Signs Your Air Conditioner Has a Faulty or Failing Sensor

Your air conditioning unit has a sensor that measures the temperature in the room. It also helps your equipment circulate air according to the control panel setting. When this component malfunctions, your air conditioner may experience issues reaching the desired temperature.

Here are signs your air conditioner has a faulty or failing sensor.

Signs Your AC Has a Faulty Sensor

It doesn’t turn off when the room reaches the programmed temperature. Does your air conditioner not turn off when your home reaches the desired temperature? A faulty sensor will continue to produce cool air until the temperature significantly drops. Failure to deal with this problem can result in higher energy costs. 

Your AC constantly cycles on and off. If your equipment keeps on cycling on and off instead of turning off when the desired temperature is reached, your AC will continue to do this randomly. 

How to Deal With This Issue

AC sensors can sometimes become loose and cause your equipment to malfunction. Fortunately, this issue doesn’t mean that you need a major HVAC repair. Make sure to contact your technician if you think that your AC has a faulty sensor. They’ll inspect the component for issues and perform repairs if necessary. 

Moreover, you can avoid problems like this with regular HVAC maintenance. This helps ensure that your home stays comfortable all-year-round. Also, it’s not a good idea to attempt to fix air conditioning problems if you aren’t trained or have no experience with the task. Keep in mind that an AC sensor is a sensitive component, so it’s best to let the experts handle it.
