With the weather in Jacksonville 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 kicks off, keep in mind a few common air conditioner concerns that you should be watching for when you turn on your system. These are a few of the most common AC problems we see around Jacksonville:
Letting your air conditioner operate over extended periods without being tuned-up is likely to only cause more problems as time passes. Whether it results in simple 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 affect 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 done every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls can wear out, or a variety other important components could be affected. When your system cycles on and off all the time, 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 host of thermostat problems that might also occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it may be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have in place. After all, your thermostat is in control of conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Jacksonville days. Another way is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
Being familiar with common air conditioner problems 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.
