Common Reasons for Air Conditioner
Air conditioners can run for many years without problems. After a while, a number of issues can arise. The trick is to find the reason before the unit is serviced.
1. Why is the air conditioner leaking?
2. Why is the air conditioner not cold?
3. Why is the air conditioner noisy?
4. Why is air conditioners having foul odor smell?
5. How often does the air conditioner be service?
6. Can we service air conditioner by ourselves?
7. How does the chemical washing been used for fan coil units if it get dirty?
8. Where to source for reliable air conditioning service contractor?
9. Which to seek advise before purchase air conditioner unit, after sales service and warranty service?
Air conditioning units can leak because of a choked drainage pipe. Dirty particles prevent water drainage and cause fluid to leak from the fancoil. Another possibility is a poor installation in which the gradient of the drainage pipe is not set properly.
This can happen because of a dirty or clogged blower/air filter, the thermostat was set too high, or the unit itself is too small for the room. Other factors such as direct sunlight in a room play a role too, while a low level of refrigerant will prevent cold air from blowing.
You might need a faulty spare part changed, or there could just be dirt in the blower and fancoil. If the wall surface the unit is secured in is uneven, this can lead to vibrations and excess noise.
Air conditioners can produce a foul odor because room odors, cigarette smoke, or pollutants are getting absorbed into the system. These odors in turn get discharged with the flow of air coming out of the air conditioner.
All units must be serviced. Otherwise, the air conditioner will eventually stop producing cold air. Water leaks may become a problem over time also. Residential units should be serviced every two months, while commercial and office air conditioners should be professionally serviced once a month.
Air conditioner units can be serviced by the owner in some circumstances. Fan coil covers and air filters can be cleaned. Qualified service technicians are usually the best option any other servicing. They use the tools and equipment designed for tasks such as checking safety circuits, draining pipes, refrigerant pressure, etc.
Chemical washing is another expert task. Fan coil units are best cleaned with a chemical wash, but they must be dismantled to do so. Cooling coils get dirty and the only way to clean them thoroughly is to remove the parts from the air conditioner.
To address common issues, sign a service maintenance contract. One-year contracts are common and customers often get discounts on spare parts and chemical treatments, priority servicing during office hours, and high-quality service to ensure a more pleasant/healthy living environment. Choosing the right contractor means finding one with the best workmanship and materials for the price. Also check for guarantees and make sure they have a registered office.
Addressing issues also starts with picking the right unit. First, figure out where you need air conditioning, and then determine the brand and type of unit needed. Seek advice from a professional contractor if necessary. Always check on the warranty period for the unit and parts such as spares and the compressor. Your air conditioning company should provide this information when you consider a purchase.
