With summer half over; many homeowners are experiencing difficulty with their air conditioner unit, of course when it is at the hottest time of the season. With your air conditioner on the frittering out when you need it most, you will want to contact Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning for immediate repairs. If you are some of the lucky few who are not experiencing issues, keep in mind that with routine maintenance, many serious problems can be avoided. At this time, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to take the opportunity to relate the common issues air conditioners have at the peak of summer.
Common Air Conditioner Problems
Clogged Condensate Lines: A chain reaction is set in motion when debris builds up in the condensate lines, which then become clogged. This eventually leads to the air conditioner performing an emergency shutoff. The condensate lines will be free from obstructions allowing the unit to run smoothly following a professional cleaning.
Fan Belt Replacement: A simple replacement is all that is required to remedy the fan belts that will eventually wear down over time. The belts are generally an inexpensive and simple fix for a trained technician. A squeaking sound can often be heard from the air conditioning unit, though it may not always be present, and the belt is unable to perform due to breaking or it being stretched out. During an ac inspection or routine maintenance service, the technician will check the condition of the belt and if it is questionable, a replacement is made right then, avoiding the problem later.
Major System Component Replacement: Having a major component fail in the middle of a hot summer day is more than an inconvenience. These major components can be a challenge to make the precise match and it can also be costly to do so when a replacement becomes necessary. This is another problem that can be avoided with professional maintenance services because if any parts look like they are deteriorating, a professional can make the arrangements to obtain the right parts before they completely fail; avoiding the discomfort of a warm home.
Refrigerant Leak Sealing: Refrigerant, frequently called Freon, which is a type of refrigerant, is a major ingredient in keeping the home cool. Without it, the air conditioner will blow warm air. A simple recharge is not enough when the refrigerant has leaked. Before the refrigerant can be charged, the leak needs to be located and sealed first. The refrigerant does not get used up like gas in a vehicle; it continually is recycled and designed to last throughout the duration of the air conditioner. A professional will find the leaks and patch them up quickly.
