In our previous post, we explained some red flags that signify to any homeowner the need for air conditioning repair. There are plenty of different clues homeowners need to be on the lookout for, so here we continue our list!
- Poor air flow
Little to no air flow within your unit’s vents can signify that the compressor is failing. Or, if the air flow within your home is not equal in every room, then you may have some problems with the ductwork. This could mean that the ducts are polluted with debris, compromising the air flow.
- Humidity problems
Does your home feel especially dry or cold and damp? If so, this means that your air conditioner unit either isn’t operating properly, has broken parts, and/or leaky ductwork. All can lead to an excess of humidity in your home, which can cause plenty of health hazards to your family.
- Your thermostat isn’t working
Contrary to popular belief, if your thermostat isn’t working, this signals that the problem is with the device, not the air conditioning unit itself. One way you can determine if this is the case is if one part of your home is quite cold while the other is hot. It is important to remember that while your thermostat is an extension of your air conditioning unit, it requires its own maintenance and repair outside the unit.
- Leaks around your system
Moisture where it shouldn’t be is the first clue that you are in need of AC repair services. Leaks around your system could be the result two different issues: a refrigerant leak within the system or a drain tube that is blocked and cannot drain. Both need to be checked out right away to ensure mold doesn’t grow around the machine and that no other problems are happening internally within the unit.
If you notice any or all of these red flags, it is important to call your local air conditioning repair service right away to ensure your machine doesn’t break down when you need it the most!
