Air quality encompasses temperature, air quality, and humidity. When your unit is not working as it should be one or more factor may be compromised. Most malfunctions have simple solutions you may be able to fix on your own. If not, don’t worry, that is what the technicians at All Day Air Cooling and Heating are here for.
The biggest problem, of course, is that your AC unit stops working altogether. If your unit stops unexpectedly and won’t turn back on check the batteries in the thermostat first. If they are dead, replace them. If once replaced you turn it on to cooling and it still won’t come on after a few minutes, there may be a bigger issue. Check the A/C’s circuit breaker in the panel of your home. If a switch has been flipped, turn it back on and your AC should now work. If you are still experiencing air conditioning issues, call us.
Your A/C Cools your home unevenly.
Weird temperature variations throughout the home are a sign of leaks in your ductwork, lack of insulation, or even blocked vents. Make sure all vents are clean and open. If your ductwork needs repair you will need an AC technician.
Your AC is blowing warm air.
A clogged air filter could be at fault, an incorrect setting on your thermostat could be the culprit, if your thermostat is set to the coldest setting and it’s still not blowing cold air, you may need a new thermostat.
Leaks – Older windows and doors may be allowing air to leak – cool air out and hot air in. Leaking ductwork could also be at fault. One more overlooked issue is the unit outside. Make sure it is clear of debris from leaves and sticks.
You have water dripping from your Air Conditioner
If you have a water drip your condensation line may be clogged. That is the PVC pipe that exists the unit. If it is you can flush it out by using compressed air using the manufacturer’s instructions or call an HVAC tech.
You hear odd noises emanating from your A/C
Rattling, clanging, thumping, or other squealing noises are not normal. They indicate friction. A motor bearing may be at fault or a belt may have broken. It could also be a failing motor or just loose hardware. In any case, it’s best to call a professional before permanent damage is done causing expensive repairs or replacement.
