Lack of Cool Air & Limited Airflow
This is probably the most obvious sign that your AC is experiencing issues. If you turn on the unit and the air doesn’t come out cold within a few minutes, there’s a good chance that it’s not performing properly. One of the indicators could be a dirty or leaking coil, another collapsed duct which restrict airflow and neither of these will resolve on their own. No matter what the cause, a lack of air flow is a surefire sign that you have a problem which must be dealt with.
Drain line issues
All AC units will produce condensation , but those which are functioning properly should be able to handle it without issue. When water is present or leakage is occurring around the AC, It is more than likely a drain issue. This could cause the unit to shut off or even overflow, if it overflows it could pose a serious health risk to you and your family. Even if it’s just water that’s building up, allowing the problem to persist can creating an undesirable breeding ground for mold.
Have you noticed that your AC is noisier than it used to be? The presence of strange sounds such as grinding, squeaking or chattering is never normal and should not be taken as a typical sign of aging or wearing parts. Most AC units are supposed to operate at a noise level that is barely detectable, so if your cooling system is drawing attention to itself, you know it’s time to have it evaluated.
In the same way that noticeable sounds typically indicate a problem with heating and cooling systems, so too do strange smells. Your AC should be putting out clean, neutral-smelling air, but this isn’t always the case when problems exist. A smokey or burning smell can indicate serious problems and requires immediate attention.
High Energy Bills

Upgrading to a new system will reduce your bills for years to come.
