Look at the fan setting. If it is switched to “on,” the fan will operate even when the AC compressor isn’t going. This is okay, but your electricity expenses will increase if the fan is on frequently. Adjust the setting to “auto,” and the blower will only operate when the compressor is working. This also means the air issuing from the vents will repeatedly appear chilly.
The HVAC air filter catches airborne particles that can ruin your heating and cooling units. If it becomes too obstructed, it can reduce airflow. This reduces how much warm air goes over the indoor evaporator coil. If the refrigerant flowing through the coil becomes too cool, it freezes, preventing the cooling cycle from happening. To avoid this, replace the filter each month or as suggested by the manufacturer.
Refrigerant is critical for air conditioning. It transitions from a low-pressure gas to a high-pressure liquid as it moves between the indoor evaporator coil and outdoor condensing unit. If there isn’t enough refrigerant, your air conditioner will operate badly and may not generate adequate cool air. It may also result in a frozen evaporator coil, which as previously mentioned, halts the cooling cycle fully. You’ll need assistance from an HVAC tech, like one from Levy & Son Service Experts, to repair any refrigerant problems.
The outdoor part of your AC unit is known as a condenser. This is basically a large heat sink that transfers muggy air from your house. If the metal fins are covered with yard debris, the condenser can’t work efficiently. Wash down the unit to eliminate debris that accumulates and cut back grass to confirm the condenser isn’t blocked.
While you’re examining the condenser, ensure the big fan at the top of the unit is going. If the fan motor has gone out, the condensing unit can’t dissipate heat appropriately, and your air conditioner could start sending warm air into your house.
Pay attention to the sound of the compressor operating in the condensing unit also. This is what drives your air conditioner, as the part lowers the temperature of the refrigerant. Then, the refrigerant can capture more warmth when it moves back into your house. If the compressor goes out, you’ll probably need to get a new system and set air conditioning installation.
