Refrigerant Leaks One of the most common AC part repairs, refrigerant leaks not only affects the efficiency of your air conditioner—they also pose a potential danger to the environment. To protect both your system and your family, it’s important to have an expert AC tech evaluate your system and patch any leaks. The goal is to make sure the refrigerant charge matches the manufacturer specs exactly. Inadequate Filter Maintenance You probably know that failing to maintain your AC filters can harm system performance, limiting airflow and affecting the quality of air your family is breathing. However, you may not realize that dirty filters can also tax the compressor and fans unduly, causing them to fail prematurely. For best results, change your filters each month and purchase new ones from Del-Air as needed. Electric Control Failure Over time, the electrical connections that make up your AC system can wear out. To preserve system efficiency, homeowners should regularly assess wires and terminals for corrosion and check that all connections are in good working order. Doing this is the best way to keep key parts like the compressor and fan control operational for the long term. Sensor Problems Most home AC systems operate with the aid of a thermostat sensor, which records the ambient temperature of air entering the evaporator coil. When the sensor isn’t operating properly, the AC can encounter a variety of problems including constant cycling. For best results, position the sensor so it’s near the evaporator coil but not touching it. Drainage Problems Drainage issues can pose a serious threat to your AC system. Over time, your condensate drain can become clogged and stop draining property. Not only can draining problems lead to leaks but, left untreated, your system may also develop mold and algae. Fortunately, drainage issues can typically be corrected by using a wet dry vacuum to clean out the drain line.
