Why Do AC Units Break During The Summer?

 

ideal-home-temperatureWHY DO AIR CONDITIONERS BREAK DOWN IN THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER MONTHS?

Maintenance is key in keeping our air conditioners running efficiently through the hot summer months. With routine maintenance and early detection, major problems can be averted when you need your AC the most. Avoidance of routine maintenance can cause the AC to work much harder than it needs to as the temperature climbs, eventually breaking it down.

There are 3 main culprits that cause your AC to go out leaving you and your family sweaty and miserable in the heat and humidity of the Metro New Orleans area.

  1. A dirty evaporator coil caused by a filthy air filter is one of the most common culprits. Changing or cleaning the air filter is easy enough but cleaning the evaporator coil is not a diy job. That needs to be left to the professionals.
  2. Another culprit is that the outside AC unit has not been properly maintained. The outside unit can become clogged with leaves and debris, clogging the condenser coil, seriously impacting your AC’s ability to cool your home.
  3. The worst culprit is that your AC needs to be charged with refrigerants (Freon). This usually results from a leak, and should be professionally repaired.

Our expertly trained technicians can keep you cool all summer long with our Maintenance Service. The techs will change your unit’s filter as recommended by the HVAC manufacturer; clean the outside unit to thoroughly remove debris and obstructions; and flush the condensation lines to facilitate optimal efficiency to stave off the summer’s unrelenting heat and humidity.
