Here Are Some Possible Explanations

It gets very hot here in the Coachella Valley, and we’re not the only ones who feel the heat. Our air conditioners work hard to battle those high temperatures, and sometimes it can be too much for them to handle. When that happens, your system can overheat and completely stop cooling your home. Today we’re going to talk about what it means when your air conditioner is overheating and some of the most common explanations for why it happens!

What does it mean when your air conditioner is overheating?

Essentially what overheating boils down to is that your air conditioner is putting in too much work. This is typically because of an issue with one or more of your system’s components. When your air conditioner has to work harder than usual, it consumes a lot more energy than it usually does. This overflow of electricity can cause the circuit breaker for your air conditioner to trip, which will shut down your system’s energy supply as a safety precaution.

There are a number of air conditioner components that can overheat, but the most common of them tend to be fan motors, compressors and capacitors.

How can you prevent your air conditioner from overheating?

As with many air conditioner problems, the easiest way to prevent your air conditioner from overheating is to change your air filter every month and schedule a tune-up for your system before every cooling season. Keeping a fresh filter will avoid problems related to dirt buildup in your system, and during a tune-up we’ll check for all of the problems listed above and more.
