With the weather in Charlotte 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 gets underway, keep in mind a few common air conditioner concerns 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 Charlotte:
Letting your air conditioner work over lengthy periods without being tuned-up is likely to only cause more headaches 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 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 life. The solution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up performed every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or a variety other important components could 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 headaches that might also take place. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have in place. 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 Charlotte days. Another option is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
