Keeping your home cool in the heat of summer can be a challenge. You’re sure to lean on your AC to help your home stay as comfortable as it should be when the weather outside is extremely hot. Knowing some of the most common AC problems that you may be forced to deal with may be helpful to any homeowner.
It’s important to get the most out of your AC by keeping it tuned up at least once a year. There are a number of things that will be done during this process that may include checking the electrical components of your unit, cleaning the condenser and making sure all of the coils are clear and free of debris.
One thing that frequently occurs during the summer is refrigerant leaks. This can prevent the air in your home from getting as cool as it should be.
Freon is the necessary component that helps get the air in your AC unit as cool as you want it to be. It’s necessary to check to ensure there is enough of this in your unit and leaks can decrease the necessary amount.
Clogged Air Filters
It’s important to help your AC unit run efficiently as it should to keep a fresh air filter in place at all times. When these get overly dirty or clogged because they haven’t been changed, this can prevent the air in your home from getting as cool as necessary.
Take the time to change the filter at least once every three months for optimal results.
