These Are Common Problems Found With Air Conditioning Units

By Lawrence Nelson

In the months of the year where moderate temperatures are experienced you may not concern yourself with the working condition of the air conditioner. However when acute weather patterns are experienced the functionality of the air-con unit becomes a major issue. In the hot summer months, there’s little as annoying as being in a room without a working air conditioner.

In an office environment, it is uncomfortable for both the employees and the customers. Indeed it can cost a company repeat business where first time customers fail to come back due to the discomfort suffered the first time. To avoid disappointment, it is important that you procure a good quality ac unit for use at home or the office. However, no matter the quality of the air conditioner one purchases the process of wear and tear must take place. Air systems suffer common problems, some of which are elaborated below.

Air failing to pass through the vents of the unit is a very common problem. This will obviously have a disastrous effect on the air conditioning of the room. This failure could be because of a dirty filter. Excessive amounts of dirt may clog the airways in the filter and thereby block flow of air through the vents. Another common problem occurs when only hot air blows into the room. Any number of factors including a dirty filter may cause this to happen. Sometimes you may come home only to find that the entire air conditioning unit is not working. This sometimes occurs because of overheating of the compressor due to malfunctioning of the outside fan.

Bad wiring could also cause the ac unit to fail to work. Bad wiring will cause the circuit breaker to trip due to fuse overload. It might also cause an eruption of fire in a number of cases. Infrequently the system may fail to work because of the thermostat. The thermostat may fail because it has defects or due to poor installation. Other issues are peculiar to evaporative air con systems.

One of the major problems of evaporative units is the aspect of continuous cooling without regulation of temperature. Because of this, the room is either too hot or too cold for the occupants. Evaporative systems function by sucking in the warm air in your room and passing it over cool water and then releasing the moisture into your home. The releasing of excessive moisture in to your house has the effect of encouraging the growth of molds.

As stated above, evaporative systems generally perform cooling functions. They do not have the ability to heat your rooms. They have limited ability to function in humid conditions. With such an air conditioner, you are bound to suffer major discomfort when the weather becomes hot and humid. With these kinds of problems, it would be a prudent idea to change to another model. Unfortunately, the evaporative ac systems have a problem of incompatibility with other models. For one the size of their ducts is usually larger than for most models. The drainage system also differs significantly.

Given the significant role that air conditioners play in your life, it is judicious to have your air conditioner installed and serviced by experienced service suppliers who have got a long history of coping with such systems efficiently.
