With the weather in Longmont 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 gets underway, keep in mind a few common air conditioner issues that you should be watching for when you turn on your system. These are a few of the most common AC problems we run into around Longmont:
Letting your air conditioner run over lengthy periods without being looked at is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in routine air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, issues can begin to compound, negatively impacting 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 completed every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or a variety other critical components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off frequently there is undue 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 headaches that might also occur. If it has been a while since you last changed your thermostat batteries, it might 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 Longmont days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
