There are plenty of things you might notice that clearly indicate it’s time for a new air conditioning system, but sometimes problems aren’t that easy to detect. Not only are certain issues not detectable by the naked eye, things may seem like they’re working just fine, when in reality, your system is in the process of breaking down. See below for a few uncommon signs that it might be time for a new air conditioning system.
In some cases, homeowners wouldn’t consider this a problem. Some people like it very cold in their home and some wouldn’t even realize that the system has not shut down in a while. Pay close attention to when your air conditioner cycles on and off, and it doesn’t shut down at all for a few days, there might be a problem.
Believe it or not, animals may be able to get into your ductwork or even your vents, not to mention how it easy it is for them to get into the outdoor components. Keep an eye out for nests or other signs of wildlife.
Sometimes, homeowners don’t even realize that the loud noises their system makes are not normal. You should notice when your system kicks on and off, but you should not be hearing anything that sounds like banging, screeching or rattling.
Although it may not seem like it’s very frequent, if your system has required repairs two or more times in the last 10 years, it could be a sign that it needs to be replaced.
No, your air conditioning system isn’t supposed to be giving off any odors. In fact, you shouldn’t smell anything at all as the air comes through the vents. If you notice strange or foul odors, it’s best to call in a professional right away.
