Though summer is almost over, it’s still a busy time of year for air conditioning systems in many parts of the country. Unfortunately, the hot weather and increased workload raises the risk of something going wrong inside your air conditioner. In today’s post, Cooper Brothers, Inc., the top air conditioner repair company in our area, will discuss some common HVAC issues and how to prevent them.
Vegetation growing around your outdoor unit can prevent heat from escaping your HVAC system. This obstructed airflow can lead to overheating and poor system performance. Dirty air filters and coils can also cause obstructed airflow. To prevent these problems, make sure to hire an HVAC company for a system inspection and checkup. They can perform the necessary maintenance to keep your air conditioning system in good condition.
Running your air conditioner won’t deplete its refrigerant reserves; however, leaks in the refrigerant lines and coils will. An air conditioner with a low refrigerant charge will have a difficult time cooling the air inside your home. This will cause the system to run longer, consume more energy and work harder. Eventually, the system might even break down. Fortunately, we can detect and seal refrigerant leaks, and are experts at air conditioner replacement and repair.
You should fix issues with poor airflow and low refrigerant as soon as possible because they can cause compressor failure. The aforementioned problems can push the compressor over its limits, leading to its breakdown. A broken compressor can be costly to fix, so you should make sure to get in touch with us to deal with your HVAC problems as soon as possible.
