3 ways you can diagnose air conditioner problems

Is your air conditioner not cooling the air anymore? Have you noticed that the fan is getting loud or
acting up? If you have noticed any sorts of these issues with your air conditioner unit, then you may
want to read through this article. In this article, you can learn about some of the common ways that you
can diagnose any sort of common problem with your A/C unit. Knowing how to diagnose your A/C
system can actually be a very useful thing. This is because if you know how to diagnose your air
conditioner’s problems, then you would know how to fix it as well. So here are some ways that you can
check for problems in your air conditioner.

Checking for leaks
You can use a UV air conditioner leak detection kit to check for any leaks in your A/C system. Using this
kind of kit is the fastest and more accurate way that you can check for leaks. You could easily find these
kinds of kits for sale at a hardware store. And using them is rather easy, as you can easily find their
usage instructions within the packaging of the product. You may also check the fittings around the A/C
to see if they are all secure. A loose fitting may be a sign of a leak. You may also look at the O-rings
around your A/C valves to see if they are all securely fastened as well. Again, a loose O-ring may be a
sign that your air conditioner has got a leak.

Checking for compressor problems
If you would like to check for compressor problems within your air conditioner, you can turn it on and
set it to max settings, such as a high fan speed. If you switch it on to the max settings, you should hear the clutch of the compressor engage. If it does not engage, then you definitely have something wrong with your condenser.

Checking for filter or fan problems
The most obvious way that you can check for filter problems is to see if it is too dirty. A dirty filter can
easily cause a lot of issues with your air conditioner, such as making your fan or compressor struggle.
You can easily fix that kind of problem if you just replace or even clean the air filter of your A/C. Another
way that you can check out a fan problem is to see if there are any bugs, dirt or debris in the air
conditioning itself, since those can clog up the fan.

If you ever encounter anything wrong with your air conditioning system, then you can use these tips to
help you diagnose any kind of common problem that is wrong with your air conditioner. If you still
cannot find out what the problem of your A/C is, then you may want to call for the help of professional
air conditioning service companies. These professionals are able to spot exactly what is wrong with your
A/C, and they can offer an effective fix to your air conditioner problem as well. So you should definitely
give that company a call, since you will certainly be able to get your air conditioner unit fixed, with their
help.

Our Mission

The Coachella Valley and Palo Verde Valley’s are endowed with rich natural resources – clean air, dramatic scenic vistas, unlimited sunlight, consistent winds, and geothermal energy. As a region the local governments have a visionary plan to preserve habitat and open space. California is leading the way on air quality and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Today, it is important for local governments to take leadership roles and commit to a regional effort to ensure that we maintain our air quality, encourage sustainable use of resources, and preserve our environment for future generations. To support this effort all local governments are collaborating to promote energy efficiency and clean alternative energy.

Together, our elected officials can make positive changes and ensure healthy, vibrant and sustainable communities now and for generations to come.

The Southern California Desert has an unprecedented awareness and support for climate-friendly policies. Many actions have already been taken, including energy efficiency programs, solar energy installations, fleet vehicle changes and mixed use projects, all of which will not only contribute to greenhouse gas reduction but will promote energy independence, improve air quality, and reduce congestion. Integrating greenhouse gas reduction with other sustainability initiatives will position the region as a center for renewable energy and green economic growth.

A Little History of Green for Life

The Green for Life program provides jurisdictions with free tools and staff training to understand your emissions (carbon footprint) and identify energy waste and further advance the energy efficiency and cost savings of new and existing municipal, commercial and residential properties.

Each of the region’s cities and Indian Tribes has adopted all or parts of the Green for Life programs and policies. Great care has been taken to customize these programs and policies to conform to each jurisdiction’s specific achievements and goals. The region’s residents, business’ and visitors will gain insight and knowledge directly from their local governments as well as directly via this website.

The Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) received one of the largest awards in the region from Southern California Edison (SCE) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in early 2011 to advance energy efficiency and sustainability.  We are working with member agencies on a uniquely local program to build on our efforts to date and leverage this opportunity for leadership in energy efficiency and sustainability.
