Common Summer Air Conditioning Issues and How to Prevent Them

May 31, 2024 | Blog

Summer in Beaumont, Lumberton, Bridge City, and Orange can be sweltering, making it essential to keep your air conditioning system running smoothly. Efficient Systems AC and Plumbing is here to help you understand common summer HVAC issues and how to prevent them.

1. Dirty Air Filters

One of the most common issues is dirty air filters. Clogged filters restrict airflow, causing your system to work harder and less efficiently. To prevent this, check your filters monthly and replace them as needed.

2. Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant is crucial for cooling your home. Low refrigerant levels can lead to warm air blowing from your vents. If you suspect a leak, contact Efficient Systems AC and Plumbing at (409) 240-0943 for a professional inspection and repair.

3. Thermostat Malfunctions

A faulty thermostat can cause your system to cycle on and off too frequently or not at all. Ensure your thermostat is properly calibrated and consider upgrading to a programmable model for better efficiency.

4. Clogged Drains

Your AC system removes moisture from the air, which drains outside. Over time, these drains can become clogged, leading to water damage and humidity issues. Regular maintenance can keep the drains clear and prevent backups.

5. Electrical Issues

Summer storms and high demand can cause electrical problems, such as tripped breakers or blown fuses. If your system shuts down unexpectedly, it’s best to call a professional to diagnose and fix the issue.

Preventive Maintenance

The best way to avoid these issues is through regular preventive maintenance. Schedule a tune-up with Efficient Systems AC and Plumbing to ensure your system is ready for the summer heat. Our experienced technicians will perform a thorough inspection, clean critical components, and address any potential problems before they become major issues.
