It’s a good rule of thumb to have your air conditioning unit inspected by a qualified technician at the start of the spring and summer season. While this will help reduce the chances of an AC failure, you may still experience a reduction in the efficiency of your system. Before you call for air conditioning service in Glenview, check these simple causes.
Look at the Thermostat Settings
The thermostat is always the first thing to check because it can be the cause of a multitude of problems. In this case, it may be set to “on” instead of the “auto” setting. As a result, your system will continuously blow air out into the home even though it may not be going through the cooling cycle. You’ll use less energy and enjoy a cooler home by switching the thermostat back to the “auto” setting.
Check the Air Filter
You should be changing the filter once a month to ensure your air conditioner is operating with a clean filter. A dirty filter will inhibit airflow and cause dirty air to be circulated out into the home. As a result, your AC unit will work harder and may not be able to keep the home cool.
Inspect the Condenser
The condenser is the outside part of your system that’s responsible for collecting and dispersing the hot air that your AC system dispels. However, if the vents are blocked by leaves, pests, or debris, the unit won’t be able to get rid of that hot air. An air conditioning service in Glenview can take the outside unit apart and clean the inside of it, but you should do what you can to keep the exterior clear.
