Oftentimes, people will turn on their air conditioner and find that the air coming out isn’t cool. They figure it will take some time for the cooler to start working, but even 20 minutes later, the AC is still pushing out only slightly cooler air than the temperature inside the home. If the air doesn’t feel cool, you have a problem.

Weak air flow typically means that you have a blockage some where in the system. Changing out the air filter may take care of the problem. However, if you have to change the air filter, you probably also need to have a professional come in and do some normal maintenance. You wouldn’t let your vehicle go without an oil change; your HVAC system needs the same kind of preventive maintenance.

Water pooling around the unit or condensing on places where it shouldn’t be may indicate a small problem, like a clogged draining hose. It may also indicate something that needs professional care. Damp places can create the conditions mold needs to thrive. Taking care of the water and the problem causing it should be a top priority for your system and your health.

Sight isn’t your only way to detect issues with your AC unit. Strange sounds and strange odors may also indicate problems with your air conditioning.
