- Your Circuit Breakers are Tripped
A tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse in your electrical panel is strong evidence that there may be an overheating issue with your motor or compressor.
- Your Air Handler Hasn't Been Properly Maintained
The air handler is ground zero for all the particulates and air contaminants in your home. As your system intakes air within the home, your home’s air must first pass through your air filter before traveling over its evaporator coils.
This means that a dirty, clogged, and insubstantial air filter is preventing air from entering the central air conditioner, causing it to run harder and less efficiently. It also means you’re pulling more debris into the HVAC system which deposit onto your evaporator coils preventing your system from distributing cool air. Be sure to change your air filters monthly and use a 5-inch pleated air filter in your air handler instead of the cheap, 1-inch filters found in most stores.
Your system’s blower motor is what actually pulls the air into your air handler and pushes it out through your ductwork and ventilation. As stated before, a tripped circuit breaker can be evidence of your blower motor going out. Running your HVAC system with a bad blower is inefficient and can even be dangerous. Call Climate Masters INC immediately at (251) 626-9231 if you suspect an issue with your blower motor.
- Your Outdoor Condenser Coils Are Dirty
Due to exposure to the elements, your system’s outdoor condenser coils can collect dirt, dust, and debris preventing your system from cooling efficiently. If the coils are regularly maintained, they can usually be cleaned with a water hose. If they’re not, they’ll need to be chemically cleaned by an HVAC professional.
These problems are strongly indicative that there’s a serious problem looming on the horizon or that one has already occurred. In the latter case, Climate Masters INC has years of experience in central air conditioning repair
