Signs Your Air Conditioner May Soon Need a Repair

Some symptoms your air conditioning system could need a repair include:

  • Lack of cool air. This is easiest tell-tale sign that your air conditioner needs a repair. If your system struggles to blow cool air, it could be a sign that a component of your air conditioner is starting to fail.
  • Short Cycling.  This is when your air conditioning system starts a cooling cycle, shuts down prematurely, then starts back up a short time later. Typically, your air conditioner will undergo three cooling cycles per hour, each lasting approximately 10 minutes. When you turn on the system, your A/C compressor will run for 10 minutes, stop for 10 minutes, and repeat this cycle two more times during an hour. With a short cycle, the cycle of your compressor turning on and off is shorter than the 10 minute cycle. Your compressor kicking on and off more than it should causes excessive wear and tear. 
  • Rising energy bills. If you set your thermostat to a constant temperature yet you notice your energy bills start to rise, this could be a sign that your air conditioner is working overtime to try to keep your home cool. 
  • Aging system. A properly maintained air conditioner has an expected lifespan of 10-15 years. As your air conditioner starts to near the end of its lifespan, you will start to notice the system will not perform as it was in its original state. 

Do I Need an Air Conditioning Repair or an Air Conditioning Replacement?

  • Your A/C is 5 years old. Consider repairing your system to restore it back to working order.
  • Your A/C is 12 years old with no breakdowns. Consider repairing your system to restore it back to working order.
  • Your A/C is 12 years old with occasional or multiple breakdowns. Consider repairing your system as a temporary “band-aid” solution. Consider replacing your system soon as your air conditioner may soon fail completely.
  • Your A/C is 30 years old. Consider replacing your system. A “band-aid” repair may not be possible as it can be hard to find replacement parts for older cooling systems.

The prompt only allowed me to choose one option. But the whole team was professional, helpful, on time, and provided me with all the information I needed on the quality products that were installed.

I’ve been with Guthrie & Sons since 2008. They installed my new unit and have serviced it twice a year ever since. Something has changed and not for the better. Most notable in communication. After a service visit I received several quotes for further work, mind you no call made during the visit to notify me of these items. New quotes also include a $95 visit fee! If I’m already paying for the initial visit why would you leave without speaking to me if more work was recommended? I called the number on the email that specifically said “if you have questions”. Needless to say the person who answered “Amy” couldn’t provide one single thing of information regarding my visit and I have to speak to the technician. She was politely dismissive and just kept referring me to the technician. This isn’t the level of service I’ve had in the past and not sure I can stay if this is the new standard.

They offered a very competitive price for a much higher SEER unit and they were efficient, clean and informative completing the removal and install of the new unit in one day. I am also very happy with the Bosh unit they recommended and installed.
