Keeping your air conditioning system in tip-top condition is critical to your comfort in our area. With warm to hot temperatures a normal part of everyday life, making sure that you have the phone number of a Cypress AC repair company on speed dial can help you stay comfortable even on the steamiest afternoons. One of the most common signs of trouble with your AC system is constant running. Here are some of the most common reasons why your HVAC system is running nonstop.
Your System Is the Wrong Size
Systems that are too small for your home are more likely to continue to run for extended periods in an attempt to cool it to the desired temperature. Undersized systems are less likely to produce comfortable temperatures inside your home and are more likely to wear out and break down over time. In most cases, the only cure for a too-small system is a professional Cypress air conditioning replacement.
Your Evaporator Coil Is Dirty or Frozen
Regular cleanings from a qualified Cypress air conditioning repair company can optimize the performance of your system and can reduce the chance that dirt on your evaporator coils could cause a critical breakdown. Dirty evaporator coils can cause your HVAC system to work harder than it should and may result in leaks and freezing that could cause permanent damage to your unit. Scheduling regular maintenance is essential to keep your cooling and heating system working at peak efficiency. If your coils are frozen, your best bet is to turn off your HVAC system and call an HVAC technician right away.
You Have a Refrigerant Leak
When refrigerant levels in your HVAC system fall to a lower-than-recommended charge, your air conditioning unit may run overtime to try to make up for this deficiency. Calling your local Cypress AC service and repair company is the best and most efficient way to identify and repair the leak in your system and to recharge it for full efficiency and comfortable temperatures indoors.
Your Thermostat Requires Replacement
A damaged or worn-out thermostat could be the cause for constantly running AC systems. If your system does not turn on or off correctly, the lights on your thermostat do not turn on or your AC does not respond appropriately to a demand for power at the thermostat, it may be time to call your local Cypress AC repair company for a test of this control system and a possible replacement.
