Air conditioners can be life-savers; especially when the weather turns hot and humid. However, there are signs your AC may need maintenance such as when it stops cooling your home. You may notice that your AC is not blowing out cooling air at all or it may blowing out air that is not cool at all. It is important to note that if you notice any reduction in coolness, it should be taken care of as soon as possible. Often when this happens, the compressor may be the problem and this issue should be reported soon before a more serious problem occurs.
Another sign that your AC needs maintenance is if you notice any odd smells coming from your vents or unit. These odors are often pungent and unpleasant. It is important to note that these odors mean that the wire insulation has burned out. Also, if you notice musty smells coming from your unit, it can be an indication of mold growing inside your unit. If you notice any musty smells, talk with an AC specialist, soon.
Another indication that you’re AC needs attention is when damage occurs to vents. Damaged vents will cause you’re AC not to work properly. Often vents are damaged when they are bumped or if moisture has accumulated and is causing other problems.
Keep in mind that if you have noticed a sudden increase in your utility bills, that may also be an indication that something is wrong with your AC. What this means is that your AC is not running as effectively and efficiently as it should.
To conclude, air conditioners are wonderful and much needed but when they need repair, call an AC specialist, soon. He or she can examine and diagnose your AC and then give your AC the maintenance it needs.
