In the beautiful summer months of Colorado, there are usually few things to complain about. However, the dry climate can become stiflingly hot under certain conditions. Namely, those times when your air conditioner unit stops working properly. Sometimes it’s just a minor issue that can be fixed with a simple repair, and sometimes a complete replacement is required.
It’s not a pleasant realization when you notice warm air blowing of the AC vents during the summer, or really any season for that matter. Instead of the refreshing breeze that’s supposed to come out of your vents, the malfunctioning air conditioner is turning your home into a virtual oven! A mechanical breakdown never happens at a “convenient” time, but it seems that HVAC problems occur under the least optimal circumstances.

You care about your home, so it’s likely that you also care about the appliances that keep it in good condition. But for the average homeowner, an extensive knowledge of air conditioners isn’t a priority, and this can make it difficult to know when something is amiss with one or more units on your property.
At 1st Action Plumbing & Air, we know exactly what to look for in an AC unit — including those features that indicate poor performance. If you suspect your AC may be performing less than ideally, or you’re wondering if it’s time to get a replacement unit, consider these four strong signs that might confirm your suspicions.
This is perhaps the most obvious sign of a poorly performing air conditioner, but you’d be surprised how many people let this issue go unresolved for months, even during the spring and summer. Not only is it uncomfortable to sit in a home that’s too warm, but you risk running up your energy bills to extremely high levels.
An AC that blows out warm air is usually caused by a complication with the compressor or a blockage in one of the air ducts. Regardless of the exact cause, it’s best not to try to tackle these repairs on your own. Many DIYers find that, despite their best intentions, their efforts to correct an HVAC issue only result in damage to the unit or further dampen its efficiency.
1st Action Plumbing & Air recommends letting a qualified professional assess the problem with your air conditioner. We know how to execute the proper solution in the most effective, affordable manner. Because we have this expertise and a quality guarantee of service performance, you won’t have to worry about any future breakdowns or warm-air issues.
It might seem strange to notice humidity in the air given how dry the climate is in Northern Colorado — and that’s because it is strange! Humid air inside the home is a surefire sign of a malfunctioning AC unit. It’s difficult to diagnose the issue that might cause this without having a professional come to do an inspection. This is because humidity problems are generally the product of imbalanced calibrations of the unit. If a recalibration cannot correct it, the installation of an indoor dehumidifier may be necessary.
Whatever the exact issue might be, the experienced team at 1st Action Plumbing, Heating, & Air is prepared and qualified to fix it.
It’s perfectly normal for an AC unit to cycle on and off at regular intervals during the day. However, if your unit is cycling more frequently, less frequently, or inconsistently, this is a sign it needs to be serviced. In many cases, the solution is as simple as a mechanical tune-up, but in some instances, especially with older units, your air conditioner may need to be replaced.
If your AC is cycling irregularly or abnormally, give us a call! From tune-ups to reinstallations, 1st Action has been helping homeowners in the Loveland and Northern Colorado area with all of their HVAC needs.
A clean home might smell like citrus, wood cleaner, and soap. If your home is holding onto unpleasant odors despite your best housekeeping efforts, it could be a problem with your air conditioner. The vents of an HVAC system accumulate moisture over time, and because bacteria grows in water, this can produce the buildup of spores, microbes, and other nasty growths. Sometimes this can be removed with a thorough cleaning of the ventilation system, but less efficient ACs may need a supplementary technology-based solution or a replacement in order to prevent the bad smells from returning.
Your home should smell clean, fresh, and welcoming. If it doesn’t and you suspect it’s due to an outdated AC unit, 1st Action Heating & Air is here to tackle the dirty work for you.
The warm months are just around the corner, and if your AC is exhibiting any of the signs outlined above, it’s likely time for service, repair, or replacement. Set yourself up for a great sunny season by ensuring your air conditioner is operating at its highest capacity and efficiency. You’ll be grateful you did when the next heat wave rolls around!
