Your AC unit is one of the most important and expensive appliances you will purchase for your home. This is why it’s important that you maintain it properly so it works the way it’s meant to. We’ve put together a list of common reasons why your AC may not be working properly.
When it comes to air conditioner maintenance near Garner, trust the pros at AnyDay Heating & Cooling to keep your investment running smoothly.
Change Your Filter
Changing your air filter is the most important preventative maintenance you need to do. We recommend changing it once a month, especially during the hot and humid North Carolina summers.
The air filter prevents dust, dirt, allergens, and other contaminants from entering the air inside your home. Over time, the filter will become clogged with debris and will no longer filter the air effectively. A clogged filter can cause damage to your air conditioning system, leading to costly repair services.
Check The Thermostat
If your AC doesn’t turn on, check the thermostat. It could be malfunctioning due to dead batteries or a blown fuse.
It may also be worth considering installing a smart thermostat, which takes away the hassle of having to manually set the temperature in your home, allowing you to even control your thermostat remotely. They will also help minimize energy costs.
Clean Your Condenser
The condenser coil is responsible for cooling down the refrigerant in order to release the heat from your home. Since it’s located outside, it can get dirty over time. It can also pull in dirt and debris through its fan, preventing it from working properly.
You can clean the condenser with a stiff wire brush and a hose. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this on your own, we recommend the experts in air conditioning service in Garner, AnyDay Heating & Cooling. We’ll come by and make sure your entire system is working the way it’s supposed to.
Check The Evaporator Coil
Doing AC repair in Garner and the surrounding areas for 15+ years now, a common issue has been dirty condenser coils. The interior of your AC unit will accumulate dust and dirt and if you don’t get your yearly tune-up, it will run with a thin layer of debris, impacting the unit’s ability to function.
We recommend you schedule service regularly to have the evaporator coils checked and cleaned by a professional HVAC technician.
