Your Trane air conditioner is a complex system that has more than 100 parts. When one of those parts starts to malfunction, it can affect the entire unit’s functionality and lead to poor performance. To avoid a costly premature system replacement in your Buford, Georgia, home, it’s important to pay attention to your AC and call a professional if you notice any one of the following three warning signs that it might need a repair.

AC Blowing Warm Air: It Could Mean a Refrigerant Leak

If your air conditioning system is blowing warm air from the supply vents, chances are it’s low on refrigerant because of a leak. For your safety, you should never attempt to fix a refrigerant leak without the proper training and equipment. Instead, a trained service technician should fix the leak, test it and charge the AC so that its refrigerant matches the manufacturer’s specifications. Refrigerant leaks are harmful to the environment, so it’s best to fix this issue right away.

AC Making Odd Noises: It Could Mean a Bad Compressor

Your AC compressor is responsible for cooling air and moving it throughout your home. Since it sits outside, it’s vulnerable to an array of issues. If you hear your air conditioner making banging, buzzing, clanking or humming sounds, turn it off right away and contact a professional before a developing issue turns into a major problem.

AC Cycling Frequently: It Could Mean a Damaged Evaporator Coil

If you’ve skipped routine preventive air conditioning maintenance, your evaporator coil will eventually become dirty and damaged, which will lead to frequent cycling and other problems with your unit. The evaporator coil removes warm air from your Buford home. When it can’t do so effectively, it’ll result in your AC system overheating and shutting off.
