We have come in an age of a constantly moving forward economy. The living conditions that were only for the privileged rich in the 1960s are now considered as the basic necessities for everyone. One such necessity is air conditioning. Today, almost everyone in Florida has an air conditioner system in their homes in order to cope with the blazing hot summers. Failure of an air conditioner can cause a lot of stress and panic for repairs. An air conditioner can stop due to many reasons, as simple as of a fuse tripping off. Other common causes for an air conditioner to stop working include:
An air conditioner has 5 components:
There are two units of the AC: One inside the home where the fan blows air through the cooling evaporator coil and cools the house. The compressor, condenser coil, and another fan on the outside vent the warm air. The expansion valve controls the regulation of the refrigerant that moves between the evaporator coil and the condenser coil.
Any issues related to any of this machinery can keep your air conditioner from functioning normally. It is advisable to have a yearly checkup to prevent any of these from becoming faulty and replacing a single component is as costly as purchasing a new air conditioner.
One of the most common reasons because an air conditioner stops working is because of failure to replace the worn-out air filters on time. A clogged filter obstructs the flow of the cold air and decreases the cooling of your house. So, if you are experiencing even a little less cooling, have your air filters checked before it creates any damage to your air conditioner. It can cause your unit to leak water and also result in a clogged drain line. Here is an article about why your air filters may be getting dirtier faster.
Cooling can’t happen if the refrigerant is low. The amount of refrigerant in your unit must exactly match with the amount specified by the manufacturer. There are two possibilities why your refrigerant is low – the refrigerant was not added properly when the unit was first installed or more commonly, your unit has developed a leak. Leaks are t reason for low refrigerant about 90 percent of the time. That is why you must have regular checkups of your air conditioners by authorized technicians to check for potential leaks and stop them before they occur.
It is common to upgrade an AC unit and not a thermostat – or vice versa. Often times the thermostat is not properly calibrated with the air conditioner. As your thermostat ages, is ability to keep up with your cooling needs can diminish as parts and wires wear out. This is one reason why we, at EasyBreezy A/C, provide a new thermostat with every install.
