Have you ever run into this situation? Your AC is running, but it’s not cooling. If that’s the case, you’re likely in need of an AC repair. Here are a few reasons why your AC is working overtime without actually cooling down your house.
Improper AC Installation
If you have a new unit, your problem may be due to improper installation. It could also be that the unit is the wrong size for your house. At that point, all you can do is call the company who installed your unit to check it out.
Lack of Maintenance
Just like your car, your AC needs regular maintenance so any small problems don’t escalate. Now that summer is on the way, this is a great time to schedule an AC tune-up. A professional will come to your home and make sure your system is ready for the warmer months. You, however, can play a role in maintenance. You should regularly check your air filter to make sure it’s clean – and change it every couple of months.
Issues With The Thermostat
Issues with the thermostat are a common occurrence and can be difficult to detect. Sometimes it is as simple as the thermostat not being set to the appropriate temperature. However, if you go check it out and the display is blank, that’s a sign of a malfunction. There are quite a few things that could have gone wrong that a professional will need to examine.
Low Refrigerant Levels
Refrigerant is important to produce cool air. Having low refrigerant levels can cause your AC system to work harder without seeing the results you want. Often the reason the levels are low is because there are leaks in the coils. Again, this is an issue a professional will need to handle.
