Look Out

Signs your AC system is failing

Your air conditioning system is getting older

The average life span of a modern AC system is somewhere between 15 and 20 years, but could be much shorter without regular maintenance. At this age, things start to fail seemingly out of nowhere just from normal wear and tear.

Warm air is blowing out of your vents

There can be a variety of causes when your AC system starts blowing warm air in your home, but generally, this is a sign of an aging system.

Refrigerant leaks

Some contractors will recommend you get your system "topped off" every year. This is crazy! And can cost you a lot of money. When we see that your system is low on refrigerant, it will usually indicate that there is a leak present and it needs to be repaired or your system was never properly charged. Leaks can be caused by weed whackers, lawn mowers hitting something in the yard, dog pee, or something just running into your line set.

Blown Fuses/Circuits

If your AC system is constantly blowing fuses or tripping circuits, that is a sure sign it is not running properly. Something could be shorted out or a component could no longer be working correctly.

Strange noises

When bearings wear out, all sorts of noises can be created by your air conditioner.  Pay attention to these sounds.  While a bearing and other internal parts can typically be replaced, it usually signals that the air conditioner is beginning to fail.

Strange smells

Mold and mildew can build up over time on your indoor system from lack of maintenance. If you start to smell something funky, give us a call. It's likely your indoor coil needs to be cleaned by a professional.

If your system is showing these signs, it's probably time for a service call. Keep in mind some of our air conditioners come with a 12 year warranty and many could save you up to 40% in energy costs depending on your current system.

Jackson Comfort went above and beyond to get our tankless water heater installed before a holiday weekend so we would not be without hot water for 4 days. (We had come home from vacation to find our hot water heater toasted)

Bill, Medina

Jackson has been our HVAC service provider since 1984. They have always been courteous, timely, and knowledgeable. I strongly recommend them to any acquaintances to handle their A/C, heating needs.
