Don’t delay your A/C repairs!Your central air conditioning system relies on each component operating at peak capacity. The system requires a great deal of air transfer. It moves heat from inside your home to the outside and blows cool air into your home by extracting heat out of the air. The air is cooled as it flows over an evaporator coil, which is filled with refrigerant. As the refrigerant absorbs heat, it changes from liquid to gas. A compressor pump, which is run by a motor, is used to move the refrigerant between the evaporator coil and outside condenser coil, where it converts back into liquid. While this is a simplified version of how your cooling system works, it indicates how each component depends on the proper operation of the others. Restricted airflow, too much or too little refrigerant, misaligned belts, and friction in the motors are all little problems, which could quickly set off a domino effect and damage the entire system.
When you notice even a minor disruption in performance, don’t put off calling for professional service. Musty smells can be a sign of mold or mildew. These contaminants restrict airflow, block coils, and pose a serious health concern. While you might be tempted to live with a slight, unpleasant odor, consider that airborne spores can be sprayed directly into your breathing air every time cooling is activated. Allergies, asthma, and respiratory infections have all been linked to contaminated cooling systems. You’ll also pay higher energy bills as the system struggles to answer thermostat settings. Screeching and grinding sounds, temperature swings, inferior cooling, elevated humidity, and excess dust in the air are all indications of faults within the system. When handled quickly, these issues can be resolved with simple and cost-effective adjustment, cleaning, and tuning. The licensed technicians from Smart Choice Heating & Cooling, Inc. will ensure a clean, healthy, and reliably cool home for you to enjoy.
