Air Conditioner Repairs That Reduce Energy Loss And Improve Comfort

Jessica Jimenez

During the summer months, the problems with your AC may not cause the cooling to fail right away. Many of the problems with the AC start slowly and are more visible when they come up on your utility bill. Therefore, there may be repairs that are needed before the summer heat causes AC failures. The following air conditioner repairs will help reduce energy loss and improve the comfort in your home this summer:

  • Compressor and Condensing Coil Problems—The problems during summer heatwaves that cause your home to not be cool start with compressors and condensing coils. First, the compressor could begin to wear, and this can cause the coils to not get cold because the gas does not get compressed. Another problem is due to coils and condensing unit parts that get dirty, which can cause ice to form on parts. For help fixing both of these problems, you will want to call a qualified air conditioning repair service.
  • Issues With Household and HVAC Air Leaks—There are a lot of areas where air leaks can cause energy loss. First, you want to revise your home for air leaks around exterior walls, windows, and door openings. Fix these air leak problems to keep more of the cool air from your AC inside your home. Next, you want to inspect the ductwork for leaks around areas like joints, plenums, and the air handler.
  • Electrical Wiring Problems That Cause AC Failures—The wiring of your AC is also important, and you want to make sure it is in good shape. First, check the wiring of the thermostat to make sure it is connected and working when it should. Next, you want to check the wiring of the condensing unit and compressor for damage due to debris and pests that can eat the insulation off of wiring during the winter months.
  • Issues with Dirty Parts and Dirty Filters that Cause Damage—There are a lot of parts of your AC, which can get dirty and cause problems with energy consumption. First, you want to make sure that the air filter of your AC gets changed frequently during summer weather. Next, make sure the ducts and air conditioner parts are clean. If you have a problem with condensing coils freezing, this is due to dirt and dust. Professional AC repair technicians repair this problem by using a special cleaner to clean the parts and then check the compressor for signs of damage.

These air conditioner repairs may be needed this summer to reduce energy loss and keep your home comfortable. If you have noticed higher energy bills and your AC running more frequently, contact an AC repair service to check for some of these problems.

Everything You Should Know About Heat Pumps

Hello. My name is Josiah. I am a 44-year-old married dad of three. I work in the automotive industry and love what I do. Recently, my heating and cooling unit stopped working. I did a lot of research on what type of heating element I should install in my home. I wanted something energy efficient, yet reliable and lasting. After a lot of research, I settled on a heat pump. A heat pump is a great heating and cooling element that many people don't yet know about. I created this blog to help educate other people on heat pumps and answer questions related to it. If you need a new heating or cooling device for your home, I hope my website helps explain to you what a heat pump is and how it can be beneficial.
