Mesa Air Conditioning Service War Against Sizzling Mesa Heat Index
Although current Mesa temperatures lean toward mild and comfortable, in Arizona even the winter is open season for Air Conditioning repair services. When coming down from triple-digit summer temperatures, we tend to visualize a well-deserved break for the home cooling system.
Don’t be fooled.
In the just released Bert Sperling Heat Index, the region of Phoenix-Mesa, AZ comes in number one among the top ten sizzling cities in the US (1). To make it brief: Mesa, Phoenix and other nearby areas run an average 100-plus high temperature and a tough 77 degree average nighttime low. Relative humidity at high temperature stands around 20 percent. When compiled into the Sperling research, Phoenix-Mesa, AZ hits a 97.7 top-in-the-nation heat index rating.
In this article Arizona-based American Cooling and Heating provides residents with five signs that indicate a heat pump in need of repair.
Five Signs Your Mesa Home Cooling System Is Hurting
1) AC Failure – Foul Odors
Aside from a dusty scent that often accompanies the first yearly engagement of your heating components, your AC system should function odor free. Pay attention to abnormal scents. Musty smells indicate a possibility of bacteria in the ductwork, or perhaps an open tear that enables the system to suck air from the crawlspace. Keep watch also for hints of frayed, overheated or burned wiring. Foul odors pose safety concerns for you and your family. Do not let this go unchecked.
2) AC Failure – Abnormal Sounds
Trane heat pumps rate among the best in the market, yet even the highest ranked sound-suppressant units produce a certain level of expected noise. However, clanging, grinding, squeaking, and squealing are typically signs of major complications. To ignore such abnormal sounds is to invite a future filled with more costly solutions.
3) AC Failure – Strong Air Flow, Poor Cooling
Various system problems can result in strong airflow yet poor cooling. Low coolant stands as the most typical problem, but identifying and repairing the leak that caused the issue must precede the recharge. On the more costly side, your system may be suffering from a failed compressor. On the simple side, maybe someone accidentally set the thermostat to “fan only” mode.
4) AC Failure – Leakage Near The System
The indoor air handler on your Mesa home heat pump requires a system for drainage of moisture. Without controlled drainage, water will begin to accumulate near the system. Causes for drainage failure include a clogged drain line and/or a frozen control regulator. Also keep watch for signs of leaking refrigerant. In either event, immediate investigation is necessary. From prompt Mesa heat pump servicing, call our air conditioning specialist today.
5) AC Failure – Weak Air Flow
A faulty blower can cause weak airflow throughout your entire home. Problems such as debris inside a vent, a closed register, or damaged ductwork will be regional in nature. Before calling for Mesa AC service, check the obvious. And don’t forget to check and clean the air filter.
