Air conditioners are very important for interior home comfort as the Minnesota weather warms up. Part 1 of this series noted a number of common AC issues homeowners find as spring heats up, including a dirty filter, a tripped breaker, and leaking refrigerant. Air conditioning repair services are available locally to ensure your home is safe and comfortable during the warmer seasons. Here are 3 more common spring repairs we make to help homes stay cool: Woodbury MN Air Conditioning Repair
Drain Line Clogged
If your drain line is clogged, this will likely impact your air conditioning. AC units are designed to pull moisture out of the humid air, and especially in our humid Minnesota summers, it helps to keep our interiors cool. The moisture pulled usually exits your home through the plumbing system, though drain pans with a secondary condensate drain are used as an additional moisture collecting resource. Sometimes, algae can grow within this system which can create blockage. This can result in water damage. It’s a good idea to contact a HVAC contractor to perform spring maintenance on your air conditioner to help ensure its safety and functionality.
A Leaking Duct
Leaking ducts are one of the biggest reasons an AC unit is not running efficiently. Duct systems supply rooms with heated or cooled air that is conditioned by your HVAC system, as well as circulate air back to the HVAC system. A leaking duct located outside of your interior is basically circulating that air to the outdoors, rather than in your home. This is massively inefficient as well as a waste of money. Consider that your HVAC system is also pulling in unfiltered air, causing dirt and debris to enter your ducts and system. A duct leak may consist of a puncture, split seams, or even ducts that are totally disconnected. Have an AC repair service check out your ducts to ensure you’re receiving maximum efficiency.
Dirty coils are very inefficient for your HVAC system. They can cause more electricity usage and make it more difficult to cool your home. Evaporator coils and condenser coils both play a crucial role in the process of transferring the refrigerant between a liquid state, then to a gas state, and back to a liquid state. Ensure these coils are clean to maximize your efficiency and cooling capacity. Both coils are essential to the efficient functioning of your air conditioning unit. These coils are also expensive to fix, so preventative maintenance is in your home’s best interest.
Many people find that spring is an excellent time to make sure your air conditioner is running efficiently, and call a local HVAC contractor to perform any necessary spring maintenance. Air conditioner repairs such as a clogged drain line, a leaking duct, and cleaning/repairing dirty coils are often performed in the spring.
