When the hot days of summer hit, you will surely want your air conditioning unit up and running at optimum efficiency. That is precisely why it is so important to keep your air conditioner maintained. An annual inspection by a certified A/C technician ensures your unit will function at its best when you need it to. Here are three common A/C problems that your Waxhachie, Texas technician can help you solve.
1) Refrigerant leak: When the air in your home is blowing, but it’s not cold and the thermostat temperature refuses to drop, your problem may very well be a lack of refrigerant. Normally that indicates a leak somewhere or possibly the unit never received enough refrigerant in the first place. Your technician will be able to get your air blowing cold again.
2) Clogged evaporator coils: The evaporator coils sit inside the home and are responsible for funneling the hot air out of the home. When the coils become dirty, which will happen in due time, they cannot do their job. Your service technician will clean the coils so they can function again. However, if you keep your air conditioner maintained by having regular inspections, then this will not become a problem.
3) Sensor issues: Your thermostat comes with a sensor to determine the temperature of the room. It basically tells the thermostat that “yes,” the room is in fact at the desired temperature, time to stop running, or “no,” it needs to keep blowing that cold air. When the sensor malfunctions, you may get an air conditioner that keeps running continuously or one that does not bring the room to the proper temperature.
These three common problems are often caught early and can be avoided, before they become a problem, by scheduling yearly maintenance tune-ups. If you would like to discuss any of these topics with Wayne Price Heating & Air Conditioning or schedule a yearly tune-up, please contact us today!
