If your air conditioning unit is still blowing cold air, you may not realize it's not working the way it should until it wears out completely. If a unit is cold, does it still need HVAC service? The answer might surprise you — here are signs your air conditioning unit might be in need of AC repair even if you are staying cool in the home.
Your air conditioner stinks
Does your air conditioning unit smell like it has chemicals coming out of it? Does it stink like rotten eggs or other sulfur smells? Does it smell hot or like it's melting rubber or something? A stinking air conditioning unit is something to be wary of and can be an indicator of all kinds of impending failure. Your HVAC specialist will want to inspect your air conditioning unit right away.
Your air conditioner is inconsistent
If your air conditioner blows out cold air but is inconsistent in this delivery, then it's time to have the unit inspected. Your unit may be failing, may be on the wrong power outlet, or may have other issues that need to be checked out by a professional AC company.
Sometimes an older AC unit will be the reason why an air conditioner doesn't have consistent airflow. Your HVAC specialist will inspect your air conditioner and make recommendations for repairs based on several factors. They may also recommend just replacing your unit entirely.
Your air conditioner uses a lot of energy
If your air conditioning unit is using a lot of energy to operate, then it's time to replace the unit. Your air conditioner may produce cold air, but at what cost? There are several more energy-efficient units you can use regularly to keep your home cool without costing you lots of money every month.
Your air conditioning unit is too large or too small
If your air conditioner is too small, it will not cool your entire home. If it's too large for your space, it can freeze over easily and you're just wasting energy cooling what is already cooled. Your AC installation company can recommend a new unit to you within your budget if your air conditioning unit is not the right size for your home.
Just because your air conditioner produces cold air doesn't mean it's working like it should or that it's beneficial for your home. Let your AC company help you in keeping your AC unit in its best condition.
