The summer time is when you are going to be using your air conditioning unit the most. The AC is something that is needed when the weather outside is hot. The heat can be hard to deal with and can make life uncomfortable. That is why the air conditioning unit is something that you want to make sure is working correctly. There can be a lot of things that through the season can go wrong with your unit. It is a good idea to know what some of them are and the signs so that you can have the unit repaired when necessary. One of the issues that seem to come up with your air conditioning unit is that it will run full time and not stop when it is supposed to. This can be a sign that there is a problem with the unit and the best thing you can do is to call out a professional to diagnose the problem and make the necessary repairs. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning troubleshoots what could be causing your AC unit to run non stop.
HVAC Fan Relay Switch
One of the things that you want to check when your air conditioning unit is running nonstop is the fan. The AC unit has a fan that is supposed to be used to cool the unit down and to help it function properly. The fan has a relay that tells it when it is supposed to be on and when it can be shut off. The problem is that the relay switch can become stuck or damaged. When this happens the fan may have a problem and it will run. When the fan is running it will sound as if the unit is trying to cool the house constantly even though it has reached the desired temperature that has been set. The fan is a big part of the unit and if it is running it will cost you on energy as well as parts and repairs as well. Be sure that if this is the problem you call out a professional to look at and repair the fan and the relay switch as well.
Short in Cable from Thermostat to AC Unit
There is a cable that is sending information from the thermostat to the unit. This cable tells the unit that the desired temperature has been reached and that it can stop running. This cable is an important highway of information. Without it the unit will not know that the temperature in the house is right and that it can stop. This leads to the unit running nonstop. The cable can end up with a short in or even the attachment can be loose. This is something that needs to be repaired by a professional.
Wrong Thermostat Settings
Lastly the reason that your unit can be running without stopping can be from an issue with the settings. The settings are done through the thermostat and if they are not done correctly it can make the unit seem like it needs to run. This can mean that the fan is set to on and not auto. It can be an issues with any of the other settings. It is important to understand your new unit and now to use the settings.
