Signs of Air Conditioner Storm Damage

Storms can cause damage to your air conditioner in all sorts of ways, which is why we highly recommend getting an HVAC inspection after a serious storm. Costly repairs can be prevented if cooling problems are spotted early. In today’s blog post, Reliable Air Conditioning & Heating, the leading heating and cooling expert in our local area, discusses the signs that your air conditioner might have been damaged by a storm.

Burning Electrical Smell

If you notice what smells like a burning electrical odor coming from your air conditioner, you need to call an HVAC company as soon as possible because this problem requires prompt intervention. Shut off your air conditioning system and call our company as soon as you can. This smell can be caused by a variety of electrical problems, such as a damaged electrical motor or a short circuit.

Reduced Cooling Efficiency

As the leading air conditioning repair company in our local area, we recommend calling us for an inspection as soon as you notice reduced cooling efficiency from your air conditioner. This can be caused by damage to the AC motor, clogged condenser coils or refrigerant leaks. Your system will need to be inspected by an experienced technician in order to pinpoint the exact cause of your cooling problem.

Strange Noises

Strong winds can cause loose debris to fly into your outdoor AC unit. This debris can cause it to emit weird noises like rattling, screeching or buzzing. Debris that’s lodged inside the outdoor unit can cause overheating issues and eventual system failure if it isn’t addressed in a timely manner. Call us for an inspection if you hear weird noises coming from your air conditioner.
