Warning Signs You May Need to Repair Your AC Unit
In many instances, you will know immediately if something is wrong with your air conditioning unit. The sign could be as obvious as waking up in a pool of your own sweat due to the high indoor temperatures. But other issues are gradual. Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating recommends calling our team if you notice any of the following warning signs you may need AC repairs:
If air is not freely flowing out of your vents, there may be a blockage within your home’s ductwork. Other culprits could be a clogged air filter, broken motor, or something more serious.
Your air conditioning unit should have a relatively routine schedule of cycles, regardless of the weather. If you notice it cycling more frequently than usual, something is probably wrong.
Alert the technicians at Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating if you notice pooled water or an active leak around your AC unit. This is an issue that should be addressed immediately to prevent significant damage to your home.
A telltale sign of AC issues is a bad aroma emanating from the unit. The problem will get worse without service, so call us right away.
You likely notice noises coming from your air conditioner periodically, but if they become persistent or louder than usual, a part may be broken or malfunctioning.

Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner
There is a fine line between needing to repair an air conditioner unit and needing to replace it. We can help you determine the best solution for your residential or commercial property. Our trustworthy team will never recommend a good or service that you do not need, but we will be honest with you when it is time to install a new unit. We suggest replacing your air conditioner if:
- It is more than 15 years old – The lifespan of an AC unit is normally 10-15 years. After that period, it is time for a new one. Additionally, older units are not as efficient as their newer counterparts.
- You need frequent repairs – If you are relying on Hydro-Flo Plumbing & heating for repairs multiple times per year, it is best to opt for a new air conditioner.
- The cost of a new unit exceeds half the price of repairs – If your repairs cost at least $5,000 – or more than half of the price of a new air conditioner – your best bet is buying a new unit.
