Air conditioning systems in your homes is no longer a luxury these days. Unlike the older times, when only the rich can afford air conditioning system, it is already a common sightings in homes. Whether it be a flush subdivision or a low cost housing, air conditioning systems are now installed. Maintaining such systems is quite expensive, to add to that, the power consumption that is incurred. To limit unexpected additional expenses, please be aware of the common causes of poor air flow from your AC making the aircon not cold.
Condenser. It is one part of the air conditioning system, that involves collecting air and convert it from gas to liquid form, thus separating heat from cold. If the condenser is blocked by foreign objects, it will cause fewer air that is converted, than the normal amount of air required as per designed. The air converted will then be blown inside the rooms. So, fewer air intake and converted, less air flow.
Block vents and registers. Vents and registers are the exit points of an air conditioning system, where cool air passes through, towards the rooms or the interior of the building or structure. When this component of the system is blocked, it will cause very less air flow. Furniture arrangement must also be considered, because furniture placed directly opposite any vent, will also cause less air flow.
Filters. Filters play an important role in the system. It filters the air intake preventing dust, dirt and other foreign objects from entering the ducts. Dirt when inside the duct will cause damage. When the filter is clogged by dirt and other objects, preventing the exact amount of air to go in, poor air flow will be observed. Filters should be change often and in doing so, please choose the one required by its specification. This is to avoid damage.
Ducts. This is the component in the system where cold air passes through, going to the vents. Sometimes ducts are blocked by dust and moist inside. It will cause narrowing of the duct inside and when it happens, its capacity to allow air to flow, lessen. It is possible when air filter is damage and allows dirt to enter the duct. Another cause of poor air flow is leaking duct. When there is a crack or hole in the duct, it allows air to come out in other area. So, the air flow towards the vents decreases making it one of the reasons why aircon is not cold.
Air conditioning systems are designed to bring quality, cooled air to our homes and businesses. This is to bring a relax and comfortable feeling to the people inside. In businesses, it will improve productivity and of course profit. In homes, it will create a very relaxing environment. An atmosphere much needed to cool off from a very tiring day at work.
The key here is maintenance. By doing so properly, it will longer the life span of the system and will resort to less financial woes. You can always check for problems yourself, but please leave doing repairs to the professionals.
