Installing or repairing your air conditioner can be a daunting task for homeowners. Thankfully there are professionals trained in installing or repairing these vital systems, who are standing by to help you 24/7.
What is HVAC?
First, you need to understand what your air conditioner is and how it works. Your air conditioner is a component of your HVAC system, heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
The air conditioner is the part of the system that keeps your home, apartment or condominium cool during hot months. It works by taking the warm air out of a space, moving it outdoors and then circulating cool air through ventilation.
What are common air conditioner problems?
One of the most common reasons why your air conditioner may not perform well is a lack of refrigerant, which is the fluid used to remove warm air from your home. If you suspect a lack of refrigerant, it is vital you contact Plumbers 911 because identifying and resolving this problem can be difficult for those not properly trained.
Another common problem associated with air conditioning units is leaking ducts. This is a problem that is difficult to locate, as your ducts are hidden behind walls and in ceilings.
However, the cold air produced by your AC system is moved through your ductwork system. For the sake of your energy bill and to prevent further damage, have your duct work inspected if you believe you are having issues with this system.
Finally, you may have a frozen evaporator coil. This is a more complex problem and will require the help of a professional, such as those employed by Plumbers 911 affiliated contractors.
The solution can begin at home by turning off your air conditioner and letting the coil thaw. From this point, you need to contact a professional for inspection, who will rule out any problems that could cause harm to you and your family.
At home fixes for air conditioning problems
There are a few potential problems with your air conditioner that you may be able to fix without the assistance of a professional. For example, your thermostat may be malfunctioning. The simple, at home fix to this problem is to replace your thermostat or to recalibrate it.
Another common issue is dirty condenser coils. This problem can be remedied at home using simple cleaning supplies and gently washing the coils, making sure not to bend or damage them. Before deciding to take on this task by yourself, be sure to turn off all power to your air conditioning unit.
