Seven Common Issues with Air Conditioners

Clogged filters are one of the most frequent reasons why air conditioning systems do not work correctly. Your AC manufacturer will have specifications for air filter replacement that you must follow.

Some systems required monthly or three-monthly filter changes, while others have reusable filters. The latter need to be cleaned once they get dirty, as the clogs affect the airflow and can cause a freeze in the unit.

1. Sometimes, the thermostat may be the problem, and it may not be set to the correct temperature. Depending on where it is located, if it is affected by sunlight, not levelled correctly or if the setting is incorrect, that can be another reason why your air conditioner isn’t cooling as it should.

 

2. Refrigerant leakages in your air conditioning unit can affect its functioning and will result in temperature fluctuations. The system would need a thorough inspection by a trained and licensed AC technician.

 

3. If the drainage lines of the air conditioning system have become clogged with lint, dust or dirt, that can affect the functioning of the air conditioning unit.

 

4. The fuses or breakers safeguard the compressor of the motor of the air conditioning unit and prevent overheating. However, if a motor dies, the breaker is one of the first things that needs to be checked.

 

5. Sometimes, the capacitors burn-out and that can impact the functioning of the motors which power the fans and compressor.

 

6. The compressor provides energy to the system’s refrigerant and pushes it through the coils for heat exchange. If the compressor isn’t functioning the air conditioning unit will not cool the house.

 

7. A drop in the refrigerant levels can cause the compressor to heat up, and it will eventually cease. Excessive amounts of refrigerant can also become a problem as they will move back into the compressor, causing it to fail.
