In the hottest months of the summer your energy bill is likely to be more than it usually is just because of general usage. However, if your energy bill is consistently higher than it has been in the past summers it is probably because your AC is not working as efficiently as it should be. Higher energy bills is the first sign that you need to get your AC looked at and repaired by a professional. There are a number of technical reasons why your AC may not be operating at peak efficiency. The sooner you get someone in to take a look at your unit, the more money you will save on repairs and the sooner you will have your AC back to peak efficiency.
Different Temperatures in Different Parts of the HouseThe AC is supposed to keep every part of your house cooled to your specific settings. There should not be one room that gets too cold and another room that does not get cold enough. This is a telltale sign that something is wrong with your AC unit. This could either be attributed to a faulty thermostat causing the above described cold zones or it could be an issue with a blockage in your cooling ducts.
When your AC is in need of repair and maintenance it will start making noises. So if you hear strange noises coming from your unit or in your cooling ducts do not ignore them. The quicker you get an issue repaired the less of a problem it will be for you down the road. Hissing sounds generally mean that you have cold air escaping through your ducts. This means your AC has to work harder to cool your home and your energy bills go up. Allowing this to go unchecked may cause your evaporator coil to freeze up. If you here a buzzing sound coming from your AC unit this is serious. This sound generally indicates that there has been an electrical malfunction or short somewhere within the unit. This problem is a fire-risk. It is essential that you get a professional out to take a look at this problem as soon as you can before you cause your house some real damage or put the people in your home at risk of injury.
If there are strange, odorous smells coming from your AC unit it is time for repair or even maybe replacement depending on how bad the damage to your unit is. Dirty AC filters can also sometimes be the culprit behind strange smells coming from your AC unit. Be sure to change your air filters regularly to ensure that your unit is operating at peak efficiency and to spare you any possible odor in your home.
