If your air conditioner is exhibiting any of the following signs, consider reaching out to Muegge:
If your air conditioner is no longer providing the level of cooling you’re accustomed to, you notice weak airflow coming from the vents, or there are hot and cold spots around your home, it could be a sign of a problem. This could be due to issues with the compressor, refrigerant leaks, or restricted airflow.
Air conditioners are relatively quiet, so any unusual noises are cause for concern and should be inspected immediately by a professional technician. Grinding, banging, or squealing noises can indicate mechanical problems caused by loose or broken parts, a worn-out motor, or a faulty fan belt.
Unpleasant odors should also prompt a call to your local HVAC company. Musty smells could indicate the presence of mold caused by a water leak, while a burning smell could signal an electrical issue.
An air conditioner that turns on and off too frequently without reaching the set temperature is short cycling. Some of the common causes of short cycling include a faulty thermostat, a refrigerant leak, a clogged air filter, a frozen evaporator coil, and an oversized unit. This problem should be addressed as soon as possible as short cycling can cause higher energy bills, serious repair issues, and a shorter system lifespan.
Water pooling around the indoor portion of your air conditioner often indicates a clogged or blocked condensate drain line. This issue should be inspected right away, as the water can damage your home and potentially lead to mold growth which is harmful to your health.
While it’s normal for energy bills to rise during the hottest months of the year as your air conditioner works hard to keep your Greenfield area home cool and comfortable, a significant increase without any change in usage could indicate your air conditioner is running inefficiently and needs to be repaired or replaced.
If you experience frequently tripped breakers or notice sparks or other electrical problems when your air conditioner is running, it’s crucial to have it inspected and repaired immediately to avoid safety hazards.
If you want to avoid air conditioner repairs (and who doesn’t!), it’s important to invest in regular maintenance services. At Muegge, we recommend an annual air conditioner tune-up each spring, preferably before you turn the system on for the first time.
During AC maintenance, a technician will adjust, clean, and inspect all necessary components to ensure proper operation. They will also look for any minor issues and recommend the necessary repairs before they balloon into bigger, more serious problems down the road.
Some of the benefits of regular maintenance include improved energy efficiency which will result in lower energy consumption and reduced energy bills; extended system lifespan; enhanced cooling performance; fewer breakdowns; and warranty compliance.

My ancient AC went out about a week ago I called around to get a few quotes and I am still waiting to get them. I requested a 2nd opion on Muegge Plumbing’s website on 05/23/2018 around 7pm. I received a call from Amy at 8am the following day. By 5pm on 5/24/2018 I had a quote from Zach and the job scheduled for the next day. Today I have a new AC unit installed and working. Every one was very efficient and friendly over the phone and worked to find a solution that worked best. Thank you all so much!
