Top AC Problems that Lead to Repairs

April 20, 2015

With the weather in Oakville warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to think about as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season kicks off, keep in mind a few normal air conditioner concerns that you should be watching for when you turn on your system. These are a couple of the most common AC problems we see around Oakville:

Insufficient Maintenance

Letting your air conditioner run over lengthy periods without being tuned-up is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, problems can begin to compound, negatively impacting the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will hurt the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter lifespan. The solution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up performed every spring.

Component Failure

When your air conditioner isn’t operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or several other crucial components could be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is undue stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.

Thermostat Troubles

From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a number of thermostat headaches that may also take place. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. After all, your thermostat is responsible for conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Oakville days. Another way is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.

Knowing about common air conditioner concerns can help you check a few basic items off the list if you’re having trouble with your system, helping you get around AC repair or potential air conditioner replacement.
