When Should You Do Air Con Pressure Test?

Singapore is a place where you cannot live a comfortable life without a properly working Aircon. If your Aircon is not working smoothly, then you will have a sticky, humid and hot surrounding that will be not comfortable at all in any manner. But if you want to make sure your Aircon is working properly and smoothly, then there are several things that you must do and regular pressure test check is one of those things. If you don't do regular pressure test, then you might end up having low amount of coolant in it and you may get various problem with it. And if you are doing regular maintenance then also certain situation or conditions are there in which you may need to check the coolant pressure of your Aircon without any delay.

Here, in this article I am going to talk about some of the conditions explaining when Should You Do Air Con Pressure Test?

Lack of cooling:

 If you notice any kind of lack in cooling in your room without any reason, then it is advised that you do pressure test without any delay. Normally, you get lack of cooling in properly functioning Aircon only if you have lack of coolant in it. With a basic calculation 10% of coolant loss can reduce 20% of your Aircon performance. So, if you have 10% les coolant in your Aircon, then it may reduce 20% performance and you will have less cooling as well. Other than this, it will increase load on your Aircon as well. To deal with this situation you should call some expert or Aircon specialist and you should check the pressure of your coolant. Needless to say, if you have lack of pressure in your Aircon, then you should get it refilled as well without any delay.

Continue compressor running:

If your compressor is continuously running then it can be a clear sign of low pressure in your Aircon. Sometime your Aircon coolant may be less but it may be good enough to cool down your room. However, your Aircon compressor may need to keep working in that situation to maintain the cooling in your room. Normally you may not notice this situation or continue operation of the compressor, but if you notice it then you should consider that as a sign for pressure test. With pressure test you will be able to identify if it is running continuously due to lack of coolant or you got some other issues. If it is lack of coolant, then you can ask someone to refill it and if it is some other issue then you can ask technician to resolve that other issue.

Higher electricity bill:

Sometime your Aircon may keep giving you cool air even with lack of coolant just by overworking. Due to your work or ignorance, you may also ignore the continuous running of compressor, but you cannot ignore higher electricity bill in any condition. If you notice sudden increment in your electricity bill, then you can consider that as a problem in your Aircon. If it working smoothly and you don't see any other issues, then it could be a clear sign for coolant loss. If you will try the pressure test in your Aircon, then you will be able to know the exact cause for this higher electricity bill. If you have lack of coolant pressure, then you can hire some expert or your regular technician to top it up for you. Till that time, you should try not to use your Aircon else it may damage your as well.

Unusual sound from room:

If you are having unusual sound from your Aircon along with lack of cooling or continue running of compressor, then it is a clear sign for coolant loss. If you don't have any coolant in your Aircon or if you have very less amount of it, then it may certainly be a big issue for you and you should go ahead for the pressure test. This unusual sound may appear because of certain other reasons as well, but most of the time gas pressure is responsible for that. If you will top up your Aircon gas, then you will be able to get rid of this issue and you will be able to get cool air with a completely sound and smooth Aircon.

Bad smell:

Sometime you may have a drop of coolant in your Aircon due to a leak. So, if you are assuming you just topped it with coolant and you don't have to check it, then you are wrong about it. The coolant or Aircon refrigerant has a very different smell that is high pitched and gives you a burning feeling in your nostrils and your throat as well. If you notice this kind of smell in your home or open area, then also you should not ignore the sign. After noticing this kind of smell, you should not make any delay and you should ask someone to test it immediately. If you recently topped your Aircon and your pressure test gives you a result of coolant decrease, then it is a clear sign of leak. In this situation, you should not top it up immediately because that will be a waste of your money and time both. Before topping up the gas, you should ask the expert to find the leaking point and you should get it repaired. Only after that you should top up the gas for your Aircon.

If you can keep these things in your mind, then you will not have any problem in your Aircon and you will be able to have really comfortable room as well. Other than this, you will be able to reduce problems as well that you may have in your Aircon due to lack of coolant. So now you know when to do air con pressure test and if you notice this kind of situation in your house, then you should not make any delay and you should ask an expert to check the pressure and to resolve the issues if there are any.
