In most parts of Arizona, a reliable air conditioning system is vital nearly year-round. That’s why it’s important to recognize the signs of a failing AC system, so you can prevent unwanted air conditioning breakdowns. With a quality HVAC protection plan in Arizona, you can also avoid unexpected costs for your important AC maintenance and repair visits.

Watch for the Warning Signs of a Failing AC in Your Arizona Home

These can be signs of a compressor failure in your future, which is a major AC repair. Be sure to get your AC inspected right away if you notice:

Ticking or rattling sounds: This can be due to the compressor trying to come on as it should when your thermostat shows that your home’s temperature is rising above comfortable levels. There may be an electrical wiring issue or simply a loose part. You won’t know until you call for AC repairs, so act quickly to avoid additional damage to your air conditioning equipment or an AC breakdown.

Leaks: Moisture buildup from a refrigerant leak can cause drips or puddles near your AC. Refrigerant pressure should be checked immediately. Only licensed HVAC contractors can properly handle and dispose of hazardous refrigerant chemicals—so call in a pro right away. You could instead have a blocked drain line, which your HVAC tech can quickly repair to keep your AC in service.

Poor airflow or warm air coming from the AC: If there’s not much air coming for your cooling vents, or the air isn’t as cold as it should be, the compressor may be to blame. Let your skilled HVAC technician inspect your cooling system to isolate and repair the problem, before it gets worse.

Overheating and/or shutting off suddenly: Your air conditioning system has safety features that will typically shut the system down, in the event of dangerous overheating, to prevent fire and home damage. When this happens, you should have your AC inspected by a pro, so that repairs can be made.

How Professional Arizona HVAC Coverage & Maintenance Keeps Your AC Running Right!

There are a few simple things you can do as a homeowner to maintain your AC–but much of the preventative maintenance upkeep is internal, and must be left to a trained HVAC contractor.

Tips to maintain your air conditioner (and avoid the above-mentioned AC problems):

  • Replace or clean your AC filter monthly.
  • Hose off the outdoor portion of your central AC regularly to keep it free of excess leaves or dirt that can block airflow and damage the cooling system.
  • Make sure you have a home warranty plan in place, with HVAC coverage in Arizona, so your AC maintenance service and repairs won’t bust your budget.
  • Schedule semi-annual air conditioning maintenance services with a licensed HVAC contractor.

As part of your maintenance visit, the HVAC tech will inspect, clean, and lubricate the interior working parts of your AC equipment as needed, check electrical connections, and much more. At this time, the technician can also locate and repair any worn or failing parts, to prevent you from having an uncomfortable, inconvenient, and expensive AC breakdown.

Expert AC maintenance helps your system run at peak performance, maintaining its energy-efficiency to keep energy bills low. It also helps you avoid major repair bills, and extends the life of your central air conditioner, saving you even more in the long term!
