5 Signs You Need An AC Repair

May 22, 2023 | Blog

Lake Charles experiences humid weather throughout the year – make sure your AC is in tip-top shape when it’s needed the most. That’s why our team is here to make sure your system works properly at all times, so you can be comfortable inside your home year-round!

Are you a homeowner in need of an air conditioning repair or an AC installation? If so, Ace Air Conditioning & Plumbing is the company for you! We are here to help you with any of your air conditioning needs, and we want you to be aware of what AC problems to watch out for this summer season.

Air Conditioning Repair Signs To Look Out For

Knowing what signs to watch for is important in order for you to know when to schedule your air conditioning repair. We want to stress that it’s vital to pay attention to these signs because an avoidable system replacement can cost you a lot down the road.

Strange Odor

HVAC systems aren’t supposed to release any odd odors into your home while it’s running. If you notice a burning smell it isn’t safe for your system to be on.

Ignoring odd smells such as these can lead to your system catching on fire. In this situation, we highly recommend turning off your system completely and calling for professional help in order to tackle this issue correctly.

Loud Noise

If you hear your AC unit making a loud noise while it’s on, this is a sign that there is an issue with your HVAC system’s fan motor.

A common cause of this issue is from debris getting trapped inside the motor. For it to be fixed, you’ll need to turn your air conditioner off and remove any sticks, leaves or other debris you can see inside of it. After you’ve cleaned your unit, it’s important to inspect your fan to see if there’s any damage that should be fixed by our team.

Rising Electric Bills

Monitoring your electric bills regularly is highly recommended. If you notice an increase in your bill, your HVAC unit could be working extra hard to keep your home cool.

A healthy system doesn’t make your bill skyrocket. Inefficiency is a problem that requires professional attention.

Water Leaks Around Unit

Frequently inspecting your system is a good way to see if anything looks broken or not normal. For instance, if you notice any water sitting around the base of your unit, it’s a sign that there’s a leak. Water leaks are a serious issue that you shouldn’t ignore.

Frozen AC

Did you know that your air conditioner can freeze up and stop working properly – even at the peak of summer? It’s important to frequently inspect your cooling system in order to know what condition it’s in. If you walk up to your system and notice ice built up around it, we highly suggest turning off your AC unit and getting it looked at immediately.

The Importance Of Tune-Ups

Our team offers regular tune-up services that help prevent your system from needing frequent repairs. This service focuses on inspecting your unit inside and out in order to ensure it’s running efficiently.

It’s advised that you schedule a tune-up before any big weather change occurs. Getting it done twice a year will help reduce the chance of experiencing any of the signs above. It’ll also save you money in the long run and keep your system healthy all year!

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friendly and Honest

Technician came out to my house within an hour of calling and he was very friendly and honest. I was expecting to have to replace the whole unit or have a salesman try to have me “upgrade” to a newer unit but Mr Jeff was quick to diagnose and correct the problem at a reasonable cost.

Megan M.

Excellent Service!

We called Ace on a Sunday. Several hours later a serviceman arrived, inspected the air conditioner, and got it working. The serviceman was quite knowledgeable. Excellent service!
