Air Conditioner Problems You Should Rectify Immediately

When indoor temperatures begin to change abnormally in your house, you need to check whether your air conditioner is working properly.  Some air conditioners are manufactured poorly; therefore, with significant background information of the manufacturer, you’re assured of purchasing high quality products. Some of the common problems with air conditioners include insufficient maintenance, poor installation, as well as inadequate service procedures.  Here are other common problems you need to sort to ensure optimum performance from your air conditioner:

Worn out fan and compressor controls

When the air conditioner is turned on and off frequently, the controls tend to wear out, causing failure in electric control. Consider having the terminals and wires checked because they corrode depending on how frequent the system is used and the existing climatic conditions.

Thermostat problems

Before you claim your air conditioner isn’t working, check if the thermostat is on. The thermostat sensor measures the temperatures of incoming air before it gets to the evaporative coil. It should always remain in its position (just behind the control panel) always. A slight change of its position affects the functioning of the air conditioner adversely. Also, make sure that it does not touch the coil. If it isn’t working properly, install a new one immediately.

Thermostat fan settings

Normally, you can set your thermostat fan at ‘on’ or ‘auto’. However, you need to know under which circumstances you can set either of the options. If you want your air conditioner to run all day and night long, the ‘on’ option suits best. When you set the fan to ‘auto’, it gets into motion only when the furnace gives it a signal. If the air conditioner isn’t working, check if you left the fan settings at ‘auto’ previously.

If your air conditioner isn’t working properly, check if all the settings are correct. When the issue persists, contact Airco Service Contractors. Our team of professional HVAC technicians offers quality repairs and services to clients residing in Tulsa, Ok and Oklahoma Cities.
