While most summers in Vegas are brutal, this year seems especially so. With record breaking heatwaves, we don’t have the ability to function without an AC system to keep things manageable.

Bad Smell Coming from My Air Conditioner
If you smell something funky when you turn on your AC, it is hard to ignore it. There are certain smells that you shouldn’t ever turn a blind eye to as they can be dangerous. For instance, if you smell something burning when your unit turns on, it can mean that there are electrical issues that could turn into an electrical fire. If you smell mold and mildew when your air is on, there could be drainage issues that are causing mildew to and mold to grow which can cause health problems.
Frozen AC Coils
You shouldn’t see ice on your system when your AC in on either. This is always a sign that something is wrong. If you leave it without turning the system completely off and call on a pro to get to the bottom of the issue, you can end up with larger repairs on your hands. Ice can do damage to your system when it is left and not fixed.
Noisy Air Conditioner
You are probably used to the noises that your AC makes when it is on. When you notice that your AC is all of a sudden making noises that you aren’t used to hearing, you shouldn’t ignore it. Loud and unusual sounds can mean that there are big problems with your unit. Here are some of the noises that you shouldn’t ignore.
Do Your AC Units Make Your Electric Bill Go Up?
It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on your energy bills. You can tell a lot from these monthly bills, especially when it comes to your AC system. Most homeowners expect to spend more on energy during the summer because of the need to stay cool. However, you shouldn’t be spending more than is absolutely necessary. You can judge what you should be spending when you compare the current utility bill with your bill from last year at the same time. If you see that there is a big change, it can be a good indicator that there is a problem.
