One of the most common AC repairs is clogged air filters. When your air filters get dirty and clogged, your AC system has to work harder to circulate cool air throughout your home or office, resulting in increased energy costs and less efficient cooling. Clogged air filters also contribute to poor indoor air quality, as they trap pollutants and allergens that can harm your health. Regularly replacing air filters is an easy way to prevent costly air conditioning repairs and ensure clean, fresh air.
If your air conditioning system isn’t turning on or off properly, the problem may be with your thermostat. Your thermostat is the brain of your AC system, controlling the temperature and timing of cooling cycles. Common thermostat issues include faulty wiring, dead batteries, and incorrect temperature readings. Buckhalter Heating & Air Conditioning can diagnose and repair thermostat problems to ensure your AC system is working correctly.
Your AC system produces condensation as it cools the air. This moisture is typically drained away through a condensate line. If the line becomes clogged or damaged, water can back up into your AC system, causing damage and reducing efficiency. Signs of drainage issues include leaks around your indoor unit, water stains on walls or ceilings, and musty odors.
Contactors are the electrical switches that turn on and off your AC system’s compressor and fan motors. Over time, contactors can become damaged or worn, resulting in poor cooling performance, system failures, or even electrical hazards. If you hear clicking or buzzing sounds coming from your AC system, notice your AC unit repeatedly turning on and off, or experience reduced cooling performance, call Buckhalter Heating & Air Conditioning to have your contactors inspected and replaced if necessary.
Dirty Condenser Coils
The condenser coils in your AC system are responsible for releasing the heat absorbed from your indoor air to the outdoors. Over time, the coils can become covered in dirt, debris, and grime, reducing their ability to release heat and forcing your AC system to work harder to cool your home. Dirty condenser coils can also lead to compressor failure and costly air conditioning repairs.
