Top AC Problems that Lead to Repairs

April 20, 2015

With the weather in Atlanta warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to deal with as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season begins, keep in mind a few normal air conditioner concerns that you should be on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a few that top the list of the most common AC problems we see around Atlanta:

Insufficient Maintenance

Letting your air conditioner work over lengthy periods without being maintained is likely to only cause more problems as time passes. Whether it results in regular air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, concerns can begin to build, negatively changing the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will affect the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter life. The answer to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up done every spring.

Component Failure

When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls can wear out, or several other important components could be affected. When your system cycles on and off all the time, there is unneeded 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 host of thermostat problems that might also take place. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it may be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have right now. After all, your thermostat is in charge of conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Atlanta days. Another option is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
