When an air conditioning unit is constantly running, it is not only blowing money, but it’s a sign that something isn’t right with the unit. An air conditioner should kick on and off automatically unless there is an issue. An air conditioner that runs constantly is only spinning your electrical meter and costing you a fortune each month to try to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Frozen evaporator coils can be one of the many reasons that your unit constantly runs. Your unit’s coils may need to be changed or you may need to have freon added to the unit. Calling a professional will ensure that you know exactly what the problem is as well as finding the solution.
Dirty coils can also be one of the reasons why a unit will not kick off on its own. The repair technician can check it out and he’ll have a solution that he is able to clean the coils with helping them to be more functional. Once they are functioning smoothly the unit should kick off and on with no problem.
A simple fix for some units is to change the air filter. As dust and debris build up in the air filter, the air for the air conditioning unit is not able to circulate properly causing a strain on the unit. The air it produces may not be as cool as it should be with a dirty filter. Filters should be changed on a regular basis and they are a cheap way to keep your unit working better.
Perhaps your problem lies with the thermostat for your unit. When the thermostat isn’t working properly, the unit doesn’t know that it should shut off. If the unit doesn’t shut off when your home reaches the set temperature then you may need to replace your thermostat in order to solve this problem.
