Air conditioning systems work hard to cool during the summer weather, and there may be some repairs that need to be done. As the warmer weather begins to cool down, you may need HVAC repairs to prepare for winter and turn your AC off for the rest of the summer. The following HVAC repairs are some of the things that might need to be done as summer weather ends:
Storm Damage to the AC Condensing Unit
The condensing unit of your air conditioner is vulnerable to damage due to weather and pests. Therefore, at the end of summer, you are going to want to check the condensing unit for damage. If there is storm damage due to wind and debris, these problems will need to be repaired before weatherizing the air conditioner. You will also want to check for signs of damage due to pests, such as nests and chewed wires. Cleaning your condensing unit will also help improve the performance and efficiency of your AC.
Dirty Parts Causing Issues With Freezing
The air conditioner uses a compressed gas and coils to provide thermal heat transfer that cools your home. These coils get cold, and when there is dust on them, ice can form. This can cause damage to the compressor and other AC parts during hot weather when your air conditioner is working hard to keep your home cool. Therefore, you may need to have the system cleaned and inspected for damage at the end of summer if you are having problems with parts freezing over with ice.
Dirty and Worn Blower Causing HVAC Problems
The blower motor of your HVAC is also vulnerable to problems that can affect the cooling and heating in your home. Therefore, one of the repairs that may need to be done before winter is servicing the blower. First, the blower can be cleaned and checked to ensure it is working. If there is a problem with the blower, an HVAC repair technician will be able to fix it while they are doing the cleaning and other repairs to your heating and cooling system.
HVAC Electrical Problems to Repair Before Winter
There are also electrical problems that you may have with your AC that need to be repaired at the end of the summer. First, the AC condensing unit needs to be checked for problems with bad capacitors and damaged wiring that may need to be repaired. In addition, you will want to have the HVAC thermostat checked to ensure there are not any problems with the wires and that it has batteries if it needs them.
The right repairs at the end of summer will help prepare your HVAC system for the winter weather that will be here soon. Contact an HVAC repair service for help with repairs before the end of summer.
