The weather is heating up in most of Singapore and that means that soon we will all be running for the comfort of our air conditioners. But, what happens when you go to switch it on when it’s blazing hot outside and you find out that the Aircon Not Cold?
Check out the 3 most common problems that effect air conditioners and how to fix them before you are left sitting in a hot, humid house, desperately calling a repair man!
1. Bad Thermostat
If the thermostat is not working correctly, your air conditioning unit will not blow cold air. It will blow out luke warm air that feels and smells stuffy. This is a problem that can be prevented by having a basic service done to your a.c. by a professional. They can catch the problem and fix it so that the temperature is controlled correctly and you get a steady stream of cold air for your home.
2. Broken Refrigerant Line
This is another cause of the a.c. blowing warm air.
If the refrigerant line is not functioning, there can be no cold air. This is what cools the air off, while pulling the warm air out of your home. This is a more complicated fix and should always be handled by a professional. Trying to fix the refrigerant line when you do not know what your doing can destroy the entire air conditioning unit.
That’s an expensive mistake and one you should avoid at all costs!
3. Electrical Problems
This one is a bit more vague but it no less serious. Any problem with the unit’s wiring can lead to:
- Lower power output
- Decreased energy efficiency
- Loss of power
- Loss of cold air
- Complete system failure
Electrical problems are not for the DIY crowd! It is dangerous and can lead to serious harm. Get a qualified air conditioning repair pro to go through and check the entire system for shorts, damaged wires, power flow issues and anything else that can be effecting the unit’s performance. Do not let these small problems keep your from enjoying your home this summer! Get the unit serviced and have it running at full blast and at top efficiency all summer long.
