In the heat of the Oklahoma summer, it’s even more important to pay attention to what your AC might be telling you. If you’re wondering whether your cooling system is up the challenge, here are some telltale signs that your air conditioning needs attention from the pros at DeHart Air Conditioning. 

What are the signs my conditioner is on the fritz?

Our friendly customer service can set up an AC maintenance appointment if you have any of these symptoms:

Funny sounds or noises

Air conditioning systems are designed for quiet operation.  If your outside condenser unit or indoor air handler is making unusual sounds—banging, clattering or just plain noise, it’s time to call for AC service. 

Unpleasant odors

If you notice unpleasant smells or musty odors coming from your vents, it’s another signal that your AC isn’t working as it should. The causes could be a filter that needs replacement, a leaky condenser or something mechanical. It’s a good idea to get it checked out!

AC won’t turn on

If your central air doesn’t start up when it’s turned on, there can be a number of causes from the simple to the complex. With one call, our professional AC technicians can pinpoint the problem from a simple wiring issue to more complex breakdowns. 

Blowing warm air

It could be that your thermostat and central air aren’t communicating, or there may be a coolant leak. In either case your cooling system likely needs a maintenance check-up by one of our certified AC technicians.

Repair or Replace My AC?

When it comes to repairing or maintaining your air conditioner it’s often hard to tell when it’s time to invest in an upgrade. Here’s a general guideline:  If your cooling system is less than ten years old, and the repair costs are less than 25% of the cost of AC replacement, getting the repair is the smart move. However, if your cooling bills keep escalating, or you need more than one repair in a year, it may be time to upgrade to a new, energy efficient AC unit.

Time to Upgrade My Central Air

There are several factors to consider when deciding to upgrade your Chickasha or Duncan OK home’s cooling system with a new efficient central air unit from DeHart Air Conditioning. Some factors that may add up to a new AC system include:

  • AC Unit is 10 years or more old

  • Your electricity bills keep rising

  • Your old AC is not repairable 

Your DeHart AC technician can review options for repair or upgrade to suit your family’s budget.

Another Solution for Hard-to-Cool Rooms

If your central AC just doesn’t cool some areas of your home, a great solution is a ductless mini-split heat pump. These super-efficient units can provide heating and cooling for guest bedrooms, additions or any room that needs a boost. They provide versatile, economical cooling and heating for year round comfort. We can help you learn if a ductless mini-split is the right solution for summer comfort!

Is your AC acting funny—strange smells & sounds?
