Whether your air conditioner is in your home or office, if it stops working this can cause the environment to become uncomfortable or the air to become stale. All air conditioning units can unfortunately have some issues after years of use. This is not only frustrating but can be very inconvenient.
Having a working air conditioner not only maintains a comfortable temperature, but they also provide many other benefits which can include, reducing humidity and improving air quality.
To diagnose and repair any air conditioning issues a professional is recommended so it is done safely and effectively. Qualified technicians understand how to check each component of your system without causing any further damage to the unit or risking you and your family’s safety. Here are some common signs that your air conditioner may need to be repaired:
- Increasing energy bills: You will usually notice an increase in energy use during the hotter and colder months. However, if you notice a significant increase in your bills that can’t be explained you may need to consider having your air conditioner checked.
- Inconsistent temperature: A common problem with older systems is that they stop heating or cooling the way that they should. For example, the air coming out isn’t consistent, or proportional with the temperature setting.
- Unusual smells or sounds: If your air conditioner gives off a strange smell it may be because it hasn’t been cleaned or maintained properly. It also may indicate that the filter needs replacing. Loud systems could indicate a problem with the fan or some of the internal parts.
- Leaks or excessive moisture: A small amount of water dripping from the outdoor unit is normal depending on the type of air conditioner you have. However, if there is moisture building up inside the house or a noticeable increase in the water outside, this should be checked by a professional.
Decreased air flow: You may notice that regardless of the temperature setting, little air is coming out of the vents to heat or cool the room effectively. A significant decrease in air flow may also be related to the compressor.
