The Most Overlooked AC Problems

Now that summer has arrived, your AC will need to be active to keep your home cool. One of the most frustrating things that can happen during this time of year is some unknown problem causing your unit to malfunction. AAA Calvert has run into almost every AC problem imaginable, and we know the common, yet overlooked, problems that plague AC units.

  1. Dusty air filters. Homeowners often forget about their air filters. When filters become dirty, they block the air flow, forcing your unit to work harder to deliver cold air. To avoid this, simply clean out your air filters every few weeks. Doing so will ensure your AC will perform as efficiently as possible.
  2. Heat from other appliances. Your house appliances like your oven, furnace, and even televisions can negate cold air when they’re placed too close to your air conditioner. If the AC is close to the furnace, for example, its cold air will be focused on cooling down the furnace, when the coolness should actually be spreading through the rest of the room.
  3. AC leaks. AC leaks can be caused by dirty air filters, clogged condensate drain lines, and frozen evaporator coils. When the unit is leaking, it will not be performing optimally, so it’s something you should definitely pay attention to.
