With the weather in Hurricane warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to think about as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season gets underway, keep in mind a few common air conditioner concerns that you should be on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a few of the most common AC problems we encounter around Hurricane:
Letting your air conditioner run over long periods without being looked at is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, concerns can begin to snowball, negatively changing the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will hurt the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter lifecycle. The solution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up performed every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls can wear out, or several other important components could be affected. When your system cycles on and off all the time, there is unneeded stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.
From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a number of thermostat headaches that may also occur. If it has been a while since you last changed your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have in place. After all, your thermostat is in charge of conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Hurricane days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
Knowing about common air conditioner concerns can help you check a few basic items off the list if you’re having trouble with your system, helping you dodge AC repair or potential air conditioner replacement.
