Summers in Pennsylvania can be long and hot, and they can seem a lot longer and hotter if your air conditioning system isn’t functioning properly. You can choose to sweat it out or take action to solve the problem. Whether your system isn’t working correctly, or isn’t working at all, here are some common issues and how to fix them before calling for AC Repair.
Your ac system isn’t cooling properly:
Dirty filter. A clogged filter restricts airflow, reducing the efficiency of your cooling system and its ability to effectively cool the air. Check your filter and replace if it’s dirty; change it regularly according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Thermostat setting. Check your thermostat to make sure it’s set to the appropriate temperature. If you have a programmable unit, set it according to your schedule to save energy while maintaining comfort.
Covered vents. Supply or return air vents covered with furniture or boxes can throw the system off balance and restrict airflow. Keep all vents clear.
Ductwork problems. Your ducts could leak air or be constricted. Seal leaks in exposed ductwork with mastic tape and work with a professional to clean and seal your entire duct system.
Refrigerant leaks. Your system’s refrigerant could be low or leaking. Contact a qualified professional to repair the leak and recharge the system.
All of these issues can cause your air conditioner to not perform correctly or at all. The best way to prevent these problems is to have an annual AC Tune Up yearly, they can help extend the lifespan of your air conditioning system and components, avoid interruptions in comfort and avoid costly air conditioning repair.
Your ac system won’t turn on:
Electric control failure. Compressor or fan controls may be worn out due to the system cycling on and off too frequently. Contact a qualified professional to check your system’s electric controls.
Thermostat issues. Make sure your thermostat is working. It may need new batteries or need to be replaced entirely. Consider upgrading to a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. You can optimize savings and comfort and get cool features.
Drainage problems. Your system’s condensate drain line can get clogged due to mold and mildew buildup and shut down to prevent flooding. Check the drain to make sure that it isn’t clogged. You can clear a clog with a wire brush or wet/dry vacuum or contact a qualified professional.
