New Jersey Air Conditioning Tip

Did you know that ice on your central air conditioner can happen as a result of a dirty filter? A dirty filter will restrict air flow, which can cause ice to form on your evaporator coils. Ice can also form because of low refrigerant or a problem with your drain line. If you notice ice building up on your air conditioning system, call a professional to take a look. They will make sure to get rid of the ice and fix the underlying problem.

Identifying the Problem

Of course, before you know you need to call us to repair your air conditioning system, you need to know that there’s a problem to begin with. Often the problem will be all too evident. If you turn on your air conditioning on a sweltering summer day and nothing happens, you know it’s time to call for AC repairs.  This is probably the last situation you want to wind up in. After all, it’s certainly preferable to catch problems earlier so that you can have the repairs done without losing your air conditioning all together for any amount of time. To do that, though, you have to know what warning signs to watch out for that could alert you to the need for repairs. 

Warning Signs That Signal AC Repair is Needed

So what are these early warning signs? Well, there are quite a few different things you can watch for:

  • No Cool Air
    This could be a sign that your system is need of serious repair. For instance, lack of cool air could mean that your system’s compressor has failed. It could also mean that you’re your system’s Freon levels are too low. When that time comes, you might have to replace the AC unit.

  • Poor Air Flow
    If you are noticing weak or little air flow through your AC vents, the unit’s compressor may be failing. In case your areas or rooms in your home are getting cold air while others are not, then the trouble might be with your duct work and it’s a sign that your AC system needs urgent repair.  Over time, debris can get stuck in your air conditioning vents. Not only this obstructs airflow, but it also presents a health risk to you and your family. Having your air conditioner’s ducts cleaned is a great way to restore airflow and ensure that your AC system is working well when you need it most.

  • Thermostat Problems
    At times the trouble is not with the air conditioning unit, but with the thermostat itself.  The type of thermostat you wind up with can make a big difference in the overall performance of your system, in the size of your energy bills and in how comfortable you are in your home. The technicians at DB Heating & Cooling, Inc. are here to answer any questions you may have about the various types of thermostats and they’ll make their expert recommendations for your home. 

  • Moisture Where It Shouldn’t Be
