Air Conditioning for offices, shops, residential outlets in the UK is used throughout the year more than we think. Even in the freezing cold mid-winter months a busy and tightly packed office can get hot, humid and stuffy so many larger office blocks with multiple floors have air conditioning systems that adjust in order to maintain a centrally set temperature. Of course when summer arrives air conditioners are used even more to maintain a cool working environment. Repeated usage and low maintenance can sometimes result in air conditioning systems breaking down. At Enertech FM we provide flexible air conditioning repairs in Durham for a wide variety of organisations and businesses and although air conditioning systems themselves are fairly complex, our engineers tend to encounter reoccurring issues.
The coolness of newly conditioned air is attributed to the work of the coolant leaving behind heat as it condenses from gas to liquid form on the inside of a network of condenser coils. Sometimes refrigerant can leak up from the condenser coils causing problems with the air conditioning unit and restricting it from maintaining a consistent temperature. Coolant leaks can vary in severity but in the most serious of cases, you may need a replacement coil. Coolant leaks can also cause compressor overload as the unit will have to work harder to produce the same amount of cool air with less coolant.
Clogged Up Filters
The filter is one of the most important parts of the air conditioning unit as it removes an untold amount of dust and bacteria from the air. When a filter gets too blocked up or dirty then the system physically can’t force more air through it hence why the output of freshly cooled air is minimal. Most systems and their compatible filters have instructions on how frequently they need to be changed and many instances of blocked filters usually come down to these instructions not being followed.
The compressor plays a pivotal part in the entire cooling process as it is responsible for changing the coolant chemical from gas to liquid form. If a compressor has slowed down or for some reason is not fully compressing the coolant, there will be less liquid to evaporate into a gas. This is important because it is within this liquid-to-gas transition that heat is absorbed from the air this making conditioned air.
Our engineers commonly find evidence of faulty fuses which are placed to prevent the AC’s motor unit from overheating. On many occasions, these fuses will often fail to leave the motor unit unguarded from overload. We tend to find that overloaded motors occur more in the summer when raised temperatures force many air conditioning units to work harder. Poorly maintained airconditioning units that are undergoing systemic stress are also prime candidates for fuse failure and motor overload problems.
