Your air conditioning unit is not only responsible for keeping you cool during those warm, balmy summer months. It can also have a huge effect on your indoor air quality. At AC Logic, we have received numerous calls from clients related to air conditioning maintenance. To help you determine if your AC unit needs servicing, these are the four signs you should look out for:
The first sign business and homeowners notice that indicates their AC may be in need of some air conditioning maintenance are the strange sounds that their unit is making.

If you have bad smells in the home, pay attention to when and make note. Should every time your AC unit turns on your home is left smelling bad, you’re in need of air conditioning maintenance. This can be the result of your unit’s air filtration system, your condensate drain, or you may need a new unit.
Poorly Distributed Cooling
Uneven cooling is a sure sign that your unit requires air conditioning maintenance. A well performing and healthy unit is able to deliver a consistent stream of cool air throughout the entire home or office. If some of your indoor areas are warmer or noticeably cooler than others, it’s likely that your unit requires some professional TLC.
A properly operating AC unit should never run continuously. The AC units that we and other specialists install are designed to turn on and off at intervals throughout the day, many of which the homeowner or office manager can program themselves. If you are finding that your unit does not turn off and continues to run, we recommend calling the pros. Not only can a continuously running unit make the home or office unbearably cold, but it also increases your utility costs.
