With the weather in Toronto warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to deal with as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season begins, keep in mind a few ordinary air conditioner issues that you should be on the lookout for when you turn on your system. These are a few that top the list of the most common AC problems we encounter around Toronto:
Letting your air conditioner work over lengthy periods without being maintained is likely to only cause more problems as time passes. Whether it results in simple air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, problems can begin to compound, negatively changing the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will impact the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter life. The resolution to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up performed every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, the compressor and fan controls may wear out, or a number of other important components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is undue stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.
From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a variety of thermostat problems that can also occur. If it has been a while since you last swapped out your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. After all, your thermostat is responsible for conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Toronto days. Another way is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
