Whether it’s the middle of the scorching summer or the cooler (but equally sunny) winter months, having a fully functional air conditioning system is essential in Dubai.
With time and use, your AC may show signs of wear down –some quite obvious, others not so much. Here are five indications that your AC may be on the verge of breaking.
All air conditioners make slight noises –they’re machines with lots of moving parts after all!
If your thermostat shows that the AC is at full blast but the sweat on your forehead says otherwise, thecompressor might be failing.
Poor air flow
Weak or little air flow through your AC vents isa clear sign of obstructed ducts, resulting in some rooms getting more air than others.Dirt, dust and bacteria will gather in your AC ducts over time –and besides blocking the air from passing through your home, it also presents a health risk to you and your family.
Strong, foul odours from your AC usually mean the conditioner’s wire insulation has burned out. However, if you’re noticing a musty smell, chances are your unit or ducts have mould in them.
Moisture or leakage
If water is dripping near your AC or you notice moisture around your unit,there may be a block in the condensation drain tube. It starts as a small leak that you can ‘cover’ with a bucket –but it can turn into a flood when left untreated.
