Issues with Aircon Condenser
Central and Split Type Air Condition are those air cooling system which have a two set of units, one is placed inside the room and one outdoors. The outdoor unit is commonly known to be the condenser unit. This other part of the system includes the compressor, coil and blower fan. These parts play a very crucial role in the cooling process; therefore any damage inside the condenser system will result to failure in the entire system. Another problem aside its cooling process is the energy efficiency that will lead to a dramatic increase in your electricity bill.
There are a lot of reasons why problem arises from the air conditioner’s condenser. One reason would be the unstable power supply inside the system. The motor inside should be regularly checked of the wirings have become faulty over time or the inability of some parts to no longer work like they used to like the fan and compressor. Electrical failures will cause an energy fluctuation that will be deficient for the outside unit to work properly. Another impractical cause for the compressor to fail are the possibility of dirt and debris that may get stuck inside the condenser unit. Leaves, grass, dust and other contaminants are very prone to get stuck inside the outdoor unit and will affect the normal functionality of the compressor.
Checking for Signs of an Aircon Condenser Issue
- Observable decrease in cooling efficiency
Considering the very parts inside the condenser will give us an idea to what will possibly happen when its parts start to fail. One of the very first thing technician would inspect when there is a reduced cooling is the outdoor unit. Whatever the damage may be inside the condenser ultimately affects the cooling process. It may restrict the refrigerant flow that will reduce cooling efficiency.
- Presence of Leaking
One should be concerned when there are moisture or water dripping out of the compressor unit. This would mean that the refrigerant inside the system is leaking outside from a possible crack or hole in the cooling system. This should be prevented right away as this would eventually dry all the refrigerant inside that is very vital for the cooling process. The chemicals exposed outside the system could also pose health risks to people like eye irritation, nausea, respiratory illness and more.
- Noticeable Noise
Different sound produced coming from the air cooling system is a sign of a system failure. A primary symptom of this would be a sign of hard-starting from the system when turning it ON. The sound it makes when turned on could mean an electrical failure. The noise could also come from the compressor motors that may have worn out that result to a rattling sound during operation. This should be fixed by well-trained HVAC technicians like those in Oasis Aircon as this would involve electric wirings that be hazardous when handled by inexperienced people.
Solutions to a Aircon Condenser Problems
- Regularly Evaluate compressor temperature
Overheating compressor contributes to the most common cause of compressor damage. The heat inside could eventually lead to system breakdown. The technician should be able to evaluate compressor temperature specifically in the discharge line. This is approximately 6 inches from the compressor outlet that will give the technician an idea of the current system temperature. Most common cases should measure a temperature not exceeding 225° that will classify it as normal. There are a lot of reasons with the increase of condenser temperature like dirt, overcharged refrigerant and motor malfunction.
- Fix underlying problems
There are a lot of problems that may arise from the outdoor unit. Identifying which part of the system should be done to determine the proper way of fixing the air conditioning system. The most common problems encountered by technicians are related with the compressor. Electrical problems may arise that will affect the frequent cycling of the system. An observable turning ON and OFF of the AC is an indication that there is something wrong with the electrical units. This will lead to overheating and failed capacitor. Another would be the breakdown of motor that is usually an expensive repair when not maintained regularly. These kinds of problems pertaining to compressors inside the condenser pose a very complex issue and should only be assessed and fixed by technicians.
