit

If you hear a rattling noise coming from the outdoor unit, this could be an indication that something is loose or broken inside the system. The rattling noise could be caused by debris that has built up within the system, such as leaves, twigs or other small objects. This can create an obstruction in the fan blades and cause them to make a rattling sound when they spin. If left untreated, this issue can lead to further damage and costly repairs.

Cycling On and Off Constantly

Another sign that your AC needs repair is if it’s cycling on and off constantly. This usually means there’s an issue with the thermostat or the compressor isn’t functioning properly. If your AC is cycling on and off more frequently than normal, it could be due to a faulty thermostat or a clogged filter that needs replacing. It’s important to address this issue immediately as it can lead to higher energy bills and increased wear and tear on the system components over time.

Refuses to Turn On

If your AC refuses to turn on at all, then you have an even bigger problem on your hands. This could be due to an electrical issue or a lack of power being supplied to the unit itself. It’s best to call in a professional technician who can diagnose the issue and determine whether repair or replacement is necessary. There may also be an underlying issue with the wiring or circuitry that needs attention before any repairs are made.

How to Know Your AC Needs to be Replaced

At J & J Heating & Air, we understand that replacing an air conditioning unit is a big decision. We want to help you make the best decision for your home and family. Knowing when it’s time to replace your AC unit is important in order to ensure your home stays comfortable all year round.

Temperature Inconsistencies in Home

One of the main signs that it’s time to replace your AC unit is if you notice temperature inconsistencies in different rooms of your home. If some rooms are too hot or too cold, this could be a sign that the air conditioning unit is not working efficiently anymore. Additionally, if you find yourself constantly adjusting the thermostat, this could also be a sign that it’s time for a replacement.

Cost Analysis for Repairs vs Replacement

Another factor to consider when deciding whether or not it’s time to replace your AC unit is cost. If the cost of repairs on an older model would exceed the cost of purchasing a new model, then it is often more economical to purchase a new system altogether. It’s important to consult with an experienced HVAC technician who can assess the condition of your current air conditioning system and provide advice on what makes sense for you financially.

Improved Indoor Air Quality with New Unit

In addition to temperature inconsistencies and cost analysis, another sign that it might be time for a replacement is if you notice a decline in indoor air quality. As AC units age they lose their ability to effectively filter out dust, pollen and other allergens from the air in your home. Investing in a new ac unit can help improve indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms for those in your household.

At J & J Heating & Air, our knowledgeable technicians can help you decide if repair or replacement is right for you and provide guidance on choosing the best system for your needs and budget. We have proudly served San Joaquin County, Sacramento County, Stockton and the surrounding areas for over 18 years with honest and professional technicians – so you can trust us with all your heating, cooling, and plumbing needs!
