MOST COMMON AIR CONDITIONING PROBLEMS
I know we might not be there yet, but Spring and Summer are coming! You might be enjoying every ounce of heat right now, but come late spring and summer, you might be sick of it. Lancaster Brothers knows air conditioners like the backs of our hands. The winter can take a toll on all of our appliances, even if we don’t use them! Here are some common problems that might pop up when you first flick on your air conditioner!
DIRTY AIR CONDITIONING FILTERS
Did you forget about changing your filter this season? Or last season? Or maybe it’s been a little longer than you can remember? Dirt can clog up your filter and not only can it make your air conditioner not work, it can be bad for your health! As dirt and dust builds up in the filter, it stops working as well to catch the dust and can lead to air being blocked by all the blockage. Make sure you’re replacing your filter!
Just like your refrigerator, your air conditioner cools air through refrigerant fluids. Sometimes the fluids are just low and need topping off, but if there’s a leak you might have a bigger issue. If you have a leak, fluid won’t hold in the system, no matter how much you add! Without refrigerant fluid, your air conditioner can’t cool the air and subsequently, can’t cool you! If you think you might have a leak, call us up to get that cool breeze flowing again.
The evaporating coils in an air conditioner cools down the hot air that comes into an air conditioner. The coil can freeze for a multitude of reasons, but if it does, you’ll just be getting hot air blown back out at you! If your filter is dirty, or if the refrigerant is low, your coil can freeze and won’t do its job correctly. We can fix this in a jiffy and get your air conditioner running good as new within the day!
The air conditioner fan is used to blow air into the machine to cool it down. If it’s not working, you won’t be getting any air at all! Hot or cold! If the fan motor is broken, or the wiring isn’t right, your air conditioner won’t be in fighting shape at all. If your fan isn’t working, it can lead to further problems down the road that could damage the whole air conditioner, so this isn’t something to be taken lightly. If your fan is broken, make sure you get it fixed before trying to put all the pressure of an air conditioner on a broken part.
These are just a few of the problems that can plague your air conditioner and ruin your house’s great climate. If you’re having any issues with your air conditioner, make sure you give Lancaster Brothers Heating and Cooling a call!
