Have you ever walked into someone’s home on a hot day and noticed just how beautifully cold it is compared to yours, even though you have AC too? It’s easy to get used to the atmosphere in your home and without paying close attention, you may not realize your air conditioner isn’t operating to its full potential and that you need ac repairs. To get the most out of your appliance, take a look at the signs to keep in mind below, and be on the lookout in case your AC may be in need of repairs:
Warm air: This one may sound a little obvious, but if you’re not checking the temperature of the air your machine is pumping out, you could miss it. If you think something may be off, definitely check the temperature of air blowing into your home.
Airflow: You should also check the airflow being produced through your vents. If the air is cold, but barely pumping into your home, this could definitely be contributing to the temperature rising in your home.
Uneven cooling: If you notice some rooms, or spots, are considerably cooler than others, this could be a sign of an installation error. Or a sign your AC needs to be repaired. Either way, a professional should come and diagnose this problem.
Bad odours: If you notice a bad smell in your home and think it could be coming from your vents, this could be a sign that a water leak occurred and mold and bacteria are beginning to grow. Your air conditioning relies on a refrigerant to cool your home. While it’s normal for this to produce condensation, it should not be enough liquid to cause any sort of odour or molding.
Humidity: If you have your air conditioning running, the last thing you want is to feel sticky and humid inside your home. If your AC isn’t doing a sufficient job of keeping your air crisp and fresh, it’s a good sign your machine isn’t running properly and a professional should come to check it out. Home humidity testers are available at most local hardware shops.
