Maintaining the comfort of your Hampstead, North Carolina, home is probably one of your top priorities. And your air conditioner is the home appliance most responsible for maintaining the comfort of your home. However, whether through wear and tear or aging, your AC system will eventually experience a problem down the road. Here are three AC repairs that will make your home feel more comfortable:
Replacing a Clogged Filter
Clogged air filters can impact the comfort of your home in two ways. First, they can reduce the flow of air through your system, resulting in reduced efficiency and problems maintaining comfortable temperatures. Also, dirty air filters can reduce the quality of air in your home, usually accompanied by worsening respiratory difficulties. You should aim to change your filter every 30 to 90 days to prevent these problems.
Charging Low Refrigerant
When the refrigerant levels are low, your AC system will lose its cooling power. Furthermore, low refrigerant can lead to discomfort in your home and also be a sign of a leak. If you observe your vents dispensing warm air or hear a hissing sound coming from your air conditioner, you could have a refrigerant leak. Hire an HVAC professional to examine your air conditioner prevent personal injury or system damage.
Upgrading the Thermostat
A good thermostat will do wonders for your comfort. But a bad and wrongly configured thermostat will affect it in more ways than one. You’ll need to calibrate your thermostat throughout its lifecycle. Failure to do so could mean it won’t read the temperature and switch the system on and off correctly.
If you’ve been having problems with your thermostat frequently, consider upgrading to a new smart model. The smart model automatically calibrates itself. As a result, it relieves you of the stress of manually scaling your system’s thermostat.
