Your AC unit needs to be working at maximum efficiency for the next few months, as we are approaching the hottest time of the year. If it isn’t running optimally and you are noticing issues, you may assume it’s broken. Here are some tips on identifying major and minor issues in your AC unit, and how to amend those issues.
Do I clean my AC unit?
Consider this before you get started on a plan of attack. Are you cleaning your AC unit on a semi-regular basis? This is something you should address before seeking out getting the entire unit fixed. Usually, you’ll see a world of difference once you get the interior cleaned out and the machine running smoothly again.
Is it running too hot or too cold?
When you put it at a temperature setting and you don’t feel that side is working properly, this may be a major issue, or it may just be locked up in the ducts. This again could be a cleaning issue. But, if you find after a deep clean this issue still continues, professional consultation is probably more necessary.
You want to seek out this assistance because it doesn’t become a real problem until you need the unit to be working and it isn’t. You really only need your AC unit to be working completely perfect for a few weeks or months out of the year, but those days really make the difference. You can go from weeks of discomfort to continuing with business as usual.
