Your AC Unit is Making Terrible Music

Keep an ear out for odd sounds from your air conditioner. It’s generally not normal if your unit is making loud noises. The wide range of possible sounds include:

Aside from these noises clashing with your peace and quiet, they can also indicate that something is out of place, failing or in need of a little TLC. The noises don’t have to be loud to be troublesome, either.

Your Home Feels Sticky

High humidity in your home can be an indication your air conditioner is not working properly. During proper operation, it dehumidifies as it cools. If you have noticed sticky, humid air out of the blue, it could be a problem with your AC system not running enough.

Check the AC setting. For optimal humidity, it should be on “Auto” rather than “On”. Proper dehumidification is not possible if the fan runs constantly. If your settings were correct, you might need to consider having a professional diagnosis or at the least, a system maintenance.

What in the World is That Smell?

An unusual or unpleasant odor in the air could be coming from your ducts. Musty odors can indicate the presence of mold/mildew growth in your system, and burning smells can be a red flag for corroded electrical connections or wiring. Your AC should not contribute to the smell of your home at all, so if something is off, it requires attention.

These signs, along with warm air or inefficient performance, should be addressed before they evolve into something much more serious. And don’t forget to change your air filter!
