5 common problems that affect your air conditioning system

The importance of proper maintenance of air conditioning units can never be overstated. Ultimately, all of us want to enjoy a cooling system after a hectic work day or during a restful weekend break. Nonetheless, there will be occasions when we find our air conditioning system breaks down or weakening over time. Let us discuss 5 common problems.

#1 Low refrigerant

Refrigerant is a chemical that helps to cool the air within the air conditioning system. The lower levels of refrigerant can be due to leakage or problem with the refrigerant system.

#2 Thermostat malfunction

If your air conditioning system is unable to reach a certain level of cooling despite lowering the temperature indicator, perhaps the thermostat has stopped working correctly. It might require new batteries or be replaced entirely. Alternatively, it is crucial that the thermostat temperature setting is about 3 degrees celsius below the ambient room temperature.

#3 Dirty Filter

This is by far the most common issue faced in many homes. The clogged filter can potentially restrict regular airflow through the unit. This results in lower efficiency and reduced capability for the unit to cool the room effectively.

#4 Drainage problem

Our air conditioners can create large volume of water as during the cooling process, it removes moisture from the air. To remove water leaking, a drainpipe that comes out of the side of the air handler can be found. The pipe can be blocked due to the growth of algae. You might sometimes experience dripping of water out of the unit leading to a puddle of water on the floor.

#5 Television might be too close to the air conditioner

If you are placing items that produce heat such as lamp or television near the thermostat of the central air or near the window unit, the air conditioner may sense the heat from these appliances and run longer than necessary. It can potentially leak to excess running capacity of the air conditioning and reduce the lifespan of your unit.

While your air conditioner unit may face with the above problems, there is always a hassle-free solution. iHome Solutions has a dedicated maintenance team to help you with any problem that is arising from your air conditioner units. All you have to do is to sit back and enjoy the cool air that comforts your body and mind.
