July 5th, 2014

Person looking for a new homeIn Tucson, air conditioning is like a lifeline during the summer. If you are without it, surviving the brutal temperatures of the season will be rough. Keep reading to learn about how to deal with some of the most common air conditioner problems so you can enjoy cool temperatures all summer long.

A Water Leak

If you notice water leaking near your HVAC system, you might have a simple clog. Check the drain line to make sure there is nothing clogging it. You should also check to see if the drain line is still connected. These simple fixes might be all you need to stop the leak and get your air conditioner functioning properly.

A Unit That Turns On and Off

If your unit consistently turns on and off, you might want to call in the professionals to check the thermostat and make sure it is functioning properly. Often times a quick adjustment is all you need to fix the issue. You should also ask the professional to clean the condenser, the evaporator unit, and the fan to ensure that the problem does not keep happening.

The Air Conditioner Does Not Blow Cold Enough

There is nothing worse than turning on the air conditioner during the summer and not feeling cold air. If this is happening with your unit, you should clear out the area near the condenser to try to improve the airflow. Changing the air filter might also help. Try to put some shade over the unit so it stays cooler during the day. Replace the insulation on the refrigerant line. If you still have a problem after taking all of these steps, you should call in the professionals to help you diagnose and fix the problem.
