Summertime can be difficult because of the overbearing heat.

Reduced Air Flow- When you turned on your AC this year, did you discover that it was not working as well as it had in previous years? Does the airflow feel weak and even less cool than last year? Several issues could be to blame. And all of these are relatively easy to fix. The first could be as simple as a dirty air filter. If replacing the air filter does not solve the problem, it could mean that your fan needs to be replaced. But the pros at Action Air & Plumbing can answer that question for you and provide you with a free no-obligation price quote to fix the issue.
Sudden Increase In Your Utility Bill
Your HVAC system accounts for about half of your home’s energy consumption. And when your power bill suddenly increases for no apparent reason, it is a good bet that your AC is to blame. Without regular care and maintenance, an air conditioner will not function at its peak energy efficiency. A simple cleaning and tune-up could be all that you need to increase your comfort level in your home and drop your energy bills back to a more reasonable amount.
When you fire up your AC for the first time each year, it is expected that you hear a few creaks and noises as the assembly begins to function. But after that first test run of the year, you should not be noticing odd sounds, grinding, rubbing, or squeaking. All of these noises are indications that something is broken or not functioning correctly. And it is also a warning to get the unit looked at quickly by the pros at Action Air & Plumbing before the small concern turns into a significant issue and a major expense to repair.
A Bad Smell
In addition to a few creaks and groans, you might notice a slightly stale or dusty smell when you first turn on your AC each season. But after that initial cycle, there should not be any odor coming into your home with the cool air. If you notice an unpleasant smell coming from your air conditioner, check your vents and ductwork. Most of the time, the odor is coming from microbial growth in the ducts or indicates that a small animal took up residency in them for the winter months. In either case, a call to (806) 787-6501 is the best way to eliminate the nasty smell professionally.
It’s Too Humid
Your air conditioner’s primary job is to cool your home, but a part of that task requires it also to control the humidity in your home. If you feel like your home is just a tick less humid than a sauna, something is not working correctly. If left unrepaired, your home will remain to humid, and that moisture will result in mold and mildew infestation in your home. As soon as you feel your home is too humid, be proactive, and call the pros at Action Air & Plumbing.
Warm Air Is Not Refreshing
Your AC should never be wafting warm air across your home. If you notice that the air coming from the vents is warm, you should immediately check your thermostat. If it is set to cool, but you are getting warm air, there is a significant problem. And one that will require the skills of a Action Air & Plumbing pro. The problem could be a bad compressor, a clogged coolant line, or a frozen condenser. The good news is that all of these can be repaired for only a fraction of the new AC unit cost.
