Do you have a faulty air conditioning unit? Are you unsure if your AC needs to be repaired or not? Having a functioning air conditioning unit can be the difference between an unbearable summer and a very enjoyable one. Take a little time out of your day to inspect your AC unit to see if there is anything immediately out of place. If it’s not giving you the same cool air that you’re used to, then it may be time to call in an AC repair professional to look it over.
A professional has the eyes and expertise to catch both easy and complex issues in a short period of time. In addition, they may be able to issue the repair right on the spot or tell you if additional equipment or replacements may be necessary. However, there are a few signs of a broken or faulty AC system that you can spot on your own so you can let the AC repair professional know as much information from the beginning.
Signs of a Faulty Air Conditioner
Whether you call a professional or not, you can check around your home and air conditioning unit to see if there are a few major signs.
- The AC unit does not turn on. Double check to see if you haven’t blown a breaker and then try again.
- The AC system produces warm or room temperature air instead of desirably cool air
- The system produces an unnecessary amount of water that it does not produce normally
- You find a large build-up of ice around or inside the air conditioning unit
- You smell abnormal odors coming from the air conditioning unit or from the ventilation shafts
- You see or smell smoke
If any one of these conditions are found, then you need to contact an AC repair company immediately. Some of these faulty signs can be detrimental to your AC unit, home, and personal health.
Avoid trying to fix your entire air conditioning unit by yourself. Known as “do it yourself” fixes, trying to handle the AC repairs on your own can actually lead to more repairs that will cost you even more time and money in the long run and could even void your warranty. Contact local professionals that specialize in AC repair and installation to get an idea of what’s wrong with your system. They will also be able to help you fix the issue, possibly even on the same visit, or recommend local companies that specialize in the repair of air conditioning units.
