When it comes to your AC system there are times you may be able to fix your problem and other times you need an AC technician to come out. Knowing when to call is important. There are a few signs to watch for to know when it’s time to call your technician and let them take over. Here are four signs you should look out for and call a technician if you notice them.
Thermostat Not Working
This might be an easy fix. If you notice your thermostat is not working properly then you need to call a technician. They can come out and install a new thermostat for you and set it up to work as you want it to. You can get a new programmable thermostat to help you keep your home consistently comfortable at all times.
If you notice that rooms are considerably different temperatures going from one room to the next, you need to give your technician a call. You could have leaky ducts that are losing the cool air before delivering it to the rooms. This could also be a cause of your unit being too small for your home. If the unit is not running like it should your home will not stay at the temperature you have it set to.
Blowing Hot Air
If you have your air conditioner on and it is not blowing cold air, this is another sign that a call is needed. Your unit may be out of refrigerant and this is not something you can do on your own. A certified technician has to recharge the unit and put more refrigerant in if you have a leak. Also you want the leak fixed so that it doesn’t happen again. Hot air should not be coming out when the air is on. This is definitively a sign you need to give your technician a call.
AC Unit Does Not Turn On
Another sign it is time to make a call is when your unit will not turn on. Problems turning on your unit is a sign that something is going wrong and it could be in the motor or in the air conditioner unit itself. You need to have someone come out and look at it to make sure that it is not a major problem. This could be something simple or it could be something more complex. Having a technician come out to check will give you peace of mind and let you know your unit is working as it should.
These are all signs that you should call your AC technician to come out and check on your unit. It could be something small and simple or something more complex. Anytime you see these signs it is a good idea to give them a call. You would much rather pay for a service call than try to repair it yourself and end up calling anyway. Be sure to write down all the things you notice so you can easily tell your technician when they arrive.
