In the height of summer, you probably rely on your Air Conditioning unit to supply your home with cool air and remove the warm air. This is its primary job and one that it is probably very good at; until something goes wrong.
If your air conditioner stops working you’ll appreciate just how important it is. Unfortunately, repairs are often expensive; that’s why it’s better to understand potential issues and take steps to prevent them from occurring.
Of course, if you do develop a problem you should have the number of a firm specializing in air conditioning Sydney.That will at least ensure you have a fast response and get the issue resolved quickly.
Every air conditioner has a filter, this prevents dirt and debris from getting into the motor or your home. However, if the air filter is dirty it will block the air flow; effectively shutting down the air conditioner unit.
That’s why it’s so important to clean them regularly. If you’re not sure whether the filter needs a clean, remove it from its housing and hold it up to the light. If no light gets through, its in needs of an urgent clean.
The thermostat tells the air conditioner to turn on or off, depending on whether your house needs to be cooled more or if it is already at the right temperature.
If the thermostat is broken or the air conditioner is not set to auto; you’ll find that the unit blows out warm air,not cool air.
If you have leaking refrigerant then your air conditioner will not be able to maintain an air temperature. In addition, the leaking fluid will place a strain on the compressor motor. If you damage the compressor motor you’re probably going to be looking at replacing the whole unit; this will be the more cost-effective solution. But that’s not cheap.
One of the biggest issues that face an air conditioner is the inability to push the water that builds up out of its system. If it can’t get rid of this water it will build up at the base of the pump; eventually allowing water into the air conditioner and potentially destroying the electrics or the motor.
In short, you’ll be looking for another air conditioner.
One of the most common issues with air conditioner is an inadequate supply, this will be indicated by the fact that the power keeps shutting off.
A power issue can be that the cable can’t handle the power going through it, causing the socket to get hot and potentially tripping your breaker. This will protect the air conditioner unit but prevent it from working. You’ll need the help of an electrician to resolve this issue.
There are plenty of other components that can fail on an air conditioner; that’s why it is so important to have the device maintained every year; prevention is certainly better than cure!
