Picture this: you wake up one hot summer morning dripping in sweat. You remember setting the thermostat so that the air conditioning would kick on during the night, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Temperatures are expected to skyrocket over the next couple of hours and it’s looking more and more like your air conditioner has a serious problem. Time to panic, right? Not so fast! Of course, air conditioners get the most use during the summer months and we couldn’t be more thankful for them when temperatures are on the rise. With that said, however, there are a few common issues we come across with air conditioning systems this time of year and we want to share a few of them with you:
- Leaky Refrigerant Lines:ever hear somebody say they need more freon in the air conditioner? Freon is the brand name for a type of refrigerant, but needing “more” of it is never the actual answer. When refrigerant lines leak, you have a real problem that results in your home not feeling as cool. Call in a technician to evaluate the problem.
- Clogged Condensate Lines:notice water leaking from your air conditioner? A few drips here and there coming from the outdoor unit is normal, but if you notice a serious leak it’s likely due to a clogged condensate line. Dirt and debris can build up causing water to back up into your home.
- Malfunctioning Thermostat:since the thermostat ultimately controls the temperature in your home, if it’s malfunctioning, everything can be thrown off. Oftentimes, thermostats need to be recalibrated to function properly. If you change the temperature frequently or if somebody or something bumps into it, a calibration could be the simple solution you need.
