Summer is fast approaching. It means your AC still needs the attention! Today is the best time to have a professional HVAC technician look over your cooling system and make any adjustment necessary to provide you the comfort you need. And, if you do notice that your system requires repairs, you want to make sure that they are addressed as soon as possible! Because a malfunctioning AC is going to end up costing you your comfort and your wallet!
What AC Problems To Watch Out For?
Your air conditioning system is generally in fine shape if you have had repairs completed until summer comes. But, if you haven’t, it would be useful for you to look for the following fix:
Problems in the Fan
Your air conditioner has two fans inside it: the blower fan and the condenser fan, also known as the evaporator fan. These fans allow the cooled air to circulate within your living space efficiently. The fan blades may become loose, worn out, or you can encounter electrical issues after a long summer of moving air.
There is a widespread misunderstanding that a refrigerant, like oil in a vehicle, is something that runs out. However, this is not the case, as your air conditioner is provided upon installation with enough refrigerant to last its useful life. So, if you miss a refrigerant, that means you’ve got a leak. Usually, this would be noticeable by a reduction of cooling capacity.
Also, a hissing or bubbling noise emerging from the device and a freezing evaporator coil are other signs you can look out for, which we’ll talk more about in a second.
There’s both an indoor and an outside coil on the AC system. These function to control the mechanism of heat exchange to provide you with cold air. In other words, these coils work together to drain heat from indoors, unleash it outside, and cool the air of your home to get cool air back in through the refrigerant process.
As are dirty coils, refrigerant leaks are to blame for this problem. They are both issues and will result in the same outcome. Ice on your coils ensures that heat can not be sufficiently absorbed by such coils, and so your air conditioner can not work as it should. Thawing or melting the ice on your own is not advisable because it can further damage the system and will not fix the real problem.
