3 Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you pay attention and know what to look for, your air conditioner will tell you when something is wrong. If you notice something is off, it’s time to schedule air conditioning repair. Below are some of the most common signs of cooling problems.

When to Call for Air Conditioning Repair

1. Airflow

air conditioning repairIf the air is not as cold as it usually is or the airflow is weaker than it used to be, there’s an issue with the system. If it’s a problem with the unit itself, all the vents will have this problem. If it’s just one or two rooms, then there’s a problem in the ductwork.

2. Leaks & Moisture

Every month or so, do a quick visual inspection of your air conditioning unit. If you notice a pool of liquid anywhere near the unit, this is likely due to a leak. Moisture buildup on the outside of the unit, such as thick condensation, is also a sign that something is wrong.

3. Noises

Depending on the type of unit you have, you may not be able to hear your system when it runs. Louder systems typically make a humming noise, but when your system starts making new noises such as grinding, squealing, or rattling, there’s something wrong. There could be a worn part loose or rubbing against other parts. Leaving it be will only result in costlier repair down the line and a possible breakdown of your system.


If you notice any of these signs or something else that concerns you, it’s best to call an HVAC contractor to investigate. Proper maintenance and prompt air conditioning repair will save you money and extend the life of your system.
