Before getting in detail about the air conditioning service, we must know in general about the term air conditioner and its usage. Actually, an air conditioner is electronic equipment that provides a comfortable environment by removing the heat and moisture from the interior of an occupied space.
Now a day, air conditioning has become too common that can be used in both domestic as well as in a commercial environment. The overall outcome of this concept is to make the environment cool and comfortable for living. These air condition often use a fan to distribute the conditioned air to an occupied space such as a building, a car just to improve the thermal comfort and indoor air quality. This electric refrigerant-based air conditioner unit ranges from small units that can cool a small bedroom to a massive unit where they can be installed on the roof of the office towers and that can cool an entire building. These units are identified with respect to the voltage. The cooling is achieved through its refrigeration cycle, but sometimes it does use the evaporation or free cooling system to cool the environment. On the whole, an air conditioner can be defined as a modern technology that modifies the condition of air.
5 Things To Do Immediately About Air Condition service
As every other electronic device, the regular use of this air conditioner can tend to the loss of performance. Thus, an air conditioner must be serviced on a regular basis (at least once in every 3-month). These air conditioner services are provided by the professionals. During the servicing, depending upon the usage of the air conditioner the below issues may occur,
The leakage of water in an AC takes place when there can be clogged condensate drain line, broken condensate pump, damaged/rusted drain pan and dirty air filter. All these issues raise due to the problem in the evaporator coil. Generally, the AC’s inside unit contains the evaporator coil that cools the warm air that was blown over it. This causes condensation (moisture) to form on the coil, just as how water droplets form on a cold glass of water on a hot day. Later the moisture on the coil drips into a drain pan and down a condensate drain line (a white PVC pipe) that leads out your home.
Loss of performance
Mostly, it does happen that the performance of an air conditioner gets slow down day by day when used throughout the day. There are many reasons behind this but still, there could be three primary pieces of equipment that can cause this issue: a coil within the duct work that is placed near your furnace or air handler, a powerful fan within the air handler and a condensing unit that is located outside your home.
Prone to Freezing
If your air conditioner is freezing up and possibly dripping water onto the floor then this can lead to having severe damage to your air conditioner system in future if not treated in the beginning. The concept of frozen air conditioner that provides an improper cooling is something that describes the Joule-Thomson’s thermodynamic principle that states that, if everything in equipment is kept constant, then as the gas expands, its pressure decreases and as a result, the temperature will also decrease. Similarly, as the gas is compressed its temperature will automatically increase and this can lead the system to freeze up.
Sometimes, the air conditioner can have a smell of mold and/or mildew that can just spoil the entire environment of the place. This stale odour could be caused due to a dirty evaporator coil, clogged condensate drain-line and leaky air ducts.
Air conditioning service increased energy bills
Mostly, when the air conditioner is not serviced in a regular interval, there will be an impact over the electricity consumption including freezing up and low-performance issues. There are four factors that influence the electricity load: Indoor air temperature, outdoor temperature, thermal insulation of the room and temperature setting of the air condition.
