If things don’t feel right on the inside, Baggett Heating and Cooling says, check the outside and look for these 3 possible reasons.
- Refrigerant: Your unit might be suffering from low or leaking refrigerant. Call Baggett Heating and Cooling to have a trained technician recharge the system and repair leaks. If it’s leaking, just adding refrigerant is not a solution. Our trained technicians will fix the leak, test the repair and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant.
- Drainage: When it’s humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged and is draining properly.
- Electrical control failure: your compressor and fan control could be worn out from being turned on and off frequently. Have the professionals at Baggett Heating and Cooling check your unit’s electrical connections.
- Inadequate maintenance: Allowing filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, the unit will not work properly and the compressor or fans will likely fail prematurely.
If your air conditioner fails, begin by checking any fuses or circuit breakers. Let the unit cool down for about five minutes before resetting any breakers. If the air conditioner’s compressor stops on a hot day, the high-pressure limit switch may have tripped; reset it by pushing the button, located in the compressor’s access panel.
Annual maintenance can help improve your comfort and the efficiency of your air conditioner and prolong the life of your unit.
Your best bet is to hire a professional to keep your unit running smoothly all year.
