The air conditioner can be expected to have wear and tear due to moving parts eventually deteriorating. You can reduce the risk of air conditioner failure with routinely scheduled maintenance services from a trusted professional. The air conditioner manufacturers want to build a positive reputation among consumers to produce a high quality product air conditioner. Inspect the circuit breaker and fuses should an air conditioner fail. Wait 5-10 minutes and be certain the switch is fully pushed off and reset on if it has been tripped. Especially on a hot day, causing the high-pressure limit switch to trip, the central air conditioner’s compressor may cease. By resetting the switch, the switch that is on the compressor’s access panel can potentially get the unit operating again. A few of the most common reasons for repair is what we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share today.
Electrical Control Problems
The compressor and fan controls will deteriorate over time as the air conditioner turns on and off frequently, especially with an oversized unit. A potential problem for many units as the electrical connections and contacts should be taken care of as the wire and terminals is prone to corrosion, which is common in many systems.
Bad AC Temperature Sensor
Designed to measure the temperature of air coming into the evaporative coil, the thermostat sensor is located behind the control panel. As the sensor can get knocked out of position, the air conditioner will cycle constantly or behave erratically. By carefully bending as the sensor should be near the coil but not touching it, the wire can be held in place.
Lack of Air Conditioner Maintenance
Due to the filters and air conditioning coils becoming over encumbered with filth, the air conditioner will not work efficiently as the compressor or fans can have premature failure. In order to reduce the risk of air conditioner breakdowns, make certain to schedule your annual maintenance. To prevent many repairs, make certain that a licensed professional offers professional maintenance as well.
The most likely reason an air conditioner is low on refrigerant is due to a leak, though the air conditioner may not have been efficiently charged at the time of installation. It continues to recycle during the cooling process unlike gas and oil, refrigerant does not deplete refrigerant. The only one that can handle refrigerant is a licensed technician. Test the efficiency of the repair and recharge the unit according to manufacturer, the expert will find the leaks, repair them as part of the process.
AC Drain Line Clogs
In order to ensure it does not have clogs and it is properly draining for efficient operation, be sure to check the condensate line and on a routine basis, especially on humid days. The unit needs to level to make sure it is properly drained as well.
