Should My AC Be Running All The Time?  

It’s the height of summer, and you’re trying to keep your home as cool as possible. However, your AC has been running all day, and you think there might be a problem. DTC Air Conditioning & Heating can inspect your unit to find out why it won’t shut off. If needed, we can perform the necessary air conditioning repairs to get your cooling system running normally again.

If your AC is more than 10 – 15 years old, we may suggest an AC replacement to provide a reliable supply of cool air that won’t send your energy bill through the roof. Learn more about the impact of a constantly running AC, and who to call if this problem occurs at your home in the Georgetown area.

So, what happens if your AC continues running on its own without your constant intervention?

If Your AC Never Shuts Off

A broken thermostat could be the issue if your air conditioner doesn’t shut off. Is your indoor temp much lower or higher than where you set the thermostat? If so, contact us to repair or replace it.

Dirty condenser coils and other internal issues can also create a disconnect between your thermostat and your AC. Here are a few other issues that require immediate AC repair:

  • The main control board powers your AC and its components. If it isn’t working properly, it could cause your unit to run continuously. This requires air conditioning repair from knowledgeable HVAC technicians.
  • Your AC relies on the condenser coils to pull heat out of the air. Dirty condenser coils won’t disperse heat effectively. So, your cooling system has to work hard, and it may never completely shut off. You can keep the condenser coils clean and working efficiently with proper maintenance.
  • Although this happens rarely, the relay board could also break down. It powers the fan motor, compressor, and other components. That can cause your AC to run all the time.
