There is never a good time to lose your cool. The desert climate in Phoenix mandates comfortable indoor temperatures on a consistent year-round basis. You can keep from getting hot under the collar by paying attention to signs that your air conditioning unit needs repair. Be vigilant and proactive; be on the lookout for:
- Forced air that does not feel cool
- An unusual smell
- Strange noises
- Excessive moisture
- Temperature variances from room to room
Not as cool as you think it should be? This could mean the compressor is malfunctioning, or that the refrigerant needs recharging. There are a number of reasons that could explain why your HVAC unit is not operating efficiently.
If you notice a “musty” smell it is probably due to a problem with the filtration system or dirty cooling coils. When it comes to your HVAC system, noise, of any kind, is never a good sign.
Preventive maintenance is the answer to extending the life of your air conditioning unit. Inspect your filters on a regular basis. It is advisable to change them at least quarterly, and more often if needed. Homes that have multiple pets, or family members who smoke, will likely find a need to replace the air filters frequently.
A regularly scheduled inspection and check-up are the best ways to guarantee that your system is operating efficiently.
