With the weather in Denver warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to deal with as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season kicks off, keep in mind a few common air conditioner problems that you should be looking for when you turn on your system. These are a few that top the list of the most common AC problems we run into around Denver:
Letting your air conditioner operate over extended periods without being looked at is likely to only cause more headaches as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, concerns can begin to compound, negatively impacting the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will affect the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter lifespan. The solution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up done every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or a number of other important components might be affected. When your system cycles on and off all the time, there is unneeded stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.
From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a host of thermostat issues that might also take place. If it has been a while since you last replaced your thermostat batteries, it could be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. After all, your thermostat is in control of conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Denver days. Another choice is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
