Air Conditioner Repair

Air conditioners have become indispensable in our lives and we have almost taken it for granted. However, most of us do not bother to take care of the air conditioning unit unless it completely stops functioning. When it stops functioning we run from pillar to post to save ourselves from the heat extremities. On the contrary, it is almost certain that before an AC quits to function it shows some signs. It is upon us to take those hints and do the needful. When you have to call a technician for a dead air conditioning unit the charges are also exorbitant and at the same time the ailing air conditioning that was functioning for so long will contribute to hefty electricity bills.

Hence, to avoid such a situation, it is necessary that you get your air conditioner checked by a professional when you observe the following symptoms.

• The air flow from the air conditioner has decreased

• You hear strange noises coming out from the air conditioner.

• A moldy odor is being emitted when the air conditioner is functioning

• The air conditioner cycles on and off more frequently than it used to do previously

• The fuse associated with the unit keeps on blowing

• You can observe ice in the piping either inside or outside the house

• The outdoor fan of the air conditioning fan has stopped working

In case, you notice any of these symptoms, it is always a good idea to get in touch with expert technicians so that you can avoid bigger problems at a later stage.

However, before you call in a technician and pay a heavy service charge you can carry out some DIY steps. It may prove helpful.

In case your air conditioning unit stops functioning you could try out these processes:

• Check the main electrical panel in the first place and also if there is any secondary panel that needs to be checked as well. In case you find a blown off fuse you will have to repair it and check if the unit is functioning well.

• Before you reach a conclusion, try to find out whether the outside condenser power is on, the 240-volt disconnect near the compressor has not been shut off.

• It is also a good idea to check the thermostat. You could do so by turning off the system. After removing the thermostat cover you could try replacing the batteries. Once you are done with this wait for some time and try to turn on the system. It might start working.

• The other things that you could do is clean the condensate drain, the outside compressor and find out if the compressor is working fine.

Even after trying all such home methods your air conditioning system refuses to work there is no other option but to get in touch with an air conditioner professional.
