Here in the Las Vegas Valley the weather is starting to warm up. The chilly days of winter are gone and the beautiful days of spring are here to stay. If you have lived here in Las Vegas for very long you probably know that spring does not last very long. Before you know i,t you will be turning on your air conditioner to keep your house nice and cool. During the upcoming summer months we hope that you will not have any problems with your air conditioning unit. If you do have some problems they may be one of the frequent issues that our technicians here at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning run into when they go on service calls for our customers.
Dirty AC Filters
Sometimes the reason that your air conditioning unit is not working is simply because the filters are clogged or extremely dirty. If air cannot properly run through your filters than air will not be able to flow through your air conditioning unit like it should. This could result in your air conditioning freezing up and not working. Your air filters need to be changed regularly. The frequency will depend on what kind of filter you chose for your home. Check the packaging on the filter when you buy it to see what is recommended.
Compressor Not Working
Your air conditioning unit cannot function properly without the compressor. The compressor helps get the energy to the refrigerant and sends it through the coils to carry out heat exchange. When your compressor is not working like it should your house will not get cool. Eventually your compressor will get hot and seize. When you have a maintenance call on your unit the technician will check to see if your compressor needs any work performed on it.
Broken AC Thermostat
Another part that can cause your air conditioning unit to stop working is your thermostat. If your thermostat is not accurately reading the temperature inside your home it will not tell your air conditioning unit how hard it needs to work to keep your home comfortable. You may need to replace the batteries if your thermostat runs on batteries, clean the thermostat, or replace your thermostat.
When you have a coolant leak your air conditioning unit will not be able to keep a steady temperature in your home. Technicians will check to make sure that they do not see any leaks when they come out for a routine maintenance call. They can help fix the leak before it causes other problems with your unit.
Need to Clean Air Conditioning Coils
Every air conditioning unit has evaporator coils and condenser coils. Evaporator coils are located inside the unit and condenser coils are outside of the unit. Both these types of coils need to be cleaned so that they can function properly. Regular maintenance of these coils will help your air conditioning unit to function well on a regular basis.
