Improving the efficiency of the AC in your Burnet, Texas, home is a whole lot easier with regular maintenance. From clogged air filters to frozen evaporator coils, there are several AC problems that are fairly simple to troubleshoot and repair. You should always leave AC repairs in the hands of a professional technician from Clendennen Service. Here’s a closer look at troubleshooting the three top AC problems.
Clogged Air Filters
If you walk into your home and notice your allergy or asthma symptoms become worse, this is a clear indication to check the air filter on the HVAC system. Clogged air filters can’t properly filter the air that the HVAC system distributes. This means the system is likely circulating polluted air throughout your home. Simply changing the air filter is a great way to help reduce allergy and asthma symptoms. If you notice your symptoms persist, even after changing the filter, you may want to consider an indoor air quality test and installing an air purification system.
Frozen Evaporator Coils
Evaporator coils are designed to absorb heat. Once the heat is absorbed, it is then cooled by the air conditioner and sent back into the home via air ducts. Over time, these coils can become corroded and dirty, thus hindering their ability to absorb heat. This can lead to frozen evaporator coils, which decreases cooling efficiency and reduces indoor comfort levels. A professional technician can clean and repair the coils on a regular basis to keep them from freezing.
If you notice the AC working around the clock to keep your home at your desired temperature, this could mean you have a refrigerant leak. This type of leak adds excessive wear and tear to the air conditioner because it has to work overtime to try and accommodate your temperature preference. The location of the leak is what determines how difficult the repair will be.
