A Redlands, California summer typically requires the use of an air conditioning unit to keep homes and businesses at a temperature where you can live and work in comfort. There’s no happiness in the surprise that comes when you set a temperature and expect your air conditioner to start and it doesn’t kick on. If you’re concerned about the possibility of an air conditioning repair in Redlands, CA., there are a few things that you can watch for – signs that your air conditioning unit may be on its last legs.  If any of these issues come up, you’d be wise to seek the assistance of a professional trained in AC repair.

  1. No Power. If the air conditioner won’t turn on and you’ve checked to see that breakers haven’t been tripped, there’s definitely an issue that you need to have checked. It could be that the electrical system within the unit has failed.
  2. The Outdoor Condenser has Hard Starts. If the condenser unit outside your home shakes and shudders as it kicks on, that is what professionals call a hard start and it’s a good indicator that you need to have it serviced and might want to consider replacement.
  3. Unreliable Cooling From the Unit. If your air conditioner works some days, but not others, that’s a big sign that your air conditioner is malfunctioning.
  4. Frequently Tripped Breakers.  When the HVAC unit draws too much power as it starts up, it will trip a breaker and cut the power to the unit. This is a sign that the air compressor is failing and needs to be replaced.
  5. Your Central Air Conditioner Makes Unusual Noises.  There can be many reasons for unusual noises from your central air conditioning unit. Often, these noises can be resolved with a maintenance call. You might find that debris is caught in the fan blades or there may be a problem with the motor.
