Reasons Why Air-con Break Down

Why Aircon Break Down
 The Reasons Why Air-con Break Down

Aircon broke down? For Singapore hot and humid weather, installing air conditioners in homes and offices is something most cannot do without. They provide the cool and refreshing air that help to keep workers alert at work and for families to sleep and rest well at night.

Many may have taken the air conditioner for granted and make it work even harder on those very hot months. One day, you may find that your air conditioning units are no longer operating as efficiently as before. Some of the warning symptoms include rattling sounds, inability of the air conditioner to supply the usual cool refreshing air at the same temperature as before and water leaking from the air conditioning units. Eventually the air conditioning unit may simply break down completely if nothing is done to rectify the earlier problems.

There are various reasons why the above are happening.
Firstly, an air conditioner, like any machine, relies on lubrication in order to run properly. So poor lubrication of its parts could have produced the noises that you hear, worse still, because of loss or lack of lubrication or contamination of the lubrication oil, the air conditioning unit may just break down.

Secondly, refrigerant is the chemical that helps cool the air. If the air conditioning unit is supplying warm instead of cool air or a lot of energy is required to generate the desired cool temperature, you could suspect low refrigerant or refrigerant is leaking due to leaking pipes.

Thirdly, besides the coolant, the air conditioner also removes moisture/ humidity from the area in which it is installed to provide you with comfort. During this process, water is formed; the amount depends on the type and size of the air conditioner, operating efficiency and humidity in the air. This water has to be drained way. If the air conditioning unit is unable to properly drain the moisture or unable to do so at all, water leaks and the device will break down.

Fourthly, the air conditioner works poorly or not at all simply because lots of dust, dirt and filth had gathered in the filters of the air conditioning units after long usage. As a result, lots of power is required to operate the air conditioning unit to the required cool temperature. When this happens, not only would you incur hefty electrical bills, the air circulating will be detrimental to your health too.

Finally, other causes of air conditioner break down could be due age and over usage of machine and faulty installation e.g. faulty wiring or the fan unit that is responsible for transferring heat from home to outside air does not operate, leading to overheating of compressor and hence tripping the safety overload, probably causing severe damage to the compressor.

To overcome the above problems, all you need is to have preventive measures in place i.e. seek the help of professional air-con company to clean, maintain and inspect your air conditioning units regularly! They will vacuum and clean the filters and coils and lubricate the various parts of your air conditioning units. They will also inspect the air conditioning units e.g. to determine any refrigerant leaks, check that the fans and compressor are working well and wash them as well, if applicable. So do not wait for your machine to break down before you take any action, get your air conditioners serviced regularly now!
