Top AC Problems that Lead to Repairs

April 20, 2015

With the weather in Ocala 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 kicks off, keep in mind a few common air conditioner concerns that you should be looking for when you turn on your system. These are a couple of the most common AC problems we encounter around Ocala:

Insufficient Maintenance

Letting your air conditioner operate over long periods without being maintained is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in regular 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 impact 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.

Component Failure

When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls can wear out, or a number of other important components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is undue stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.

Thermostat Troubles

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 changed your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. After all, your thermostat is in charge of conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Ocala days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
