Katy heat and humidity isn’t for the faint of heart, but even the toughest Texan can appreciate the benefits of a functional cooling system.

Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair
If your air conditioner has been exhibiting unusual behavior or underperforming, you may be wondering whether or not to call for service—but even the most subtle hints from your cooling system are worthy of investigation, and a small fix now may save you from a major repair or replacement down the road. Signs to watch out for include:
- A lack of cold air. One of the most obvious signs of an impending repair is a blast of warm air coming from your vents. Before you call, check the thermostat to ensure it is set to “cool” rather than “heat” and that the temperature is set to several degrees below the ambient temperature in the room.

- Weak airflow. Lack of comfort is often caused by reduced airflow and a loss of system pressure as the result of a dirty air filter, frozen evaporator coil, failing compressor, leaky ductwork, or issues with your blower.
- Water leakage. While a bit of water leakage isn’t cause for alarm, excess moisture or pooling around the unit requires attention and if left untreated can lead to property damage or mold growth.
- Frequent on and off cycling. If your air conditioner short cycles, it may be improperly sized for your home and may need replacing.
- Strange noises. Grinding, squealing, grating, or other mechanical noises are cause for concern and require immediate attention to prevent further damage.
- Unpleasant odors. A musty smell is a sign there may be mold growth on system components or in your ductwork, while a pungent odor is often produced when wire insulation has burned out.
- Frozen coils. This phenomenon can be the result of a low refrigerant charge or restricted airflow, both of which require the services of a professional.
- Air conditioner won’t turn on. Check the power at the main breaker and the emergency shut off near the outside unit. If the breaker was tripped reset it, but if it trips again leave the unit off and call for repair. (If it turns out you need an electrician rather than an HVAC technician, we can help with that, too!)
- Increased energy costs. If your utility bills have been steadily rising it may be time to upgrade your air conditioner to a newer more efficient model.
If any of these issues sounds familiar, or your air conditioner simply isn’t delivering on a hot summer day, call us at 281-394-1923 now!
