If your air conditioner is running nonstop, it’s could be because the weather is abnormally hot in Melbourne, FL…or, it could be a sign of something else.
AC Unit Too Small: On the other hand, an AC that is too small for a home will run non-stop trying to catch up.
Poor Temperature Control: You may have accidentally set your AC to run continuously. Make sure your AC is set to ‘AUTO’, not ‘ON’.
Dirty Air Filter: The air filter in your AC traps debris like dust and dirt before it can reach the system. A dirty air filter might prevent your air conditioner from pulling in enough hot air, resulting in an insufficiently chilled house and constant operation.
Dirty Evaporator Coil: If the evaporator coil is dirty, the refrigerant within will have a reduced capacity to exchange heat and moisture with the air. Your AC won't be able to do its job of eliminating heat and will have to work harder to keep the room at a comfortable temperature.
Broken Blower Motor: The blower motor is responsible for recirculating the conditioned air within the building. If it's not working properly, your air conditioner may run nonstop to maintain temperatures.
Poorly Sealed Air Ducts: Leaks in your air ducts prevent cool air from being distributed throughout your house. Your air conditioner will have to work nonstop to compensate for lost air.
Refrigerant is Leaking: If there isn't enough refrigerant in the system, the air conditioner won't be able to pull as much heat from the air, resulting in a slower cooling time and constant operation.
