THE CONDITIONER DOES NOT COOL WELL: TEMPERATURE CONTROL
If your home conditioner has a problem, you should avoid using it until this is localized and resolved. Continue to turn it on if there are strange noises or only hot air comes out could damage it and make the situation worse. Cleaning and outdoor unit controls can be performed without, however, forcing the system.
One of the most important things to do is check the temperature. Each air conditioner, in fact, works about the environment in which it was installed. Simplifying: With the air conditioner set in automatic mode, three different situations can occur depending on the desired temperature:
- Ambient temperature of + 3 ° C above the set point: It works in cooling mode
- Lower ambient temperature of 3 ° C than the set temperature: heating mode is activated)
- The temperature of the ventilation is the same as the one set
THE CONDITIONER DOES NOT COOL WELL: SOME PRACTICAL TIPS
Very often cooling problems can be solved in a simpler way than you think. An example? Each air conditioner allows you to adjust the fan speed that is related to the operating mode. By setting a higher speed or automatic speed, you can customize operation according to climatic requirements. Doing this is very simple: even though each AC manufacturers in India calls this function with a specific name, generally the fan speed can be controlled with the “Fan” button.
The problem may be due to an obstacle in front of the suction mouth of the indoor or outdoor unit. In this case, the barrier prevents the air conditioner from pulling enough air for cooling. Talk to your air conditioner manufacturer in India if your device is within warranty.
Another important thing to check is the cleaning of the air conditioner. The filters and the indoor unit must always be cleaned with regular maintenance to be performed periodically according to the guides provided by the technician who installed the system.
The problem may also depend on the machine’s external unit. It is necessary to check whether the grille and the battery are free of dirt and obstructions that affect the free flow of air. This is because if the outdoor unit does not work well, for obvious reasons cold air cannot escape the indoor unit.
Also, pay attention to the power cables. The type of cable inserted affects the capacity of the air conditioner.
Finally, if the air conditioner is switched on, it may be hot in the first few minutes. No fear, it’s normal. This is the preheating phase immediately after ignition, but this does not mean that the conditioner does not cool well.
