Why You Need to Upgrade to the Lennox Elite Series XC13 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2022-07-12

Running your air conditioner, especially during the heat of summer, is a not just a luxury but necessity. It gives you a rather normal life in the midst of unbearable heat. But not every AC delivers true comfort. If you have an old, inefficient unit, you probably are experiencing more troubles than a homeowner with a relatively new unit.

One of the most common signs of an aging AC is when it begins to blow warm air. Here are some of the reasons why this happens.

Thermostat Issues

When the thermostat is having problems, your AC never reaches the temperature you initially set. A buildup of grime can cause discrepancies between the actual room temperature and the outside temperature. In this case, you need to clean the thermostat. Using canned compressed air or a soft brush, clean the mechanical and electrical components of your thermostat. Once it’s clean, inspect the parts and look for obvious damage like loose wiring or screws. If there are any signs of corrosion on the wiring, you can use the wiring diagram in your owner’s manual as a replacement guide, or just replace the thermostat altogether.

In addition, of the thermostat is placed in a bad location such as close to heat sources, exposed to direct sunlight, or in an isolated spot that’s away from the living areas. If that’s the case, try relocating the thermostat.

Leaking Refrigerant

The air conditioner’s refrigerant is responsible for absorbing heat from inside your home and transferring it outside. If your system has an inadequate level of refrigerant, it will take much longer for your home to cool down since there is not enough refrigerant to take away the heat.

It is difficult to detect an air conditioner leaking refrigerant. For your safety, have a qualified technician inspect your system, locate the leaks, seal them off, and recharge your AC with the right amount of refrigerant.

However, if the problem becomes recurrent, and if your existing unit is over a decade old, you might want to start shopping for a new cooling system.
