How do you know if you need a tune-up? Here are some signs your cooling unit may not be running properly:
- Unusual sounds
If you are hearing a banging, clanking, clicking, or rattling sounds, or high-pitched whistling or screaming, it’s a good idea to turn off your central air conditioner unit until it can be inspected thoroughly by a professional.
- Warm air blowing
An AC unit blowing warm air may be the cause of something that is shutting down the cooling mechanism. Things that can cause this are thermostat settings and poor air flow or much larger issues, like electrical problems and refrigerant leaks.
- Weak airflow
The very first thing to check is your air filter to ensure its clean and the right size. Other causes for weak airflow could be in your or power source.
- Unusual (moldy) smells
If you smell a moldy odor coming from you air conditioner, there may be mold or mildew growing in or near the unit.
- Higher electric bill
Older, inefficient AC units that have not been properly maintained are working harder than they need to, to keep you cool.
- Thermostat issues
Most thermostat failures can cause changes in the performance of your cooling system. Since performance is being affected, it is easy to misinterpret the thermostat troubles as larger Air Conditioning unit troubles.
- Moisture or water leaks
From time to time leaks can occur in the air conditioning unit. A leak causes ice to form on the coil and other parts of the air conditioner. Ice buildup on your AC stops it from cooling. Preventative maintenance can spot these potential problems before they become too serious.
Things you can check before calling Holliday Comfort Specialists:
- Check thermostat –
If the thermostat is set to ‘ON’ instead of ‘AUTO’ – this means the fan is just blowing the current air in the house and that air is not actually being cooled. Switch to AUTO to have cool air blow at your set temperatures.
- Check for dirty air filters –
A dirty air filter reduces airflow into your AC unit.
- Check to see if the outside unit is dirty or crowded by debris –
The unit cannot provide proper cooling if it’s dirty or crowded with debris.
