4 of the Most Common Central Air Conditioner Problems
With the hottest weather of the year right around the corner in Southwest Florida, this is a good time to schedule your annual air conditioner maintenance. Many of the most common air conditioner problems are simply the result of neglect and not having the unit regularly inspected and maintained.
1. Refrigerant Leaks
There are two reason an air conditioner can be low on refrigerant, either it was not sufficiently charged when it was installed, or it has developed a leak. Your technician will look for and fix any leaks in the system and refill the unit with refrigerant. It’s important that the amount of refrigerant match the manufacturer’s recommended amount to ensure optimal cooling performance.
2. Dirty Air Filters
When filters become dirty and clogged the AC unit must work harder, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.
3. Dirty AC Coils
AC coils on the outside of the home should be cleaned to prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris.
4. Air Conditioner Electrical Component Failure
Compressor and fan controls are subject to wear over time, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently. Corrosion of wires and terminals is another common problem in many systems, so the electrical connections and contacts should be inspected annually during AC system maintenance.
By regularly maintaining your air conditioner you will keep your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible, while saving money on unexpected breakdowns and repairs.
