The last thing you want to happen in the middle of July in Las Vegas is for your air conditioning unit to stop working. While the summer temperatures are welcomed when coupled with a beach, swimming pool or shaded barbecue, it always feels refreshing to walk into a home that is cooled to a brisk temperature that provides you with a most needed refuge from the stifling heat. When your air conditioning unit no longer provides you with an escape from the summer heat, you instantly realize how important it is to have a properly working system.
Summer Air Conditioner Demands
Your air conditioning unit has performed all year with little problems. The summer season is when your system will be pushed to its limits, so if you have an older unit or one that has not been serviced regularly, you are taking a big risk as the hotter temperatures quickly approach us. There are a few common signs that will alert you to the fact that your unit may need to be looked at by a professional. If your air conditioning unit begins to pool water up you may have a clogged or disconnected drain. It is important to hire a professional like Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning to inspect your air conditioner’s drain lines.
Powerful Air Flow
A powerful air flow is always a desired luxury that homeowners hope to get from their air conditioning unit. When the air coming out of your vent is barely felt at all, it may be time to change your air filters. If you have pets, you should change your filters more frequently due to the hair and dust that domestic animals bring into the home. Professionals recommend that you change the filters every thirty to sixty days if pets are present in the home.
Air Conditioner Condenser Fins
You energy bill is a good indication of whether or not your air conditioning unit is working as efficiently as possible. If you notice a sudden increase in your energy bill, the problem is probably with your air conditioning unit. The problem may lie in your unit’s condenser fins. The condenser fins help to keep the coils cool and fins that are not working properly can impede your unit from working efficiently.
Placement of A/C Thermostat
The placement of your thermostat can greatly affect the performance of your air conditioning unit. If your thermostat is mounted in direct sunlight or near an oven, then it will be running almost constantly. This will cause your air conditioning unit to be overworked and may cause it to burn out prematurely due to how hard it is having to work to come close to the temperature that it has been dialed in at. If your unit seems to be running almost all of the time, check the location of your thermostat to make sure it is not mounted in an area that is always warm.
