Air Conditioning Problems That You Can Take Care of
Thermostat – Check to ensure that the thermostat is set correctly. If your air conditioning is blowing cool air sometimes but warm air at others then the fan setting may be set to “ON” on your thermostat. If this is the case then it is just the fan that is running and would explain why you are getting warm air at times. Set your thermostat to AUTO instead to fix the problem.
Filter – An air filter that has not been changed in a while may be dirty and this can cause multiple problems. A dirty air filter will make the air conditioning system struggle with being able to circulate enough conditioned air in your home to the desired temperatures. Another problem that a dirty air filter can cause is it will literally make the evaporator coil inside of the system freeze over. This ice will also block the conditioned air being distributed throughout your home. To resolve this, exchange out the dirty air filter with a fresh one and make sure you frequently change the filter based upon specified instructions from the manufacturer.
Outside Unit – The outside unit for your air conditioner, which is called a condenser, may be dirty. If this is the case it will have a hard time dissipating the heat from the indoor air and transferring it to the outdoor condenser. To resolve this problem you will need to clean the outside condenser and in doing so you must be extremely careful as to not damage any of the fins on it. You will use a garden hose and set it to a gentle spray. If you are unsure on how to do this or not comfortable in doing so then you can give Cypress Heating and Air conditioning in Katy a call and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Problems a Professional Needs to Solve
Fan Motor – If the fan motor for your heating and cooling system has gone bad then it will not be able to remove heat from your home, meaning that your air conditioning will not be able to condition the air in your home.
Refrigerant – Refrigerant is the liquid that assists in absorbing the heat from the indoor air. If your system is low on refrigerant or if there is a leak then the air conditioning system will not be able to absorb enough of the heat to condition the inside air. If you are low on refrigerant then you will have a leak somewhere in the tank where the refrigerant flows.
Signs that you have a refrigerant leak will include ice buildup on the refrigerant line as well as the outside unit. You may also hear bubbling or hissing noises coming from your system and if the system is not able to cool your home during hot days but cools just fine during cool days and during the night when outside temperatures are lower.
If you notice any of these signs, you should immediately cut off your air conditioning system and get in touch with Cypress heating and air conditioning in Katy as soon as you can. If you continue to run the air conditioning system in this state then it can cause irreparable damage to the compressor and it will need to be replaced.
Problem 3: A bad compressor
Compressor – The compressor is the main component in your air conditioning system. It circulates refrigerant between the inside and outside unit. If the compressor is damaged, then the air conditioning will not be able to condition the indoor air.
If there is a problem with the compressor, then in most cases it will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, the compressor can be rather expensive. So you should do everything you can to make sure you keep your air conditioning system working at peak performance, even consider having annual inspections on your system and give it a tune-up one or twice a year. If you are interested in having your home’s air conditioning system scheduled for annual check-up and a tune-up then give Cypress heating and air conditioning in Katy a call today.
