As we all know, home heating and air conditioning systems run on electricity, and a good deal of it. From time-to-time you may find yourself faced with HVAC electrical issues that need electrical repairs. It is never wise to attempt to repair your own air conditioning system when it encounters problems of any type, especially electrical problems. Instead, rely upon Gervais Electric, Inc. and our highly skilled and certified team of electricians.
Our certified and trained electricians are equipped to handle all your electrical repairs and needs, including all those electrical issues you may experience with your HVAC system. There are three primary HVAC electrical issues you can encounter with your air conditioning system this summer.
The many wires that are part of the overall makeup of your air conditioning system tend to corrode or fray over time and particularly those that are exposed to many of the outdoor elements. The fraying and corrosion of these damaged wires will affect the overall proper delivery of electricity and will continue to disrupt the flow of electricity until they are properly replaced by a professional. Again, we highly suggest you do not attempt to replace the wiring in your AC system on your own, but rather put your trust in our reliable team of electricians.
Overloaded Circuit Breakers
Every home’s air conditioning system should have its own circuit breaker in your electrical panel because of the excessive amount of power it continually draws. If your home’s circuit breaker keeps tripping time and time again, especially during the sweltering summer months, you need to take steps to have it inspected by a professional electrician. A professional will typically find the source of the problem to be one of two things. More times than not they find that the problem stems from an air conditioning system that is drawing too much power thus tripping the circuit breaker, or secondly, the breaker itself may be faulty. Whatever the source of your HVAC electrical problem, rest assure our team of professionals will identify it and provide you with fast and effective solutions to the problem to limit the amount of disruption to your AC system this summer.
Capacitors are key components of any air conditioning system. They are designed to assist the various motors in your AC system to start up when needed and to run consistently. With that said, every air conditioning system has two different types of capacitors – a start capacitor and a run capacitor. Over time, these capacitors may become damaged and cause malfunction to your AC system primarily due to age and lifespan issues. When the capacitors malfunction, they directly affect the motors within your AC system and create a serious HVAC electrical problem. As with the above, never attempt to resolve these problems on your own, but rather trust our professionals to get the job done and get your air conditioning system up and running again to handle all the summer heat.
Summer is certainly a favorite time of year for so many people. From backyard barbecues and picnics, and family gatherings, to vacation destinations and a variety of summer festivals and activities, the time spent in the summer is varied. However, when your air conditioning system is not working properly, or not working at all, it can certainly put a strain on all that summer comfort and fun. If you find yourself in need of HVAC electrical repairs or services or need any other type of electrical services, then surely you have come to the right place.
