Air conditioning plays a crucial role in your ability to enjoy life, especially during these upcoming summer months when your home should be a respite from the heat of the day.
Unfortunately, when your A/C is on the fritz, it might become the opposite, leaving your house hot, humid and uncomfortable.
Below are four common signs that your air conditioning needs to be fixed.
1. Circulates Warm Air
The most noticeable sign of an A/C problem is warm air coming out of the vents.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that if your unit is running that it’s working and it will cool down eventually. If your house seems too hot, check the thermostat to make sure it is set correctly, then check the temperature of the air coming out of the vents. If it’s warm, your A/C unit needs repair.
Fixing this type of problem will also help decrease your energy bill.
2. No Air Blowing
There are several reasons the A/C fan might not be blowing air, and not all of them are serious.
An air conditioning technician can pinpoint the problem. It could be something as simple as an obstructed vent, or something more complicated like electrical or blower problems.
Either way, you should talk with your technician. Small problems that aren’t fixed will eventually grow into bigger problems.
3. Leaks or Excess Moisture
If you’ve noticed moisture around your air conditioning unit, you should get it checked out. Leaks can result from a couple of different problems. The most dangerous is a refrigerant leak. This is the chemical that helps cool the air.
Unfortunately, it is toxic and can be dangerous to your family. That’s why it’s crucial for you to talk with your technician if you notice liquids dripping out of your unit.
4. Musty Smells
Lastly, a working AC unit should not produce noticeable smells. Instead, it should clean and clear the air without any odor. If the air coming out of your vents smells musty or strange, there may be a problem within the vents or the wiring.
A visit from a Black Diamond air conditioning expert should be enough to clear up the problems.
