Signs Your HVAC Needs Maintenance

Signs Your HVAC Needs Maintenance

When the temperatures rise, your AC unit should be there to keep you and your family cool. One of the ways to keep your air conditioner functioning properly is to get regular maintenance, and you’ll find that our team at JMS Air Conditioning and Heating of Los Angeles can get the job done. Here are three signs that your HVAC system needs maintenance:

Your Air Conditioner is on the Fritz

A poorly working AC unit can manifest itself in several different ways, such as:
- Warm air flow
- Poor air flow
- Unusual and/or loud noises

If your cooling unit starts blowing warm or hot air, or the air flow seems to be blocked, it can mean anything from a refrigerant leak to a broken wire, and it’s important to bring in a professional.

In addition, if your system starts making unusual sounds or loud noises, it should be assessed by an HVAC technician. Although it may be just a loose particle knocking around, it could mean there’s a major issue.

Your Energy Bills Rise

Although it’s normal to experience an increase in your energy bill when using your air conditioner, if you notice a sudden spike despite similar usage, it’s time to call a professional. The most common causes are:
- Loss of efficiency due to age
- Worn-down parts
- In need of system maintenance

You Notice Leaking or Freezing

A small amount of condensation and occasional dripping are normal, but if you’re seeing puddles of liquid or an ice buildup around your AC, a technician can determine the reason which is generally:
- A hole is in the condenser or elsewhere
- Something in the unit is frozen
- There’s a clog in your system

If you notice any of these signs or your home just isn’t getting cool, JMS Air Conditioning and Heating is ready to help, so call us for all your Los Angeles HVAC system maintenance needs.
