With the weather in Mobile 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 problems 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 see around Mobile:
Letting your air conditioner work over long periods without being looked at is likely to only cause more issues as time passes. Whether it results in routine air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, problems can begin to compound, negatively affecting the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will impact the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter life. 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 may wear out, or a number of other critical components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary 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 problems that might also occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it may be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. 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 Mobile days. Another way is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
