With temperatures increasing worldwide, it’s time to turn your air conditioner on again. However, if you’ve not been using it since winter, the chances are that you might need to fix it before you start using it again. This blog post will highlight some signs that your air conditioner needs to be repaired.
The most common sign of a malfunctioning air conditioner is that it starts blowing out warm air even when switched to cooling mode. If you notice that your air conditioner only lets out warm air, or is not cooling as much as it should be, then you should reach out to a professional. You can check the thermostat on your own as well, but DIY fixes can sometimes make things worse.
Not Enough Airflow
Another common red flag is poor airflow. It could indicate that there might be some kind of blockage that is preventing air from getting through.
If you’ve not been using the AC for a long time, then the air filters could also have gotten clogged or the motor could have gotten rusted and damaged. While the problem isn’t that big, delaying getting it repaired can lead to further damage.
Too High Humidity
What’s the point of having an air conditioner if you have to deal with humidity as well? High humidity levels indoors are a common sign that there’s something wrong with the air conditioner.
Any Water Leaks
You might be aware that an air conditioner relies on refrigerant to keep your room cool. So, if you notice liquids accumulating anywhere near your air conditioner, it’s a sign that it needs to be repaired. You shouldn’t wait for it to get damaged further and should get it fixed immediately. Water around an electrical appliance is in itself a danger.
It’s Making Noises
Your air conditioner is supposed to provide you comfort and help you sleep in peace. However, if you notice any annoying or unusual noises, then it might need to be fixed or repaired. Any rattling or buzzing noises are a common indication of simple repairs that won’t take too much time or money to deal with.
