Do you know what’s frustrating? And sweaty and uncomfortable?
Having your air conditioning go kaput at the height of summer. And of course, that’s always when it happens.
Unless you stay on top of things. You can keep your air conditioner running smoothly through the hottest heat waves by making sure your system gets serviced while problems are small. Here’s what to watch for!
Your AC will make soft humming sounds and you might hear air blowing around, but that’s about it. If your AC is buzzing, banging, or otherwise making a racket, it’s time for a service visit.
Low Air Flow
This one’s hard to notice unless you’re paying close attention. The air might be coming out cold, but there may not be much of it. Low airflow can indicate a few problems, so it’s best to call an experienced technician to investigate the issue.
The air coming out of a clean, well-maintained air condition system shouldn’t smell bad. If it smells like mold or mildew, that’s a sure sign that your system is in need of a good cleaning. A burning smell means your system needs immediate servicing before the problem gets worse.
Air Conditioner Runs Frequently
Your AC will kick on and off as needed to maintain your home at the temperature set at the thermostat. However, it should come on, cool your home and then stay off for a while. If it keeps going on and off, a situation known as short cycling, something is probably wrong.
