As summer temperatures and humidity rise in Flat Rock, North Carolina, residents depend on their heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems to maintain a pleasant indoor environment. Most folks don’t think about their HVAC unit humming along in the background unless it stops performing properly. There are a few signs that let homeowners know that their AC unit is struggling to cope with summer weather.

Odd Sounds

If you know what sounds your air conditioning unit makes when it works properly, you will be alerted when odd sounds occur. Squealing, thumping, banging and rattling often indicate problems with belts, fans or loose parts in the system. Clicking noises may indicate a fault in the electrical system. Any unusual noise should be investigated by a professional HVAC contractor.

Frequent Cycling

If the compressor comes on more often than usual, the problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter. Dirty filters cause the air conditioning system to work harder and compromise indoor air quality. Clean or replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If frequent cycling continues, call an AC repair professional.

No Cool Air

There are many reasons why an HVAC unit does not cool. First check the air filter and thermostat settings. If the filter is clean and the thermostat is set properly, call a licensed HVAC repair company to diagnose the problem.
