Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric specializes in air conditioning repair, preventative maintenance, installation, and replacement. Our NATE-certified AC technicians have extensive experience with all types of traditional and ductless systems. We have proudly served Deerfield, IL and other amazing communities in northwest Chicago since 1928.
Why Is Air Conditioning So Important?
Your home’s air conditioning system is responsible for a lot more than just providing cool air. It also filters the air and controls humidity levels, both of which are very important for indoor air quality. Filtering the air that comes through your vents keeps airborne contaminants like dust, dust mites, and microorganisms at minimal levels. And maintaining humidity between 30% and 50% fights against mold and mildew growth, which can cause serious adverse health effects, especially in elderly people.
What Are Some Common Problems That Air Conditioners Have?
The air conditioning system in your Deerfield, Illinois home can develop various problems if not properly maintained. Some of the most common problems homeowners encounter are reduced airflow, low refrigerant levels, short cycling, poor air quality, and ductwork that is not sealed tight. Less frequently, we deal with condenser malfunctions, thermostat malfunctions, condenser coil freeze-ups, and leaking refrigerant lines. Every air conditioner repair project is unique and provides us with another opportunity to exceed our customer’s expectations.
DIY Tips for AC Maintenance
While there is no substitute for a professional air conditioning repair service, there are some things you can do at home to keep your AC system functioning optimally. It’s imperative to change your filters according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Although it may seem obvious, if your air conditioner will not power on, be sure to check the breaker box for a tripped breaker. This is a common oversight that many homeowners have when their AC system won’t turn on.
Another seemingly obvious quick fix for an AC system that’s not cooling properly is to ensure the thermostat is set to COOL and isn’t accidentally turned off or set to HEAT.
It’s also important to visually inspect all components of the system that you can, noting anything that is vibrating, making noise, or working improperly. And remember, it’s important to address any potential problems as soon as possible. Left unaddressed, air conditioning system problems almost always worsen. And that means more expensive repairs and replacements.
