Posted on AC Repair February 17, 2014
As winter starts to wind down and outdoor temperatures start to climb, you probably start thinking about spring cleaning. As part of your deep-cleaning schedule, you should include regular maintenance on your appliances, including your HVAC system. As soon as summer rolls around and you start to regularly use your AC, you will be glad you did.
While you are performing maintenance on your air conditioner, you might be interested in the most common problems found in air conditioners, and the steps a technician will take to fix these issues:
- Missed maintenance. If it has been a while since you last checked your unit, ensure that the air filters are clean. If not, you will need to clean or replace them, depending on the type of filter you have.
- Clogged drains.Ensure your unit is draining properly by inspecting for clogs in the condensate drain.
- Sensor or electric control issues. Different controls can shift out of place or wear out completely. In these instances, you will likely need a professional to inspect your equipment.
- Leaking refrigerant. The refrigerant level in your unit is extremely important for keeping your system operating properly. If you are low on refrigerant and suspect a leak, you will want to hire a professional to repair the leak and refill the refrigerant to the ideal level.
As with all home appliances, proper maintenance of your AC system is the best way to keep it running and working efficiently. If you are in need of professional help with your air conditioner, contact All Year Cooling today at 888-496-4396 to schedule an appointment.
