Lennox Elite Series EL16XC1 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2018-07-10

One of the things that can cause stress to homeowners is an underperforming air conditioner, especially during the hottest days of summer. No one would want to deal with an inefficient cooling system that is utterly unable to keep you cool while you’re indoors! The good thing is that when AC systems start to lose their efficiency, they will show signs of decline.

If you have to turn your thermostat lower than usual, but it still doesn’t make much of a difference, it indicates that your air conditioner is ether due for a repair or a replacement. This is a sign that your thermostat lacks the ability to properly circulate the air to keep your home comfortably cool.

The AC compressor is one of the most important parts of your system. It transforms the refrigerant from liquid to gas and back again in a continuous cycle, which creates cool air. However, if your AC starts to operate with excessive noise, chances are, the compressor is showing signs of trouble. Just before it fails, it will have a hard time starting, meaning it’s struggling to turn on.

Clicking sounds when the AC starts could indicate that the compressor motor mounts have failed and the motor that distributes conditioned air from within the compressor has become faulty and started clobbering around inside its housing.

Also, if you notice pools of moisture around any area of your air conditioner, it could mean that refrigerant leak is taking place. If you have an old unit, this could be a potential health risk as it can cause symptoms like headaches, nausea, irritated eyes, etc.

In addition to these signs, other problems like frequent need for repairs, abnormally high utility bills, and poor indoor air quality can tell that your air conditioner is about to say “sayonara”.
