It’s a sweltering hot day in Mobile, Alabama, and all you want to do is relax in the cool, clean, air inside your home. Your AC unit, however, is, unfortunately, failing to deliver. Many AC problems are can be easily remedied. The best way to avoid some of these inconveniences is by scheduling routine maintenance. The following are four components that could be behind the problems with your heating and cooling systems.
The Air Filter and Coil
The filter or coils in your AC unit can become coated in dirt and other particles. If the coils are dirty, it will be difficult for the refrigerant to act on the air over the coils. Consider investing in a maintenance plan through Air Specialty to maintain your unit and avoid a similar problem in the future.
The Drain Pipe
If you find water in your AC drip pan, it could mean the drain is clogged. When this happens, a water safety switch on the AC unit may engage to prevent water from leaking into your home. The drain will need to be unclogged, and the switch will need to be disengaged for the AC unit to resume normal functioning.
The Unit’s Fan Belt
The fan blower belt is crucial for the fan’s rotation, and the fan must rotate to pump air into your home. If you notice the belt is excessively slack, damaged, or broken, you will need to replace it – just one of the many professional services Air Specialty provides.
The Circuit Breaker
Power switches (the breaker) are usually, built in next to indoor AC units. If someone accidentally flips this switch to an off position, the unit won’t operate. You can simply flip the switch on and enjoy cool air once more.
