We are already starting to see the temperature start to climb this spring in Las Vegas. This means that it’s time to make sure our AC system is up and ready to take on the task of cooling our house for the next several months. There are a few problems that homeowners often run into early in the year. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some of the most common problems that we see during the springtime months.
How to Turn on Central Air Conditioner
Your AC has been resting for several months at this point, and many people find that their unit isn’t turning on like it should when the weather starts to warm up. Many people report that their unit isn’t turning on at all in fact. The first thing that you should check when this happens is the breaker. You need to see if the breaker has tripped. This is likely the issue that you’re dealing with. If this is the case, it could mean that you have a weak connection to your unit. While resetting the breaker might solve the problem at the moment, you will need to have the problem looked at as this should be addressed and fixed as soon as possible by a professional.
Dirty AC Unit
For your unit to run properly, it needs to be clean which allows air flow to move throughout the different parts of your AC system. There is a great deal of dirt and debris floating around as trees and shrubs are pollinating which can cause AC issues. The compressor coils, fins and other components of your unit needs to be cleaned at the beginning of the season so that it runs properly. This needs to be done carefully so that none of the components are bent in the process.
Air Filter Change
The spring is a great time to evaluate your filter and change it. This gives your AC the fresh start that it needs. You need to be changing your filter on a regular basis or it can cause big problems for your unit, not allowing it to run well and experience frequent breakdowns.
Low AC Refrigerant Level
If you have low refrigerant levels, you aren’t going to be feeling cool air blow out of your vents. Low refrigerant levels means that you have a leak somewhere. Your unit will never get low because it has used refrigerant as this substance is just cycled and used over and over again. If you have a leak, then you may find that the levels start to drop. You can have your leak fixed and then the refrigerant can be recharged.
