Solving Common AC Problems

Our air conditioning is our very best friend especially during the extreme hot weather. And it’s a bit annoying when we experience troubles with these units. We think we are so unfamiliar with this, but sometimes we are not aware that we can fix the problem on our own. Here are some of the common issues that may be encountered in using AC units and how you can solve them. 

Fail to blow air

There’s a chance that when your air conditioning Adelaide doesn’t turn on, it can be traced to the circuit breaker’s fault which might be tripped. If so, you just need to reset this. If the problem persists, then it could be due to faulty wiring or a blown fuse, which must be replaced. Another possible reason is the thermostat that may be needing recalibration or battery replacement. This may be an easy fix for you, but if you’re not comfortable, you better get help from a technician.

Little air blow

If you turn on your Ac and very little air is coming out, don’t panic. The first to check is the filter. The filter may be riddled with dirt and an accumulated amount of dusts. If so, you can just take it out and clean it, as per the unit’s instructions. To prevent this from ever occurring, make sure to have a regular cleaning of your filter at least every three months.

Warm air instead of cool air

The issue here may be caused by dirty filters or thermostat, which were mentioned above. Make sure the filters are clear with debris and dirt through regular cleaning or filter replacement. Other possible reason is the frozen coil in the evaporator, in which the heat is not absorbed by the refrigerant in that coil. In this case you should allow it to thaw by turning off the unit for a while. If it remains unsolved, you may need the help of a professional.

Leaking issue

It can really be annoying when our air conditioning units are sweating just to provide cool air. This can be a but messy and inconvenient to ignore, but there are some things you can try to fix them on your own. Maybe the culprit is the drain line of the condensate. It can be clogged by dirt or foreign elements that got stuck on your unit. This can be solved by using a vacuum. Some even recommend pouring little amount of vinegar in your drain line to avoid buildup of dirt. Even a good Rinnai hot water repairs specialist would be able to help if all else fails.
