It is the middle of summer and by now you should know if your air conditioning unit is reliable or not because summer temperatures will push your system to its maximum amount of output. A reliable air conditioning system will provide a refreshing escape from the summer heat. Nothing feels quite as refreshing as walking into your home, escaping from the hot sun beating down on you. The cool air is welcoming and provides a great resource for relaxation and protection from getting overheated. One of the worst feelings to have is walking into your home expecting the cool air and instead feeling a dormant stagnant heat that is a result of a faulty air conditioning system.
Common Central Air Conditioning Problems and Solutions
Common problems that occur in residential air conditioning units consist of faulty wiring, low refrigerant, broken exterior fan and frozen coils. These are common problems that can be avoided with regular maintenance checkups and even repaired with little effort. Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning offers a superb maintenance agreement to catch problems early and avoid costly repairs. Do not get discouraged when your air conditioning unit fails to work properly. Some consumers automatically jump to the conclusion that the unit will need to be replaced completely. However, most problems can be repaired easily with the help of a professional. Do keep in mind that air conditioning units do not last forever and most have a life expectancy of roughly twelve to fifteen years, depending on the size and brand of the unit. Regularly scheduled maintenance checkups will definitely extend the life and productivity of your unit.
When Your Central A/C Won’t Turn On
One common problem that people run into with their air conditioning unit is that it simply will not turn on. This is usually the result or two things, one, that the thermostat is not set correctly. Make sure that your thermostat is set at the desired temperature. Sometimes new homeowner’s thermostats have been set on a timed schedule; this may need to be reset to accommodate your desired temperatures. The second is that power is not reaching your air conditioning unit to turn it on. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that you do not have a tripped fuse. If you do, this is a simple and inexpensive fix.
Too Weak Air Flow – Probably Need to Change Air Filters
If you notice that the air flow from your vents is not as strong as it was last summer, it is probably time to change your air filters. Dirty air filters will affect the strength of your air flow and also can cause a health risk for those in your home who struggle with respiratory issues.
