If you are among the lucky Las Vegas, residents and your air conditioner was able to keep up with the demand of summer, you still need to be vigilantly monitoring your air conditioner system’s performance as the season wanes down. If you diligently ensure your air conditioner system is properly maintained, there are still concerns that can con occur, generally from the wear and tear of the demands of the desert summer. Having a routine inspection can better preserve your cooling system to make sure the strain did not do anything to decrease the efficiency. There are common air conditioner issues that can develop by summer’s end and we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to relate a few today so you know what to look for.
Troubleshooting Home AC Problems
Clogged Air Filters: It is too easy to forget about the air filters, though in a perfect dimension, they would be replaced on schedule. The flow of air reaching your home is restricted when the air filter is over encumbered. Ideally, you should replace your AC filter at least once a month during the summer though specifics may vary. For people with indoor pets, smokers, and sensitivity with asthma or allergies, the filters need even more monitoring. Changing the air filter is one of the most cost-effective methods to ensure your air conditioning system is maintained and reduces issues.
Dirty AC Condenser: Being that summers bring plenty of BBQ and other outdoor events, it is presumable the increased activities expose your outdoor unit to more debris, dirt, and encroaching vegetation, all of which can decrease airflow. Be sure to cut back the foliage, remove the clutter, and ensure there is 1 foot, thought 3 feet is best, of clearance around the outdoor unit. The unit, especially the coils, should be cleaned of debris, dirt, leaves, and so on. If you are unsure how it is cleaned, hire a professional cleaning.
Air Conditioner Making Loud Noises: The motor is what takes the abuse to combat the summer heat. It is common for your motor to have incurred wear and tear during the hotter months. The abnormal sounds produced by an overworked motor can be an indication the motor will go out. The fan struggling to perform creates the humming sound. If you are hearing humming, or any other strange sounds coming from your cooling system, you should get it checked as soon as possible.
