Dirty coils, blocked condensers, inadequate refrigerant - all of these should be checked to make sure your air conditioner is working at peak efficiency. Air conditioners quite often go out at the time they are needed most, usually because they are working harder to produce the same level of comfort. An inefficient air conditioner, however, can be made to work like new again with a little preventive maintenance. That way small mechanical problems can be caught early, before they become expensive to fix.
Signs Your Air Conditioner Has Lost Efficiency
Dirty Evaporator Coils. Dust, debris, rust, and dirt will coat the evaporator coils if they aren't cleaned regularly. Dirty coils can’t transfer heat as efficiently, so the air conditioner has to work harder to produce the same level of home comfort. Over time, this inefficiency can drive up your utility bills.
Inadequate Refrigerant. Usually, a leak is to blame for low refrigerant levels. However, a quick refrigerant recharge can keep your unit operating at peak efficiency.
Leaky Ducts. Leaking ducts can reduce your unit's efficiency dramatically. Even if your unit is new, leaking ducts can make it difficult for your a/c to deliver the home comfort you expect. To get the most out of your air conditioner, make sure your ducts are well insulated.
Dirty Filters. Dirty or clogged air filters can become a source of air pollution in addition to making your air conditioner work harder. The harder your air handler has to work to push air through a clogged filter, the more energy it has to consume, which increases your energy bills. Besides the increased energy consumption, the air conditioner also runs the risk of overheating when the filters are clogged or dirty.
Air conditioners tend to go out when you need them most. Make sure you're ready for summer by booking a SERVIZ HVAC Repair Pro at (844) 473-7849.
