Do you feel like your AC is running constantly? There may be a few reasons why this is happening. Depending on where you live it may be a normal thing for your AC to continue to run but it could also mean that some problems are happening to your AC. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will go over what things could be going on that could cause your AC to be constantly running.
Clogged Air Filters
When you have dirty air filters it will prevent good airflow and can cause the HVAC system to not run properly. You need to remember that air filters need to be replaced every 1 to 3 months. You do not want to have dirty air filters, this can cause issues with your AC. Changing out your air filters is an easy thing to do, one that you can do. Do not forget to change them out, changing them out can help your AC work better.
When you have dirty coils, it can cause clogging to your AC condenser line. Which can then cause damage to your system. You want to make sure the coils to your evaporator and your condenser are clean. You can have them cleaned when you do a maintenance tune-up. You should do a maintenance tune-up in the fall for your heater and in the spring for your AC. You want to make sure that the outside or condenser unit is clear of debris. You should make sure there are 2 feet of clearance for the outside unit. If you suspect that your AC is having problems because of the coils then call a professional to help you. You do not want to do this yourself.
When you live in a place that has extreme temperatures such as we do in Las Vegas your AC will constantly be running. It is normal for your AC to run often because it is trying to cool down your house. If your air conditioning continues to constantly run even when it cools down then you need to call a professional to come to check it out. Even with it being hot your AC should still turn off every once in a while. If your AC never shuts off then you need to call a professional.
Faulty AC Parts
When your AC starts to get older you can start to get faulty parts or even need a replacement. If your AC is over 15 years old then it will definitely start to get parts that need to be replaced and eventually, you will need to replace your whole AC system. If you have noticed that your blower motor is not working properly then you need to call a technician. They can come to check it out and see if you need a full replacement or if it just needs to be adjusted.
AC is Not the Right Size
A very common mistake is having an HVAC system that is not the right size. Many technicians will simply replace your system with one that is similar in size. But this is not the proper way to do it, when a new HVAC is installed they need to measure the home which would include volume, insulation, ventilation, and square footage. If your AC is too small then it will run more and cycle on and off. When it is too large it becomes inefficient and causes airflow problems.
