Nothing feels better than returning to a cold home after spending the day in the sweltering heat. Your house is supposed to be a place of comfort, but that may not be the case if you are having trouble with your air conditioning unit.
Is your unit blowing warmer air than usual or making a funny sound? If this is the case, it may be about time for air conditioning repair or even air conditioner replacement. The Brooklyn air conditioning experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating are here to help you recognize the signs of a faulty air conditioning unit so you won’t be caught off guard by a hot home this summer!
One of the most recognizable signs that your A/C is beginning to break down is the temperature of the air. If your air conditioner is blowing hot or warm air, check the thermostat on the unit to ensure it is set properly. Once the temperature is adjusted to a proper setting, check the air once more. If the temperature remains warm, it could be time for a repair.
While the temperature may remain cool, the airflow of your A/C may also be an indicator that there is something wrong with your unit. If you regularly clean the ducts and change the air filter, the poor airflow could be caused by a broken motor.
As is the case with almost anything, air conditioning units are not meant to last forever. The older it gets, the greater the chance of a breakdown. If your unit is over a decade old, it has almost reached the peak efficiency of its life. It’s time to consider installing a new air conditioner.
