With the weather in Canada warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to put up 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 on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a few that top the list of the most common AC problems we see around Canada:
Letting your air conditioner run over long periods without being maintained is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, issues 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 life. The answer to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up done every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or a number of other crucial components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot 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 number of thermostat problems that might also take place. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. 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 Canada days. Another option is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
