07 Sep More Hot Weather Ahead: Is Your Air Conditioning System Going to Make It?
Air Conditioning Service – Nashville & Franklin, TN
The forecast for the upcoming weather in Nashville, TN shows that we’re entering into one of the hottest periods of the summer. Even as we start into September and the last three weeks before autumn officially begins, we’re going to see some scorching days that can climb into the mid-90s. Now is a good time to ask yourself if your beleaguered air conditioner—which has already seen a few solid months of labor keeping your home comfortably cool—is capable of making it until the heat dies down.
Watch for these warning signs that you have a struggling AC and need to call for professional repairs as soon as possible:
- Strange noises from the cabinets: Wear and tear on the mechanical parts are one of the biggest problems that an AC faces during the end of the year. When you hear grinding, groaning, and screeching sounds coming from either the outdoor or indoor cabinet of your air conditioner, it could mean one of the motors is burning out from stress. A clicking sound often indicates a capacitor dying because of the excess heat.
- Hot spots in the house: When an air conditioner starts to lose its cooling power—for whatever reason—one of the earliest ways to tell is rooms that seem warmer than before. The rooms farthest distant along the ventilation system will start to suffer from the heat increase first.
- Rising electrical bills: You should have a good idea of how much you pay for electricity during a month when the air conditioner performs steady work. But when those bills start to rise without a good reason, the problem could be from an air conditioner that is undergoing heavier strain and draining more energy to work.
