AC Repairs You May Have To Oversee

Any problems with your home's AC unit can have a sizable impact on the system's ability to cool the interior of the home when it gets hot. While some problems with the AC unit can result in it completely failing to cool the home, there are other problems that will have less obvious impacts on the performance of the home's AC system.

Weakening Air Flow From The AC System

There are many AC problems that could have an impact on the force of the air that is coming from the unit. For example, the AC unit's blower is responsible for forcing the cool air through the ducting and into the interior of the home. Not surprisingly, an AC unit's blower will experience sizable wear and tear that could potentially decrease its performance. As a result, you could find that the air coming from your vents will be much weaker than normal. Timely repair can help this as it will allow the wear and tear that your unit has suffered to be addressed before it can have a major impact on the performance of the blower, and it can reduce the chances of the blower suffering a major failure.

Musty Odors When The AC System Is Active

Mold growing in the AC system can be another component problem that might have to be addressed by the homeowner. A mold problem with the AC system will often manifest itself as foul or musty odors coming from the vents when the system is active. Unfortunately, homeowners may not take this problem seriously, but this can result in the interior air quality of the home greatly decreasing. Furthermore, it may eventually become severe enough to cause the AC system to suffer mechanical problems. Fortunately, removing mold from the AC system will be a relatively simple repair that a technician may be able to complete in a couple of hours. During this process, the AC unit will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized so that any mold spores will be removed. If the mold has made it into the ducting, it will take slightly longer to remove.

Rapid Cycling Between Cooling And Fan Mode

Rapid cycling between cooling mode and fan mode can be a problem that will prevent the AC unit from being able to cool the interior of your home. Unfortunately, this is a problem that may require replacing components of the AC system. In particular, problems with the compressor for the AC unit can lead to this occurring as it is possible for the compressor to rapidly overheat and need time to cool.
