Even more important is that your A/C unit is working, and working properly. The problem is that sometimes these units do not always work properly. After all, we hardly need them during the winter and sometimes this can cause the A/C units not to work correctly when we turn them back on. There are many different warning signs that tell you if your A/C unit may need to be repaired. Listed below are some of these signs.
A/C unit does not turn on
This is obviously a big warning sign. If you air conditioning unit refuses to turn on, it definitely needs to be repaired. There are many different reasons why it is not turning on but no matter what the issue is, it needs to be repaired. Having access to cool air inside of your home is very important and could negatively effect your home value should you decide to sell.
A/C unit is blowing warm air
If an air conditioning unit is blowing warm air, it is pretty much defeating the purpose it was created for. An air conditioner is made to blow cold air, not hot. Hot air means that something has become twisted or messed up inside of your A/C unit, and it needs work done. You do not want to heat up your home more than it already is during the summer time.
A/C unit does not turn off
There are many reasons why your air conditioner is not turning off. None of these reasons are good, though. It means that there is a sensor or something that is not recognizing the fact that your air conditioner has reached the temperature you set it at.
If your thermostat is not turning the air on and off at appropriate times, then something may be wrong with the sensor in the thermostat. The sensor is what tells the temperature of the air inside the house. If something is wrong with it, it may cause the A/C unit to run longer or shorter than it needs to.
What is listed above is just a few of the warning signs that may be present if your A/C unit needs to be repaired. There is no way to know all of the warning signs that may be present if your air conditioning unit is not running correctly, or if something is broken it. Or in some cases, your A/C unit may not show any symptoms at all. The key is to just pay attention in case there is a warning sign.
If you notice any of the warning signs above, or if something just does not seem quite right, contact an ac repair tech that is close to you and have the problem looked at right away.
