With the weather in Kitchener warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to deal with 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 ordinary air conditioner problems that you should be on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a couple of the most common AC problems we see around Kitchener:
Letting your air conditioner run over lengthy periods without being maintained is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in regular air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, concerns 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 lifecycle. The resolution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up done every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t operating 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 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 issues that may also occur. 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 in place. After all, your thermostat is responsible for conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Kitchener days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
