Fully Operational Air Conditioning
Today, summers are becoming hotter than ever before and it’s not uncommon to see the mercury hitting unprecedented levels during a particularly hot phase. Air conditioning has become an essential feature of every home. Because your air conditioning will be operational for long periods of time, it’s recommended that you regularly maintain your system to reduce energy consumption and help you save on the power bills.
Common Problems with Air Conditioners
Air conditioning is known to become less effective over the years. The most common problems observed with air conditioners include electric control failure, drainage problems, sensor problems and problems caused by inadequate maintenance and faulty installation.
If you think your air conditioner hasn’t been installed correctly, you should call a competent technician to rectify the problem as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage to your air conditioning unit.
Faulty sensors can cause your air conditioner to make your room or house too cold, or they may cause the air conditioner to behave erratically. If the drain (outside the house) of the air conditioner is clogged, it may cause your air conditioner to fail.
Over time, dust and dirt can collect in the suction system of your air conditioner. The filters and conditioning coils will also become coated with grime and dust. If the dust isn’t cleaned on time, it may reduce the efficiency of the unit or cause it to fail entirely.
Maintaining and Repairing an Air Conditioner
To ensure your air conditioning unit is operating effectively, you should call a qualified technician. You may inadvertently cause damage to the delicate unit if you don’t have experience with air conditioners. Alternatively, you can carry out basic maintenance by yourself if you think your system does not have any major issues – just clean out the dust and ensure the fans are working well.
