Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection


What To Do When The AC Cools The House Too Much

During the summer months, most people are glad of having a central heating and cooling system. When the weather is hot, you can cool down with an air conditioning unit much quicker than fans. It is uncommon to hear complaints about an air conditioning unit that is cooling the house, but there are times where issues may arise. if you notice that your house is much more chilly than you set the temperature to be, this could represent a problem. With an air conditioning unit that has a lower temperature than the one you set to the thermostat, you will need to make some changes to make the household more comfortable. 

Turn the temperature up

Once you realize that the temperature is dipping lower than what you set the air conditioning unit to, you will need to raise the temperature of the ac unit. Keep a notepad on or next to the thermostat and write down the temperature that the thermostat was set to and what you changed the unit to. If the unit is over cooling, your hvac repair firm may be able to notice that it is defective to a specific temperature degree. 

Keep a stand-alone thermometer

When you know that the air conditioning unit is off and is not running at the appropriate temperature, you will need to monitor the interior temperature of the home. Place the thermometer inside of the family room or near the actual thermometer of the hvac unit. This will give you an idea on what the actual temperature of the home is and how of the current hvac unit temperature is from the true conditions inside of the home. Write down the temperature every half hour so you can catch if the temperature is moving without you changing the actual thermostat temperature. 

Call in the HVAC repair firm

The only way to find the appropriate way to fix the issue of the hvac unit is to call in an hvac repair firm. If you and your family are experiencing temperatures that are too low due to the unit, you may want to turn off the air conditioner and use fans until the problem is solved. Show the hvac repair service the notes that you took of the temperature of the unit and the temperature inside of the home first. Knowing the number of degrees that the temperature is off by and any other exact details about the system malfunction will help your hvac service person diagnose the problem quickly. 

About Me

Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection

I almost always have my air conditioner inspected every spring before I start using it in the summer. However, last year I decided to skip the inspection. Everything had been OK for the last couple of years, so I assumed that it would be fine this year as well. Why not save a few dollars and skip the annual check up, just this once? Of course, this was the year that my air conditioner decided to break down. It ran for a few days, but it never really seemed to get cool enough to bring the indoor temperature down. Then it started making a loud noise, right before shutting off completely. By that time, the AC repair company was swamped like it always is when the weather is warm, and I had to wait days for an appointment. Next year, I will definitely be getting that yearly inspection first.
