Top AC Problems that Lead to Repairs

April 20, 2015

With the weather in Haltom City 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 kicks off, keep in mind a few normal air conditioner problems that you should be watching for when you turn on your system. These are a couple of the most common AC problems we encounter around Haltom City:

Insufficient Maintenance

Letting your air conditioner operate over lengthy periods without being looked at is likely to only cause more problems as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, problems can begin to snowball, negatively impacting 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 lifespan. The solution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up performed every spring.

Component Failure

When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or several other important components might be affected. When your system cycles on and off frequently there is undue stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.

Thermostat Troubles

From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a number of thermostat issues that can also happen. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might 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 Haltom City days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.

Being familiar with common air conditioner issues 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.
