An air conditioning unit can bring countless benefits to a home and the family that fills it. From comfortable summer evenings to relief on those record-breaking Texas days, AC can quickly become an essential element driving your ability to truly unwind one you walk through your door. The moment a unit stops working as it should, however, hot air will creep back in and discomfort can quickly follow. Below are some common issues that require immediate attention:
- Dirty Coils or Filters – This is one of the most common issues plaguing area homes and their ability to cool down. In Texas, it’s easy for dirt, dust and pollen to creep into AC units. To make sure they don’t permanently damage its interior, it’s important to keep up on cleaning coils and replacing filters so airflow can remain consistent.
- Low Refrigerant – If your unit has suddenly stopped blowing cold air into your home, the issue could simply be that you are low on refrigerant. This coolant is used by the unit to remove heat from your home and effectively keep temperatures low. Without refrigerant, the entire process can be compromised. To make sure your unit is working effectively, it’s important to keep refrigerant at a decent level around the clock.
- Leaks – If your ducts or unit has developed a leak, your unit may be working overtime to push out cold air. As you may know, a leak will limit your air conditioner’s ability to function as it should and may cost you more in energy bills while being less effective in the long run. To combat this, it’s important to keep up with maintenance and repair any holes or leaks as soon as possible.
