Common Air Conditioner Malfunctions
When a crack or some other form of damage causes the coolant to leak from the system, it results in an air conditioner that can no longer do its job. Leaking coolant can also be extremely bad for the environment and local wildlife, so it's important to stay on top of maintenance and check for any possible leaks.
Another common cause of broken air conditioners is problems with the thermostat sensor. The sensor is what reads the temperature of the air, and when it becomes damaged; your air conditioner is likely to function as it should.
Lastly, many air conditioners go out due to a failure of the controls. Repeatedly turning your system off and on can wear out the buttons and leave you without a way to control your air conditioner. This usually happens because of damage to the wires, and only a licensed professional will be able to fix the electronic connections and get you up and running again.
Stick to a Maintenance Schedule to Avoid Issues
All things break down over time, and your air conditioning system is no exception. However, having a broken air conditioner in the middle of summer is likely to be far more of an inconvenience than being without certain other luxuries, and this is why it's important to commit to regular maintenance and save you the hassle later on.
While you may think that all you need to have fixed is a control here or a part there, every piece of your air conditioner affects another. Thus, if something is wrong with one part, chances are, another feature could be malfunctioning, and you will be fixing that just a few weeks after your original project. Repairing only the malfunctioning part of an air conditioner is a common mistake that can lead to a greater expense in the long run. A professional HVAC contractor can help you avoid this with a steady maintenance schedule.
Always Hire a Professional For Your Air Conditioner Needs
