Quick Tips To Troubleshoot Your AC
- Frozen Condensor Coils: frozen condenser coils are a sign of improper airflow. This coil contains a refrigerant that absorbs heat. When airflow is diminished, a layer of ice can form on the evaporator coil. If this occurs, you could end up with warm air or no air from your air conditioner supply registers. The restricted airflow could be the result of dirty air filters, low refrigerant, or obstructed return air in your ductwork, which brings us to our next problem to look at when you’re conducting your air conditioning troubleshooting project.
- Dirty Filter: An Air conditioner needs airflow to work properly. A dirty filter can block airflow which then can cause your condenser coils to freeze up. Set a calendar reminder to change your filter every month when you pay your mortgage. This will make sure that you never forget to change your filter and will ensure that your AC runs all summer long.
- Thermostat Problems: If your thermostat is not working or if it is incorrectly calibrated, it may not tell the air conditioner to turn on. If you have set your thermostat to the lowest temperature setting and the system still does not start, it’s probably time to call your HVAC repair technician, who will likely have to recalibrate or replace the thermostat. The older, dial-type thermostats are more often subject to calibration problems, but sometimes the newer programmable thermostats are not easy to program. When doing air conditioning troubleshooting, you should consult your thermostat manual to make sure you have programmed your thermostat properly.
