Among the many things you can do to keep your air conditioner running at its peak efficiency, one of the best is to have it repaired or replaced as needed. Doing so ensures that your air is not only cool and fresh but also that you won’t have to worry about it breaking down in the middle of the summer.
Air conditioning is not cooling
Air conditioning units work by circulating air through a series of coils and fans. This process cools the air that is flowing through the unit. Air conditioning units can not cool an entire room or space in one cycle, instead they provide cooling at the speed of a few degrees per hour. If you notice that your home’s air conditioning is not cooling properly it could be caused by any number of issues. If you have been having issues with your AC for too long, then it is time to call an AC repair person to make sure there are no larger problems with your system beyond just an issue with the thermostat setting.
Air conditioner is leaking water
If your air conditioner is leaking water and has been for some time: Check the drain pan and clean off any debris that may have built up over time. This will allow the excess water to go down through the drain instead of building up around it and dripping onto your flooring. If that doesn’t fix the problem, you may need to call a professional. Leaking water from an air conditioner can give you many problems, not only will it be necessary to repair but it can also lead to mold and mildew growth.
Strange noise from the unit
It is possible that if you hear some noises coming from your air conditioner. Some of these noises are not necessarily bad, but they should still be checked out by an expert. If you have an air conditioning problem that has been going on for a while, it may be time to get it looked at. A lot of times these noises come from the bearings in the condenser unit and will only get worse over time if they are not fixed immediately. Noise is not always the issue either – sometimes it could be that your compressor is failing and may need to be replaced soon.
Foul smells from the unit
A foul smell from the air conditioner could be caused by a buildup of bacteria. Bacteria forms when sweat, dirt and dust accumulates on the coils in your air conditioner. The bacteria can grow quickly when the air conditioner is turned on, producing a stinky odour. One way to reduce these odours is to clean the coils of the AC unit and replace the filter in air vents. The smell may be a sign that the AC unit needs maintenance; you should contact a service professional for this issue.
High energy bills
If your energy bills have been through the roof recently, it could have something to do with a cooling system that is simply working too hard to get the job done. Even if the home isn’t properly cooled, your AC may be running up your monthly energy bills to a noticeable extent. Upgrade to new equipment, and you can reduce your bills for years to come.
