Signs Your AC Unit Needs Maintenance

Is your AC running smoothly?


Signs Your AC Unit Needs MaintenanceSummer weather is here and that is when you want your air conditioner to work well. However, you may find on a warm day that it is just not cooling your home down like it used to. There could be several reasons why that is happening such as with your turn on and shut off system.

For example, as soon as you turn on your air conditioner, in seconds, you find that it shuts off. This could mean that electricity is being blocked to the unit. Or, there could be too much electricity flowing to the unit.

Another reason why your air conditioning unit might need repair is when you turn on your air conditioner but do not feel any cool air coming from the vents. If this happens, there may be a problem with the fan motor and compressor.

In addition, if you turn on your air conditioner and hear a lot of noise, then there may be a problem in the compressor. This often happens when there is no routine maintenance of the air conditioner. Another problem with an air conditioner is if you notice that the system doesn’t cool even when it is set on a low temperature. This could mean that the thermostat is not working as it should.

Also, if you put on your air conditioner and set it on cool and it’s not cooling your home like it used to, then it could be low on coolant or there could be corrosion going on inside. Another reason why your air conditioner might need repair is if you notice a weak airflow. If you notice that the air coming out of the air conditioner is weak, the problem might be your air filters. If an air filter is clogged, the airflow coming out of it will be weak and when that happens, a strain will be put on your whole air conditioner system.

Air conditioners often have problems that need to be repaired; however, with routine maintenance check-ups, some air conditioner problems can be avoided.
