Air conditioning systems can encounter various issues due to disrupted airflow in closed-off rooms, improper operation, poor installation, substandard servicing, or inadequate maintenance. Solares Energies is dedicated to helping you diagnose and remedy these problems, ensuring your comfort in Marbella, Costa del Sol, and beyond.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of some common air conditioning problems:
Refrigerant Leaks: If your air conditioning system is low on refrigerant, it may be due to either an undercharge at installation or a leak. Merely adding refrigerant won’t fix a leak; a trained technician should repair the leak, test the repair, and then refill the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. It’s crucial to match the refrigerant charge with the manufacturer’s specifications to achieve optimum performance and efficiency. Note that refrigerant leaks can also harm the environment.
Inadequate Maintenance: Neglected filters and air conditioning coils can lead to a system malfunction. If these components become dirty, the air conditioner may not work correctly, and the compressor or fans may fail prematurely.
Electric Control Failure: The compressor and fan controls can wear out, particularly when the air conditioner frequently cycles on and off, common in an oversized system. Corrosion of wires and terminals, prevalent in many systems, can also cause problems. Hence, electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.
Sensor Problems: Room air conditioners have a thermostat sensor, usually located behind the control panel, which measures the temperature of the air entering the evaporative coil. If dislodged, the air conditioner may cycle continually or behave erratically. The sensor should be near the coil but not in contact with it; its position on the internal coil can be adjusted by gently bending the wire holding it in place.
Drainage Problems: During high humidity, check the condensate drain to ensure it’s unclogged and draining correctly. Room air conditioners may not drain properly if they’re not mounted level.
