Do you feel like you never stop hearing the gentle hum of your air conditioner in the background? During the hottest summer months, it may seem like your air conditioning unit runs around the clock to keep up with the heat. In some areas, it definitely might run for the majority of the day to keep the heat at bay. However, you should be a little more concerned if you never hear the unit turn off at all. This could cause your energy bills to skyrocket, giving you a warning sign that something is wrong with the unit.

You know that you don’t want to pay these astronomical energy bills anymore, but you can’t figure out what to do about them. It’s time to examine a few of the most common reasons why an air conditioning unit might run constantly.

Dirty Coils

The evaporator coils are one of the first parts of your unit to become caked with dirt, particularly if you don’t change the air filter regularly. This simple part is designed to remove the heat from your indoor air by transforming it into condensation. Unfortunately, the coils can’t do their job effectively when they are coated with a thick layer of debris and grime. It reduces the airflow and significantly lowers their ability to function. As a result, your AC might need to run more frequently and for longer periods of time to achieve the same result.

Low Refrigerant

It is quite possible that your air conditioner is constantly running due to low refrigerant. Feel what temperature the air is when it comes out of your vents. Warm air or room temperature air is typically a good indicator that you are out of refrigerant. This means that there is a leak somewhere in your system because this chemical does not simply disappear. Be sure to call a technician immediately to have them identify and repair the leak.

Restricted Airflow

When is the last time you changed your air filter? A clogged filter can drastically reduce the airflow from the AC unit into the home, preventing it from cooling down the house. Feel the air coming through the vents. A weak airflow could be an indicator of this problem. You may be able to correct the issue with just this one simple fix. Remember that these should be changed every thirty to ninety days depending on the type you select.

Wrong Size

If you recently replaced your air conditioner, there is a possibility that you purchased a unit that was too small to cool down your home. Sizing your unit can be a complicated endeavor based on different variables, so consider leaving it up to the professionals. The new air conditioner may run constantly because it is being overworked based on the square footage of your home. This may lead to the unit freezing due to the constant running.

Having an air conditioner that runs constantly is the sign of a larger issue that needs to be addressed by qualified air conditioning repair service.

Impeccable Quality and Professionalism…

Had them install our system when building and multiple other contractors commented on the impeccable quality and professionalism of their work and staff. Worked with them on another building project and had equally great service and quality. Used them on a service call and Mitchell was very timely, efficient, and professional. Provided explanation in detail of what had happened and fixed it quickly. VERY impressed with this company and would recommend to ANYONE in need of a system install or repair service.

I Knew I Made the Right Choice from the Word Go

Kurtis Hall dealt square and honest every step of the way. His knowledge of our dated system, new product information, project scheduling and communication allowed for a seamless installation at our vacation property without my having to interrupt my work schedule to accommodate the project. And living over 5 hours away that was a huge help to me. I knew I made the right choice from the word go. Excellent job Mr Hall! Will recommend your company to others!
