Your air conditioning system works hard throughout the summer to maintain the right temperature in your home. This hard work can lead to problems requiring a qualified technician. These are the top five signs you need to contact an HVAC company to repair your AC system.

1. Warm Air Coming From Vents

If you feel warm air coming from your vents when your AC system is running, first check the thermostat settings. If the settings are correct, you need to have a technician diagnose and repair the problem.

2. Increasing Electricity Bills

Your AC system can use up to half of the electricity in your home during the hottest summer months. If you notice your electricity bills are higher than ever, it’s likely there’s something wrong with your air conditioner.

3. Humidity Issues

When an AC system is operating correctly, it removes humidity from your home’s air. If you notice dampness around windows or your home feels too humid, it’s time to have an HVAC technician inspect your AC system to determine the problem. It’s likely the evaporator coil that is making it so your AC system can’t remove humidity from your home.

4. AC System Is Loud

AC systems make noise when operating. You shouldn’t, however, hear loud sounds such as rattling, squealing or grinding. If you do, shut your AC system off and immediately call a technician to repair the issue.

5. Strange Odors

If you have a bad odor in your home when your AC system is on, that’s an indication it’s in need of repair. Odors like mold, smoke or musk should not come out of your vents.
