Houston is in a subtropical climate with long warm and wet seasons This means we use our air conditioners throughout most of the year. When there is a breakdown in the functionality of your AC, you will want to address it as soon as possible to avoid more expensive repair costs and breakdowns.
Without adequate cooling capabilities, you not only create an uncomfortable environment, but you also run the risk of damaging your property. Moisture and high temperatures can lead to conditions that warp wood and other housing materials, as well as increase the chances of mold and mildew development.
When you have a malfunctioning air conditioning system in your home, working with a professional HVAC company can help you to restore functionality and comfort in your space. Call Autumn Mechanical in Houston today for your air conditioner needs.
5 Common Problems with Air Conditioners
If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation or it leaks. If it leaks, simply adding refrigerant is not a solution. A trained technician should fix any leak, test the repair, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. Remember that the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner is greatest when the refrigerant charge exactly matches the manufacturer’s specification, and is neither undercharged nor overcharged. Refrigerant leaks can also be harmful to the environment.
If you allow filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, the air conditioner will not work properly, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.
Electric Control Failure
The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently, as is common when a system is oversized. Because corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems, electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.
Room air conditioners feature a thermostat sensor, located behind the control panel, which measures the temperature of air coming into the evaporative coil. If the sensor is knocked out of position, the air conditioner could cycle constantly or behave erratically. The sensor should be near the coil but not touching it; adjust its position by carefully bending the wire that holds it in place.
When it’s humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged and is draining properly. Room air conditioners may not drain properly if not mounted level.
