Your air conditioner works hard during the hot summer months. With this in mind, it’s not out of the question for your unit to run for a good portion of the day.
However, if you come to find that your air conditioner won’t turn off, you need to pinpoint the problem and make an immediate repair.
Here are a few things to do if you find yourself in this position:
- Check the thermostat: maybe you reset it by mistake. Or maybe you have it set so your AC runs continuously. By setting the thermostat above room temperature, this is a signal for your AC to turn off. If it doesn’t, you need to continue your search to find out why.
- Clean the condensing unit. It’s possible that dirty condenser coils are unable to disperse the heat, thus forcing your AC to run continuously. It may be hard to believe, but a professional cleaning can go a long way in solving your problem.
- Change your furnace filter. With a dirty furnace filter it’s more difficult for cool air to make its way into your home. Subsequently, cooling it in an efficient manner is extremely difficult. This is a quick change that can go a long way in helping your AC run at peak performance.
