Common Signs You Need AC Repair
Is your AC showing signs of trouble? Recognizing these signs early can save you from further inconvenience and costly repairs. You may need AC repairs if you notice:
- Odd sounds: Air conditioners will make some sound while running, but they shouldn’t clang, bang, or grind.
- Unusual odors: If you notice musty, moldy odors or a burning smell coming from your vents, it’s time to call a professional for help.
- Increased energy bills: A sudden spike in your energy bills could mean your AC is working harder than it should.
- Limited cooling: If you can only get cooling for certain rooms, there’s a problem with your blower motor or air ducts.
- Weak airflow: Insufficient airflow could be due to a clogged filter or a malfunctioning compressor.

Air Conditioning FAQs
Once the heat rises in the North Palm Beach area, our experts at Hopkins Air Conditioning start getting plenty of questions about AC systems. Here are some of the most frequently asked:
How often should your AC unit be serviced?
With the high heat and humidity in the North Palm Beach area and the extended cooling season, our experts recommend servicing your AC at least twice a year. Some manufacturers require only one service visit per year for full warranty protection.
Should I repair or replace my AC unit?
Most air conditioners last 12 to 15 years, so if your system is under 10 years old and has no major problems, repairs are probably best when something goes wrong.
If your system is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement once it starts needing frequent repairs, a major part fails, or it becomes massively inefficient compared to newer models.
What happens if I put off my AC service?
Short delays are unlikely to harm the system, but you may start to see problems if you put off AC service for several months or longer. Dust can collect in the coils, air filter, and blower cabinet, reducing system efficiency and comfort. Parts failures may go unnoticed, and the overall service life of the system may be reduced.
Our maintenance agreements make it harder to miss service appointments. They offer other great benefits like 20% discounts on repairs, 10% discounts on system replacements, 20-point AC inspections, and more.
Is there any AC service I can do myself?
Beyond changing the air filter, most maintenance should be left to a professional. Check the air filter monthly and replace it whenever it looks dirty or clogged. Also, keep the area around the outdoor condenser unit free of leaves, toys, furniture, and other debris.
Do heat pumps need the same service as ACs?
AC and heat pump services are essentially the same, though a few more parts are checked on the heat pump, such as the reversing valve. Heat pumps should be serviced at least twice a year because they offer both heating and cooling and tend to operate for longer periods.
