In order to assure your AC is working fine you need to call an AC repairman to check it from time to time. Let us show you the 6 most common AC problems you should fix immediately.
1.Filthy air filters
The filthy air filters may be one of the reasons your AC coil is freezing. They may also lower the efficiency of your AC.
2.You may be low on refrigerant
This is the chemical that your system uses to cool the air. If the levels of refrigerant are low, this could mean that there is a leak or some kind of problem with the refrigerant system. In 90% of the cases of low refrigerant there were found leaks. Fix them as soon as possible to make sure your AC is working properly.
3.Is the outside fan working well
The outside fan is responsible for conveying the heat from your home to the outside air. If the fan on the outside unit doesn’t perform correctly, proper heat transfer cannot take place and the air conditioning compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. Worse yet, it may cause internal damage to the compressor.
4.Electric control failure
The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently. Corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems. Therefore electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.
5.Be careful with the cables
If your Air Conditioner starts and stops by itself occasionally, you may have a wiring problem. Faulty AC wiring is very risky and brings a possibility of fire hazard.
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 properly.
