When the sun becomes brighter and you start feeling the heat, then there is definitely a need for air conditioner at home. However, often your AC may not work as efficiently as it is desired to work.
How can you do your AC check? Look for the following warning signs to decide whether you need to call any HVAC professional to get your AC repaired immediately.
- Warm air coming from duct
In case, you find the air-throw coming out of vents are quite warm then check whether the thermostat setting is proper or not.
If the thermostat setting is much lower than the room temperature but yet the air is warm then something must be wrong with the air compressor unit.
- Insufficient air flow
If you find that the air flow is not sufficient enough then surely there is certain blockage that is preventing the right flow of air. Either the filter has become too clogged or any motor inside the AC is malfunctioning.
Call your AC mechanic to do thorough check and set it right.
- Frequent cycling
Whatever be the weather condition, your air conditioner must go through routine cooling cycles, though it may go to cooling cycle more often during very hot seasons.
However, if you find that it is going for frequent cycling unnecessarily then it needs to be checked by a professional.
- High amount of humidity
Though the condition of atmosphere will be humid during rainy seasons and thereafter when it is hot. However, inside the room where air conditioner is running you should not feel so.
If your AC is not able to control humidity then perhaps it needs recalibration.
- Water leaking observed
Air conditioners generally rely on refrigerant for cooling home and often may produce condensation, but all these liquids should not leak into the room unless there is certain fault in the cooling system.
- Bad smell
In case you get any unpleasant smell inside the room particularly coming out of your air conditioner then try to resolve it soon before it can get worse.
Maybe your AC needs certain high-tech solution too.
- Unfamiliar noises
Certain amount of noise is expected particularly if the AC is window type, however if you find very unusual noise coming from your air conditioner then you cannot ignore it.
There is a possibility that certain parts must have gone loose inside your air conditioner unit.
