Central Air Conditioning Problems That Can Be Repaired

Posted on: 4 November 2021

Do you regularly wake up in the middle of the night sweating and lose a lot of sleep because it is so hot in your house? If you are unable to cool your house down because the central air conditioning system has stopped working, a simple repair might be all that is necessary to resolve the problem. However, it is also possible that your air conditioning system has become worn out beyond repair, meaning you need to replace it. You need the help of an HVAC expert to find out if your air conditioner can be fixed or not, as you don't want to waste money on buying a new system if the one that you have is still usable. Sometimes what seems to be a major problem with an air conditioning system is actually easy to resolve with help from an HVAC contractor.

A Limited Amount of Cold Air Circulates

You might think that your air conditioning system is worn out if the air doesn't circulate as it should, but it might not be the case. For example, if you are only able to feel cold air in specific rooms in your house, it might be due to a problem within the ventilation system that can easily be repaired. It is possible that the reason some of the rooms in your home are not cooling down is that the vents in them are full of debris that must be cleaned out. Some of the air ducts in your home can be loose or damaged as well. A contractor can take a look at the ventilation system and let you know what kind of repairs are needed or if your air conditioning system is worn out.

Using the Air Conditioner Is More Expensive Than Usual

If you spend a lot of hot days and nights in your home because running the air conditioner leads to higher energy bills than usual, a contractor can help. When there are problems with the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system, it is often due to something being wrong with the filter. Getting a new filter or cleaning the one that your air conditioner already has might resolve the energy efficiency problem. However, low energy efficiency can also be the result of an air conditioning system needing multiple repairs. A contractor can let you know if it is wiser to replace or repair your air conditioning system in such a case.

Summer is Upon Us – Is Your AC Working?

Hi. My name is Laurie Waters. The HVAC contractor was just out at our house last week and did I ever get a lesson from him. You see, we had a warm spell hit and I went to turn our air conditioning on for the first time since last summer. Much to my dismay, it wasn’t working. All I got was a blast of warm air. The fan was bringing the outdoor heat inside. Thank goodness it wasn’t anything major. My unit needed Freon. While he was here, the contractor taught me how to do some routine maintenance around my unit, vents, and filters. I’m going to share this information with you. I hope you find it to be useful.
