With the weather in Calgary 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 common air conditioner problems that you should be on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a few of the most common AC problems we encounter around Calgary:
Letting your air conditioner work over extended 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, concerns can begin to compound, negatively affecting 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 answer to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up completed every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls can wear out, or several other critical components might be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unnecessary stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.
From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a variety of thermostat problems that can also occur. If it has been a while since you last changed your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have right now. After all, your thermostat is responsible for conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Calgary days. Another option is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
Being familiar with 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 dodge AC repair or potential air conditioner replacement.
