Reasons why air conditioners often work poorly in summer
1. Incorrect installation
In the hot summer, the temperature rises, forcing the air conditioner to work harder to cool down. The difference in outside temperature and room environment is large, so the machine works continuously for a longer time, the capacity High energy consumption leads to damage.
In addition, many families believe that installing an air conditioner in the corner of a hot room will help the room quickly cool down. This concept is completely wrong and easily leads to the condition that the air conditioner has to run overloaded when it has to cool the superheated wall first and then the air in the room. Especially for hot summer days, installing air conditioners in hot corner or direct sunlight will cause the air conditioner to work continuously, which consumes more power and may lead to overload. .
Large amount of power consumption, unstable power is the cause of machine damage
Ideally, you should install the machine in a cool, airy location and located in the center of the room. In this way, the temperature in the room can be reduced quickly and then slowly cooling in areas where there is a lot of heat, such as the surface of the wall and the corner of the house.
2. Air conditioner temperature setting is too low
In the hot summer days, many people often have the habit of setting the air conditioner at the lowest temperature to cool the room. However, continuously adjusting the low temperature can cause the air conditioner to overload or reduce its life significantly.
Leaving the temperature too low can cause the air conditioner to overload and not reach the desired level of cold.
In addition, keeping the temperature too low is not good for health because the temperature difference is too high between the inside and outside, which easily leads to heat stroke. You should set the air conditioner temperature to about 25 degrees Celsius or just 5-7 degrees Celsius lower than the outdoor temperature to help the machine work well as well as protect the family’s health.
You can use an additional electric fan because the wind of the electric fan and the cool air in the air-conditioned room will help users feel much cooler if only using the air conditioner.
3. Machine lost cold due to lack of gas
In air conditioners that have been used for several years, many very small leaks lead to poor cooling. Therefore, after cleaning and maintaining the machine, it still feels a little cold, you must check the gas. Or if you have charged gas but the machine is still not cold enough, you need to quickly find the cause of the leak, fix it, and then refill the gas.
4. Air conditioner works continuously
On hot days, many families often leave the air conditioner running continuously to avoid heat. However, doing so will increase electricity bills and reduce the life of the machine. You should turn off the air conditioner and open the door to catch the outdoor air, so that the air conditioner has time to rest and save electricity.
During cool weather such as night or early morning, turn off the air conditioner and open the door to let in some outdoor air. You should use the timer mode of the air conditioner to adjust the shutdown time, especially at night when you are asleep. Thus, it will ensure you both have a good night’s sleep, do not get cold at night, and save electricity.
5. Do not clean the air conditioner periodically
Maintaining the best temperature stability of the air conditioner depends a lot on the ventilation and cleanliness of both the outdoor unit and the indoor unit. Especially the air filter of the indoor unit. If dirt adheres to, the cooling capacity of the air conditioner will be reduced and power consumption will be used to ensure room temperature. Therefore, you should regularly ventilate the outdoor unit and indoor unit to prevent dirt from sticking to the machine to work best.
6. Remedies to make the air conditioner work better in the summer
When the weather starts in the hot season, you should carry out maintenance, check the operating status of the machine, clean the air conditioner, refill the gas fully.
Install transformers to maintain voltage stability for air conditioners.
Cover the outdoor unit carefully to avoid being exposed to sunlight, and avoid placing it in too hot places. Do not use the air conditioner continuously for a long time. (no more than 4 hours)
Do not adjust the room temperature to differ by more than 10 degrees Celsius from the outside temperature
Put more fans in the room.
Hopefully, the above useful information will help you overcome the problem of poor air conditioning in the summer. Good luck!
