Top 3 Common Spring Air Conditioner Problems

Top 3 Common Spring Air Conditioner Problems

During the spring, people spend most of their time outdoors that they tend to forget about their A/C system. We often hear them say “out of sight, out of mind.” Unfortunately, air conditioning problems are inevitable during the spring season. Let’s check out these top 3 common spring A/C problems.

1.   Clogged Filters

One of the common reasons for an inefficient air conditioner is a dirty air filter. The air filter eliminates harmful particles such as dust, pollen, mold, and bacteria that can pollute your indoor air. When your air filter is clogged, it causes your system to use more energy than needed, causing a spike on your energy costs.  Experts advise homeowners always to clean their filters regularly and change them every after three months.

2.   Broken Fuse or Blown Circuit Breaker

A broken fuse or a  blown circuit breaker can also lead to a malfunctioning air conditioning system, and it’s pretty frustrating especially in springtime and hot summer months. The hot temperature forces your A/C to work under pressure, causing the condenser to heat up. In this situation, the fuse may trip or blow. If you think you have a broken fuse or a blown circuit breaker, don’t hesitate to contact a professional technician.

3.   Defective Thermostat

Feeling too hot or too cold? Temperature imbalance is a common problem among homeowners who are still using traditional thermostats. Go wise by upgrading to a programmable thermostat, as it is more precise, energy-saving and handy to use. With a smart or programmable thermostat, you can remotely control your indoor using your smartphone or tablet.
