Troubleshooting Your Air Conditioning Unit
As the summer rolls on with consistently warm temperatures, your air conditioning system gets heavily stressed. After all, you rely on it to cool your home day after day with no interruptions, and task it to work extra hard during those brutal heat waves. The fact is, an air conditioning unit is quite a complex piece of machinery with many parts that can wear down and cause it to malfunction or even stop working altogether.
The last thing you need during a hot day (or night) is to have your AC break down. You can reduce the chances of this happening with regular preventative maintenance, which will also ensure it is running at peak efficiency, but sooner or later you will start to notice a variety of issues arise that will require immediate attention from a professional air conditioning repair technician.
Here are just a few things you might notice about your AC system, all of which require the services of an experienced Mattioni technician:
AC isn’t coming on: Although this might be due to an electrical issue, such as a blown fuse, the issue could also lie in the wiring of your thermostat. In this case, you absolutely need to call us.
Excessive buzzing noise: AC units that are running properly do make noise, but buzzing from the unit itself is definitely not normal. It could be due to a problem with its grounding, which is extremely serious.
Coolant leak: If your AC turns on but isn’t cooling, you might have a leak in your coolant. It is important to call us right away to address the problem. Note that you may not see visible signs of fluid leaking despite losing coolant. If your unit is a few years old, you should consider upgrading to a newer model which uses more environmentally friendly coolant instead of constantly refilling or repairing it.
Check on your AC system regularly. If you happen to notice any of these issues or any other problems, call Mattioni immediately. We’ll solve any issue with the courtesy, expertise and attention to detail that has been synonymous with our name for over 60 years, whether it involves a simple repair, tune-up or new air conditioning installation.
