When the air conditioner in your Fayetteville, North Carolina, home is on the fritz, you might be able to make a few minor repairs yourself. Major malfunctions, however, call for expert technicians. When your air conditioner needs these three AC repairs, don’t hesitate to call an HVAC professional.
Inadequate Cooling Power
Whether it’s late spring or the height of summer, no North Carolina homeowner wants to sense that their air conditioner no longer generates adequate cooling power. When this happens, do some basic troubleshooting by checking that your thermostat is switched to cool and set to a temperature that’s lower than the current indoor temperature.
If that doesn’t work, call the experienced technicians at Bass Air Conditioning. We’ll make sure your thermostat is working properly, and we’ll inspect your air conditioner’s compressor, fan motors, and refrigerant levels until we get to the bottom of the problem.
Uncomfortable Humidity Levels
High humidity causes much more than discomfort. Excessive indoor moisture can also encourage mold, mildew, and dust mites to thrive in your home, leading to potentially serious health problems. When you notice uncomfortably high humidity levels in your home, check the humidity settings on your thermostat.
If your home still seems overly humid, call our HVAC technicians to assess your home’s indoor air quality. Whether your air conditioner needs an upgrade or your home could benefit from a whole-home dehumidifier, we’ll recommend the best course of action to make your home comfortable again.
Leaks or System Malfunctions
All air conditioners produce moisture in the form of condensation. Most are designed to eliminate excess moisture through a simple drainage system, which means you generally won’t see a drop.
If you notice a leak or accumulated moisture near your air conditioner, don’t attempt to troubleshoot. Instead, call our expert technicians right away. We’ll find the source of the problem and complete necessary repairs before the water causes costly and inconvenient damage to your home.
