Three Commonly Overlooked Air Conditioning Issues
Thursday, July 21, 2016

It’s the hot and sultry season in North Carolina. That means that you want your cooling system to be working as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. While there are a wide range of things that can go wrong with your cooling system, there are a few commonly overlooked issues that can be easily prevented or corrected if you keep an eye out for them.

Commonly-overlooked cooling system issues:

1. Dirty filters/ dirty system. We all know to change the air filter in our cooling system around once a month during the height of the hot weather season. However, it’s easy to forget amidst other summer commitments. However, a dirt-clogged system is the number one reason that cooling systems fail. It’s wise to make time to change that filter.

2. Dense foliage around the condenser. Another issue that can cause your cooling system to fail is dense foliage around the condenser. Like a dirty filter, this restricts the air flow in your system and forces the motor to work harder to push air around.

3. Blocked air vents. While it may seem like a good idea to close off the vents to rooms you’re not using, this practice actually compromises the efficiency of your cooling system. Not only does the air not flow as intended, but the blower works harder to try to push air through those closed vents.

Repair technician inspected newly installed thermostat, found installation error, and repaired. He then inspected the air handler and outside compressor. Discovered freon was leaking, topped off freon to hold me over, and made recommendations for future repairs and upgrades.

Response time was great - next day service, on a Saturday. Service fee was very reasonable, and the technician was polite, professional, and informative.
