February is one of our favorite months of the year here at Polar Bear Air Conditioning—not only because we get a bit of a break from the heat and humidity but also because it’s the month of our favorite holiday.
Each year on February 27, we get to celebrate International Polar Bear Day! This holiday was created by the non-profit organization Polar Bear International to raise awareness about global warming and protect moms and cubs while denning.
Just as we should all take part in helping polar bears keep their homes cool and comfortable in the Arctic, the Polar Bear team is dedicated to keeping your home cool and comfortable all year long. For a limited time, we encourage you to join us in celebrating International Polar Bear Day with $50 off your next repair.
Not sure whether your air conditioner is on the fritz? Here are some red flags you should look for:
5 Signs You Should Schedule Air Conditioning Repair
1. Air Conditioner is Blowing Warm Air
The last thing you want to worry about as a homeowner is a broken air conditioner. So it comes as no surprise that an air conditioner that’s blowing warm air is a disaster of epic proportions—especially when the outdoor weather is exceeding 80°F.
Your AC unit could be blowing warm air for several reasons. The first thing you want to check before calling for air conditioning repairs is your thermostat settings. Is the thermostat set to “cool” and the fan set to “auto”? Have you changed your air filter recently? Does your air conditioning system have power?
If you answered yes to all of these questions, but your AC is still blowing hot air, don’t delay in scheduling a repair service! Take advantage of our International Polar Bear Day deal with $50 off your next repair.
2. Air Conditioner Turns On and Off Repeatedly
Does your air conditioner go through frequent cycles of turning on and off? This is called short-cycling, and it’s extremely detrimental to your system’s energy efficiency—not to mention your wallet!
Short-cycling increases wear and tear, which can lead to
- Frequent AC repairs
- Increased energy consumption
- Diminished home comfort
- Shorter lifespan for your AC unit
- And more
3. Air Conditioner Makes Loud Noises
When you hear loud banging, buzzing, screeching, rattling, clicking, hissing, or anything else out of the ordinary, pick up the phone and schedule an air conditioning repair with the pros at Polar Bear!
Consider any strange noise coming from your cooling system a cry for help. Different sounds are caused by different problems, and the solution could be as simple as tightening some loose screws or as complicated as replacing the whole unit. Only a qualified professional can correctly diagnose and repair an air conditioner that’s making loud noises.
4. Air Conditioner Smells Bad
It’s hard to bask in the comfort of home when your air conditioner smells bad. If you’re smelling mold, gas, rotten eggs, car exhaust, or smoke while your system is running, it’s time for an air conditioning repair service.
These foul odors not only point to problems with your AC unit, but they also deteriorate your indoor air quality. Make sure your family is comfortable and surrounded by fresh air by scheduling a service call.
5. You’re Dealing With High Humidity
We’re no strangers to humidity here in the Cayman Islands. In fact, you can expect sticky weather almost any time you step outdoors. However, at home, your air conditioner is responsible for regulating humidity levels.
Water vapor is condensed into liquid when the hot air in your home comes into contact with the cold evaporator coil in your AC unit. The moisture is then collected in the condensate pan and disposed of through the drain line.
If your air conditioner is not removing humidity, the most common culprit is a dirty evaporator coil. Our expert technicians will thoroughly check and clean your unit’s coils during your air conditioning repair service.
