How the Pros Spot and Fix Problems With Your Air Conditioning Unit

When temperatures rise, the first appliance you rely on is the air conditioner. However, it may not have been used for several months. You turn on the system, and it doesn't operate as well as before. Take a close look at a few common problems associated with the air conditioning.

When you notice the system is turning on and off at a rapid pace, you may have a faulty component in play. Unless an external factor is involved, such as leaving a window open, every air conditioner should have long time periods where they're either on or off. Your thermostat may be malfunctioning and causing the erratic system behavior.

Turning On the Air Conditioning System: Your Way to Better Health
