Air conditioner malfunctions in your office can be a nuisance. Some of them are cheap and easy to fix, so you may or not need to buy a new unit. However for the best advice, contacting a professional commercial HVAC service may be the best idea. They are experienced and well versed in all things air conditioners.
When Do I Need a New Air Conditioner?
Common Air Conditioner Problems
The first problem is when your unit won’t turn on. This likely happens when the thermostat isn’t set correctly or the power isn’t reaching the unit itself. Make sure the thermostat is set to cool or AC and that the battery is fresh. Second, check the circuit breaker.
Another problem is that the comfort level isn’t the same. Most of the time this means you need to change the filter. This is a relatively cheap fix to maintain your unit.
Another warning sign your unit is going is if your utility bill is abnormally high. The spike in operating costs usually means inefficient operation. The most likely reason for this is a choked condensing coil. Call a pro for a tune-up.
If you notice weird sounds while using your air conditioner in your office, you may need a new fan motor or a fan blade.
