Central air conditioning can be a lifesaver during our South Jersey summers, but only when it’s working correctly! There are many issues that can affect the performance of your AC, leading to inefficient operation, higher electricity bills, and an uncomfortable home for your family.
Some AC problems are simple enough that you can fix them yourself. But when you need reliable AC repair and other HVAC services you can trust, call Bovio Rubino Service. Here are some of the issues that we see often in homes throughout Southern New Jersey, including Sicklerville, Cherry Hill, and Vineland.
AC Problem #1: Clogged Air Filters
Signs Your Air Filters Are Clogged
- Reduced airflow from vents
- More dust accumulation in your home
- Increased energy bills
Cleaning or replacing your air filters regularly is essential to maintaining a high-functioning HVAC system. This is a relatively simple task that any homeowner can do, but it’s also a part of Bovio Rubino Service’s AC maintenance services.
AC Problem #2: Thermostat Issues
Signs There’s a Problem with Your Thermostat
- Incorrect temperature readings
- Unresponsive controls or display
- Inconsistent cooling throughout your home
When it comes to problems with your thermostat, it’s always best to check the obvious first: ensuring your thermostat has a reliable power source or that the batteries haven’t died. If the problem persists, call a professional for thermostat services.
AC Problem #3: Refrigerant Leaks
Signs You Have a Refrigerant Leak
- Your AC cycles (turns on and off) for longer than usual
- You can hear hissing or bubbling sounds near the AC unit
- The air in your home is more humid than normal
Refrigerant leaks pose not only a risk to your HVAC system but to your health as well. If you suspect your AC is leaking refrigerant, call Bovio Rubino Service right away.
AC Problem #4: Faulty Fan Motor
Signs There’s an Issue with Your AC Fan Motor
- Poor airflow from your vents
- Grinding, screeching, or rattling sounds from your outside AC unit
- Your AC fails to start
Fan motor problems can be the result of electrical problems, dust accumulation, and more. A qualified, NATE-certified AC technician can get to the bottom of the issue quickly.
AC Problem #5: Compressor Failure
Signs There’s an Issue with Your AC Compressor
- Warm air coming out of your vents
- Leaking refrigerant
- High energy bills
There are many indications that your AC compressor is starting to fail. If you catch the issue early enough, you can avoid a complete breakdown that leaves you without cool air in the middle of a South Jersey summer heatwave. The compressor is just one of the many parts of Bovio Rubino Service’s AC service checklist.
