Efficiency Tips to Lower Your Heating and Cooling Bill

Unexpected Increase: A sudden rise in your electricity bill is a silent alarm that your AC system, particularly the compressor, might be working overtime to cool your home, leading to inefficiency and higher energy consumption.

Other Signs Your AC Compressor May Be Failing

  • Warm Air: If your air conditioner is blowing warm air, it might indicate the compressor isn’t pressurizing the refrigerant as needed to cool the air efficiently.
  • Hard Starts: When the unit struggles to start or stutters upon startup, it’s referred to as a hard start, often pointing to a compressor problem.
  • Tripping Circuit Breaker: If your AC causes the circuit breaker to trip frequently, the compressor might be drawing too much power, indicating a serious issue.
  • Reduced Airflow: Diminished airflow from your vents could suggest the compressor isn’t doing its job correctly.
  • Vibrations on Startup: A shuddering or shaking when the AC starts could mean the compressor is on its last legs.
