Air conditioners are one of the most important appliances especially for those who live in tropical places. Unfortunately, problems with your AC may often go unnoticed until they become pricey fixes. You need to avoid costly repairs at all cost. It’s better to have your unit checked right away when you notice any of these signs:
It doesn’t provide the comfort you want
When your AC fails to deliver the comfort you need, you need to do something. You need to find out whether it’s due to dirty filters, unit’s power supply, or thermostat problems. It may be the time to call for professional assistance if you have the same problem after trying to fix the unit yourself.
It makes loud noises
It is normal for your air conditioner to make noise while it is running, but loud noises are a bad sign. Some older air conditioners use belt-driven motors, and these can wear out over time. Grinding sound indicates the bearings are broken, especially for units that have a direct-drive blower motor.
It produces pools of water
A fully functioning air conditioner produces a reasonable amount of water that flows down a plastic drain tube. Your air conditioner might be in trouble if you notice a pool of water near the base of your unit. This may be due to dislodged tube or in some cases, a malfunctioning condensation pump.
It consumes too much energy
Poorly functioning air conditioners have to work harder to regulate your home’s temperature. This means higher energy costs because of their low energy efficiency. Your AC could be the main factor if you are noticing a rise in your monthly bills. Replace your unit or have it fixed right away to solve your electric consumption issues.
