Skyrocketing Electric Bills
If you’ve suddenly noticed a spike in your electric billing during the summer, then there’s a likely chance that something is malfunctioning with your conditioner. Your AC could have a faulty component that is making it extremely inefficient. When this happens, other parts of the cooling system have to work harder to compensate, which draws more energy thus producing higher bills.
Your unit cycles (or cuts on and off), at times to preserve energy. If you’ve become aware of uncontrolled cycling, then you have a real problem. The thermostat could be the issue or perhaps hot air is seeping in and changing the temperature near the thermostat quickly. A professional will know what to look for and the best way to address the problem. Uncontrolled cycling can cause premature wear and tear to expensive parts of your AC.
If the air of your AC is warm instead of cool, then you should get the system checked immediately. This is a definite sign that some components are either lacking the refrigerant it needs, a leak is present, or a vital part is on its last leg.
Circuit Breaker Tripping
If your air conditioner trips your circuit breakers, there may be an electric shortage. Get your system checked as soon as possible may save you from causing serious damage to electric components of your A/C.
Strange Sounds and Smells
Do you hear strange noises or smell an unusual odor from your system? If yes, the foul smell may indicate a wiring issue while unrecognizable noises could signify a problem component. Don’t ignore it. Repair it.
